USBC is hosting a Women’s Luncheon Saturday, April 13 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. If you come to Bible Study Wednesday night you can still get your name on the list. Each event hosted by the Women’s ministry is uniquely different so come and expect something special.
When you see Minister Derrick and Sister Wintress Worrell congratulate them for being the winners of the Marriage Game, which was played at our last Couples’ Ministry meeting. We had a lovely evening as we celebrated and uplifted our marriages. There is a different topic or activity at each meeting and we all have a great time. The next gathering will be held Saturday, April 27 at 5 p.m. in the fellowship hall.
Don’t get tired of me saying this but we are still on “Spiritual Gifts” in Wednesday Bible study. Pastor Terrell explained that we would be on this subject for a while. Since so many of us are seeking to know what our gifts are he is taking time and going into detail to help us. His has been a very eye-opening series and there is still time for you to join us if you want to learn more.
Pastor Terrell’s message on Sunday came from St. Luke 14: 12-22 and he reviewed the story of the lost son. This son asked his father for “the portion of goods that falls to me,” and he went out into the world to end up spending it all. Not until “he came to himself, after considering eating the slop that pigs ate, that his heart was changed.
Buckhead Baptist bids Rev. adieu
This is a notice to all members of the Buckhead Baptist Church. Sunday is the last day that the Rev. and Mrs. (Sandra) Les Roberts will be at your church. There will be a covered dish dinner to follow the service. He has done a wonderful job in the Lord ministering to you. This is a way to show your appreciation.
Last Saturday night there was a meet and greet the Rev. Dennis and Sonya Gardner. He preached both services on Sunday. The church voted to call him as their pastor. He lives in Greensboro and will begin his ministry near May 1.
The Buckhead Road Race was a great success. There were 92 participating in a 3.1 mile long race. The first place winner was Zach Massey who ran it in 19.26 minutes. Congratulations, Zach! The fire department had food. There was music. There were games, a raffle, and other things. The money from the raffle went to the Tiller family who lost their house to a fire. The parade had tractors and old cars and lots of fun. I understand that people want to have a repeat of this event for next year. So that says to me that it was a day of fun and much success. Here’s to next year!

John and Gail Wade had their family for Easter. They all attended the Easter Cantata.
The cantata at the Buckhead Baptist Church was very wonderful. It was presented to a full house with chairs in the aisles. The Lord’s Supper was observed at the conclusion of the program.
Chuck and Miriam Foster had George and Laura Lohr and Pam Hendrix for Easter lunch.
Gail Wade has seen her first humming bird. My comment was, oh my, now for the snakes! I dread having to watch for the rattlesnakes like we had last year or any kind of snake!
The Easter egg hunt at the Buckhead Baptist Church turned out well with about 60 to 70 kids. Over 100 adults were present and were fed on Saturday at the Easter egg hunt. The ladies of the church were so appreciative of the youth that helped with all of the events. They did so well!
