Blessing in God’s time
This will be a very exciting week in the life of the Centennial Student Ministry! Through much prayer and countless hours of volunteer labor, we will finally have our first Wednesday Night Rock (WNR) service in our new facility this Wednesday, March 27th. God has blessed us with an incredible state of the art youth center that will be used as a tool to reach students with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have envisioned this building in our hearts and minds for almost three years now, and to finally begin our weekly meetings in our new permanent facility is nothing short of a miracle of God! If you are a middle or high school student and are not actively involved in a youth ministry, I would like to personally invite you to our WNR services every Wednesday at 6:30 pm. You will find other students with your age and interests, and enjoy some good food, fellowship, crazy games, and relevant life applicable preaching.
God continues to bless the Student Ministry of Centennial Baptist Church and I am deeply blessed to be able to serve in a place where the congregation understands the value of investing in its future. We have been blessed with a new facility. Let us not take for granted the opportunity to tell our lost friends about the saving power of our Lord Jesus Christ. A beggar that finds bread will tell another beggar where he found it! Hope to see you this Wednesday as we begin a new sermon series from the book of Joshua entitled, "Blessings Through Obedience"……. #WNR
Wrestling planned for Old Buckhead Days April 6
Congratulations to River Rodgers in earning his green belt in karate last Saturday.
I had not talked to Judy Rodgers in a while. I found out that her nephew in Tennessee Shawn Blade passed away in early January. I send my most sincere sympathy to Judy and family.
Shane Dominy passed away recently. He was a young 36 year old man had a massive heart attack in his log truck at work. He was the only living child of “Dink” and Sandra Dominy. They lived at Greensboro but I understand that there were relatives here in Morgan County. His late grandparents wee from here. Dennis and Julie Godbee were very good fiends of the family. I send my sympathy to all of you at this sad time.
The Swords Community Church is having very good Sundays school lessons each Sunday that is being taught by the pastor. This is the Swords United Methodist Church. You are invited to attend.

Columnist: March seems to be “Going out like a lion!”
It is really March weather out there today; well, it really started last night with the wind howling and carrying on and today it is still going strong. I think it is going to be a rough week, weather-wise. It would be great if this is the last hurrah of winter! With Easter coming early, maybe it is, and maybe it will be pretty for Easter weekend. You take the bad with the good.
All of my family had a big weekend as Bertie and Leon Alligood from Lebanon, Tenn. came down and then on Sunday, Tim, Cathy, and Kacey Wilson from Roswell came down and spent the day. This was Cathy's last visit with us before they fly off to their new home in Belgium, but Tim and Kacey are hoping to come down for another visit or two as she will be out of school from Easter weekend on until they get settled overseas. Since they were all going to be at Mama and Daddy's, we had a mini- family reunion with the Wilson side, which was long overdue. Marty barbecued a pig and Mark made a pot of his wonderful Brunswick stew and along with side dishes and desserts, we had a wonderful Sunday lunch of food and also some good fellowship. Harriette Wade, Sally and Tony Stephens, Sandra and Jerry Brown and Chic and Laurie Lewis were all able to come. Aunt Harriette is doing good and she looked like a million dollars and certainly not 94 years old as she will soon be in April! She and Daddy are both a wonder and a blessing. Blanche Wilson doesn't look her age either, as she will celebrate another birthday on Wednesday of this week.
