Get ready to roll your clocks back for daylight saving time
Congratulations to Elise Coberly for being chosen as the athlete of the year in Madison County in her championship basketball playing. Recently she was recognized in the Athens Banner Herald. She had scored 1000 points before the end of the season. Madison County won the 4A Basketball Tournament, thanks to the wonderful playing that Elise did. All of the family is so pleased that she is such a hard working talented young woman. You all really have every reason to be overjoyed! May this playing take her even further!
The Buckhead Baptist Church will have a missionary to Alaska next Sunday. Make your plans to attend and hear this interesting missionary.
Last week the Buckhead Baptist Church had a group called “Gateway to Heaven.” They were very much enjoyed.
Carol Hilsman has been in the hospital in Athens where
she had surgery.
There has been a lot of sickness in the area churches. It has been very hard to get over. We have not had it so far I am so thankful.
Steve Bryant recently had shoulder surgery. Jo Ann had eye surgery. This week Jo Ann will have foot surgery. I hope that both of you will soon be through with surgeries.
The Buckhead Baptist Church will have their Easter Sunday morning. Then they will have a cantata, “It is Finished.” Communion will be observed following this. There will be no evening service.
Daylight saving time begins March 10. We will get ready to change our clocks again.
Edna Smith tells me that the Seventh Day Adventist Church will have a health program with Mark Anthony on February 28 at 6 p.m. He will tell about vegetarian food and how to lower cholesterol. This will be a very interesting program. It is free so make your plans to attend. The church is located at 706 East Avenue. `
Once you are in your land of promise, it takes obedience to stay in it
Greetings from The Springs. Let me tell you this. I may be writing to you for a while. Willie Ann Johnson has something coming up so I will be helping her out for an extended period of time. Hopefully you will not get tired of me.
Church Cleanup Day is slated for Saturday, Mar. 16 from, 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Now this will be at the old church and all members are asked to come out and help. The old campus is just as important as the new one so let’s do what we need to do.
Wednesday Night Bible study’s focus was on the Book of Ruth. Although it is short in length, this book is powerful. Pastor Terrell described it this way. Ruth was the only gleam of hope during the Dark Ages. That is also why Ruth comes after Judges. It is a love story of faith and hope during the trials of life.
We also examined the life of Melchizedek. Even though there is not an abundance written about him he is important as a “shadow and type” of Christ. He was a priest commemorated with bread and wine and was the king of Salem (which is also Jerusalem). In addition this man was tithed to by Abraham and he had an eternal priesthood that would last forever. Sounds like Jesus.
It is thought that Melchizedek was an angel or incarnation of Christ. The study of this man really lets a person realize that every person and everything in this Bible is there for a reason.
Pastor Terrell’s message for Sunday dealt with salvation of children. He started out by taking us to Romans 10, which begins with Paul praying that all of Israel will be saved.
Reach Outlet in Covington, a good place to haunt
Seems the weather is the hot topic lately. After a dreary rainy week Sunday was a beautiful day, especially if you chose to spend it with us. Our song service was a bit stronger and sounded so good. Thanks to all the visitors and those returning for more feeding. We pray you receive strong blessings being in the Lord's
house with us.
The choir special was "Last Mile of the Way", with specials also by our talented members. Butch brought his message from Psalm 51: 1-19, talking to us about David's prayer and a broken and contrite spirit. Contrite spirit means a crushed, bitterly bruised spirit. Read this complete chapter in Psalm. Let it speak to you.
On Sunday night Gene McCullough brought a message on love from John 3:16.
