Many thanks to everyone who stepped up to help with Community Table. We saw a different set of faces in the kitchen and dining room that night. The buttery, hot, gooey ham and cheese sandwiches and creamy potato soup was wonderful.
We are looking forward to recognizing the Boy Scouts this Sunday.
Ash Wednesday services will be at 6:00 P.M. on February 14 and no Administrative Council meeting will be held.
Our church office will be closed on Monday, February 19 for President’s Day.
Our congregation extends sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Elaine Haskell. Elaine lived in Midland and was the last surviving sister of Ray LaBaume.
Stormy Armstrong will be taking her mother, Pat Humphries, into the doctor’s office for minor surgery. We pray all goes well for Pat because no surgery is minor when you are 89 years old.
Leta Sage told us that her sister-in-law, Louise, and brother Frank Sharp, will travel to Denver, Colorado to the National Jewish Hospital in hopes of getting treatment for Louise.
Liam Cisneros, grandson of Pat and Lisa Leatherwood has the flu again.
Mac McKinnon is still high on our prayer list, he has been facing one difficulty after another.
The Dublin Lions basketball team is playing well and fun to watch. They play home games on Tuesday nights.
Kevin Stone was pleased to announce he will be a grandfather in September. We needed some positive news!
D. J. Klutts served as Worship Leader and Pat Leatherwood delivered the sermon while Rev. Ken Lunsford recovers from the flu.
Pat Leatherwood spoke about the stress of our modern society. Most of our ills are due to the fast pace we all keep. He also said we worry too much about things we cannot control. In Philippians 4:6-7 Paul says “Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
We concern ourselves about water pollution and air pollution, but the worst type of pollution is the things we allow to enter our minds!
Thank God in all things, not for all things. Be content with what you have right now instead reaching for more or better. Remember both hands can’t catch the wind.
