Peachtree Community News
On Sunday morning Pastor Whitehouse continued his sermon series on the topic of the “Lord’s Prayer”.  His key verse was “Lead us not into temptation--”, Matt.6: 13a.  He titled it “Without God, We Don’t Have a Chance, Part I”.  When we pray, admitting that we are powerless to face the problems of life, God delights in helping us.

The sanctuary flowers were given by Robert Sykes in honor of his wife, Amy.  The choir sang “He Touched Me”, directed by Pastor Whitehouse.  Beverly Wilson’s sermon to the children was about “things that smell good.” and she shared several with them.  She quoted a scripture from Corinthians that says, “For we are to God the aroma of Christ-- the fragrance of life”. She reminded them to be good as well as to smell good.
