Women of the Church

The Women of the Church met Tuesday, March 12 and will meet again Tuesday, April 9 at 10 am. All women are welcome and encouraged to come.

We have prayer shawls available. Let us know if you know of anyone who needs one.

Session approved for us to put flowers in the windows of the Church. Rev. Elam’s family supplied the flowers and they make the Church look spring like. Audrey Smith and Grace Lowe decorated the windows.

We received Thank You notes from the Battered Women’s Shelter for the items we collected. Grace & I visited the Battered Women’s shelter to take donations. Needed are trash bags (13 gal), paper towels, regular bed pillows and twin size sheets. Any and all donations are appreciated.

We helped with tea and desserts for the Chili Cook-off and Baked Potato & Salad bar for the Youth to raise money.

Sylvia McDaniel sends cards to sick & shut-ins. If you have extra card, please let Grace or I know.

We are having a hard time getting prices and times Easter Lilies are available this year. Garden Greenhouse gave us a price for Geraniums in white, red or pink ($7.00 with basket.)
Please, give us your input. Would you rather stay with lilies and bring your own OR would you like to do Geraniums this year???

 It’s Strange …

* It’s strange how twenty dollars seems like such a large amount when you donate it to the Church, but such a small amount when you are shopping.
* It’s strange how 2 hours seem so long when you’re at church, and how short they seem when you’re watching a good movie.
* It’s strange that you can’t find words to say when you’re praying, but you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend.
* It’s strange how difficult it is to read one chapter of the Bible, but how easy it is to read a popular novel.
* It’s strange how everyone wants a front-row-ticket to concerts, but they want to sit in the last row at Church.
* It’s strange how we need to know about an event for Church 2-3 weeks before the day so we can include it in our agenda, but we can adjust it for other events at the last minute.
* It’s strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God and share it with others, but it’s easy to report gossip.
*It’s strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say, but we question the words in the Bible?

Recently your Cemetery Sub-committee received a request from two members of the church congregation to consider the future construction and installation of a small columbarium to be placed within the cemetery to offer an alternate interment method for cremations in addition to traditional in-ground burial.  Your Sub-committee members and Session are very interested in additional comments from our members to this proposal.  Any thoughts, suggestions, or ideas are appreciated and can be shared with any member of the Cemetery Sub-Committee or Session.  Thanks in advance - we look forward to hearing from YOU!
