“SKY”-themed Vacation Bible School kicked off Sunday
Our attendance was good on Sunday morning for worship service. We missed all the members that were not with us, we pray for the ones that are sick or have family members that are not feeling well. We miss each one of you and hope you will be back with us soon. We were blessed to have several visitors Sunday and it was good to see all of them. We hope you were blessed and encouraged by being with us and will come whenever you can and worship with us again. You are always welcome. The choir’s special was, “Victory in Jesus.” Bro. Ron’s message was, “Spreading the Gospel,” using scriptures Isaiah 6:1-8, Luke 16: 19-31, I Cor. 9: 16 and Acts 16: 6-10. As members of the Body of Christ, God is calling each one of us to spread the Gospel, which is the good news about Jesus. There are people out there, all around us, everywhere we go waiting for someone to tell them about Jesus. We need to be aware of the opportunities we have each day to witness to someone. We should set our affection on things above, God tells us He will never leave us nor forsake us. People who are lost must know someone cares for them and see their need for Jesus. Rom.3: 23, Rom 6:23 and Rom 10:13. Once you’ve experienced forgiveness you can forgive. We need to sow all the seed we can and pray they will take root and not fall by the way side.
Brownwood’s Vacation Bible School started Sunday night at 6 p.m. The theme this year is SKY. The church was all decorated and the children were all excited. I don’t have a count as to how many children attended. The teachers and workers will have a busy week. Our director Christy Brown has done a very good job getting this whole thing together.
Next Saturday morning, June 9 at 10 a.m. the Brownwood Women’s Ministry will meet at the Brownwood Community Building. All ladies and daughters are urged to attend and to bring finger food or a favorite dish.
Items to bring for Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes for June are stickers, balloons, flashlights, extra batteries, sunglasses, coloring books, etc. Items need to fit in a regular-size shoe box.
James Harold, Ellen Smith and Margie Ward visited Florine Ward at Chaplin Wood Nursing Home in Milledgeville Wednesday afternoon.
Saturday afternoon Margie Ward, Julie Phillips, Rachel and Zach Wood attended the fourth birthday party for Charles Grady Oliver at his home. Charles Grady is my oldest great-grandson. The theme of the party was “Knight”. A large crowd of friends and family attended. Everyone enjoyed seeing all the children and some adults on the inflatable bouncer, as well as enjoying drinks, snacks, cake and ice cream together.
Sonny, Mary, Rebekah, Rachel and Zach Wood, Julie and Billy Phillips had dinner Sunday with Margie Ward. We celebrated Rachel’s eighth birthday, which was June 4.
TO ANY DADDY
To Any Daddy
There are little eyes upon you,
And they’re watching day by day.
There are little ears that surely
Take in every word you say.
There are little hands all eager
To do everything you do.
There’s a little boy who’s dreaming
Of the day he’ll be like you!
You’re that little fellow’s idol,
You’re the wisest of the wise,
In his little mind, about you
No suspicions ever arise;
He believes in you devoutly,
Holds that all you say or do
He will say and do in you way
When he’s all grown up like you.
There’s a wide-eyed little fellow
Who believes you’re always right;
His keen ears are always open
To catch your words day or night.
You are setting an example,
Everyday in all you do,
For the little boy whose wanting
To grow up to be like you.

Father’s Day is coming up in a couple of weeks; I thought this would fit right in. Have a Blessed Week!
