The service at Peachtree begun on Sunday morning with the Ordinance of Baptism.  It was a beautiful service as Stephanie Denis and Jeremy Browder entered the baptismal pool and were baptized by Pastor Whitehouse.  Special music was “Center of My Joy”, with Jane May playing the piano accompaniment as David Griffin whistled.

 Pastor Whitehouse’s sermon was titled “What God Wants for All of Us”, based on Mark 8: 22-26.  Lessons learned are that Jesus deals with us according to our need.  We don’t all change at the same rate and sometimes it is very slow but spiritual growth is growth.  We need to be honest with God so that He can help us.

 Beverly Wilson’s children’s sermon was about how Halloween started back in Europe.  It was called “All Saint’s Day” and people honored those Saints who had died.  She invited the congregation to call out the names of those saints who had passed on from Peachtree Church.  Many of the deceased were named and a prayer of thanksgiving for them was offered.  Then she gave each child a raisin cake as was the custom in Europe.

 On Friday night a “Revive-a Sing” will be held at 7:00.  Singing groups from other churches will be coming to sing and join in the service.  Refreshments will be served in the fellowship hall following the program.

 On Saturday evening at 5:30, a Harvest Festival will be held at the Picnic Shelter.  There will be games for the children and food for all.

 Volunteers who help with Faith Christian Ministries store were recently honored at a meal at Momeyer Baptist Church.  President Mary Jane Perry recapped the history of FCM and recognized those on the board.  She also recognized volunteers from each church.  Special recognition was given to Flora Ferrell who works there, everyday that it is open.

 JoAnn Blankenship recently spent the week-end in Roxboro with Mavis Brantley Ashley.  It was the annual reunion of the “Lucky Thirteen”-high school classmates.  They assisted Mavis with setting up the luminaries for the cancer fund raiser-Relay for Life.

 Catherine Gupton recently spent some times in the mountains visiting her cousins, David and Clara Inscoe.  While there they celebrated the birthdays of her Uncle Willard Inscoe {92} and Aunt Idalene Marshall{98}.

 Travis Griffin, the son of Sue and the late Ben Griffin, has recently been critically ill.

Sue traveled down to his home in Florida to be with him and his family.  He is now in recovery but Sue repots that he is still having great difficulty.  Our prayers are with him and the others who are on the prayer list.
Our prayer concerns include: Rich Blanchard who is recovering from his injuries received in an accident;  Ozelle Edwards, back home and recovering from pneumonia; Della May, who spent time at Nash General last week; Mazie Weaver, who remains at Franklin Regional; Jeannie Bennett fighting a severe cold.  Remember our shut-ins and those men and women serving with the military in harm’s way.  Remember also our veterans who are suffering the wounds of war.
