Don’t forget to remember your mother on Sunday, Mother’s Day
By Mae Buice
Crowds were good and the weather beautiful Sunday with guests in the congregation Lou gave a beautiful sermon on Regenerated, taking his sermon from John 3: 3.
In the last days there will be perilous times. People will become lovers of themselves. We’re living in a time where we need to step up to the plate, there’s got to be a change. We need to hold on and walk in Christ’s footsteps. He does promise us eternal life.
Get yourself regenerated, turn from evil ways and live for Christ. Always be able to know and relate to John 3: 16.
When we get saved we get regenerated. You shed the old man, put on the new man and become a new creature in Christ. If your outward appearance has not changed, creating a new life with a spiritual heart, get regenerated by being saved. Those of God cannot make sin a habit in your life if you’ve been regenerated. You are not and cannot be the same person as before. We were glad to see Richard Riffle along with his parents in the congregation. Richard is preparing to go to Alaska, then back to Iraq. Certainly our prayers go with him as he makes his preparations. There was a huge barbecue in Barby and Richard’s honor held Saturday.
On Sunday afternoon at 6 p.m. there was a beautiful wedding. Lisa Irene Coker became the bride of Bobby Derrill Allen in a double ring ceremony. Her attendants were Lynn Malcom and Cindy Marrow. Rusty Johnson and B. J. Allen, son of the groom, were Bobby’s attendants. Our own little Darlin’ Lilly was the flower girl. The ceremony was performed by the pastor of Sugar Creek, Lou Comans. Lisa is the daughter of Danny and Beulah Coker. Bobby is the son of Mrs. Jane Allen of Greensboro. Bobby and Lisa will make their home in Greensboro.
Don’t forget all that are fortunate enough to still have your mother remember her on her special day this coming Sunday. If you do plan to go to church with your Mom and spend extra time with her making her day special.
Sunday, the 18, we will have a baby dedication. Little Miss MacKenzie Alisa Morris will be dedicated to God. Her parents, Nicole and Brandon and all her loving relatives will witness this blessed occasion. Also, on this day we will have Senior Recognition, recognizing Tyler Ward and John Lawson as our up-coming seniors.
James and I enjoyed the singing at Crawfordville Auction Barn on Friday night where we heard special guests, the Clarke Kesler Singers from Nicholson. Also, singing was the Southern Melody Boys. Next month on June 6 the Lanier Land Boys will be in concert. Mahlon Merck is the leader of this group and was at one time sang tenor for the Sunny South Quartet.
Plans are being made for the last AWANA meeting, which will be on May 14. Also plans are underway for our Vacation Bible School to be held June 22.
Don’t forget the next “Community Sing,” held at Grace Bible Church on the 22. If you’ve never attended you’ve missed a blessing.
Happy birthday to Alyssa Waddell on the 7, Leigh Sears and Nicole Morris on the 9, Brandon Morris on the 14 and Dylan Stewart on the 15.
