People of all ages got in the pool to swim and folks of all ages sat and visited with each other. There was a large group of men and boys in the pool playing a game with a ball; maybe it was water polo.
We listened to some Christian Rock music recorded by Joseph Cisneroz and others from Deleon. I thought it was a professional group till someone told me it was Joseph. Joseph is the son-in-law of Pat and Lisa Leatherwood.
Pastor Ken Lunsford of Dublin and Pastor Judy Richmond of Deleon were shaking a lot of hands and grinning ear to ear, and with good reason. This was one of the most successful “small church projects” I have ever been to. Praise the Lord.
6-29 was a fifth Sunday Singing. We called out our favorite hymns and sang instead of hearing preaching. The service was followed by a covered dish dinner. We enjoyed many good things from the garden.
After the dinner there was a Vacation Bible School decorating work session. Our fellowship hall is looking like outer space. Laura Leatherwood directed the work and Jimmy Leatherwood brought us a tall ladder to use. We have the sun, moon, stars, and planets floating from the ceiling. All we need now is lots and lots of children to come and learn about their Lord and Savior.
It was announced that Kathy Logan and her brother, Carl B. Sanders, have gone to Kansas to see their sister, June Trice. June is very ill and asked the family to come. We will keep them all in our prayers.
The congregation extends sincere sympathy to the family of Emma Cortez. Emma is the mother of Sarah Button.
Doris Morton had a trip to the hospital, but she is back home and doing ok.
For Children’s Time, Laura Leatherwood brought a jar of jelly beans to show the youngsters. She asked the children to guess how many sweet beans were in the jar. No one got even close, but Laura said there is someone who would always know. She said God knows how many hairs we have on our head, He knows how we are doing. He watches over the little sparrow birds and He watches over you and me.
Laura gave out a few jelly beans to eat to the children, but she did not want to spoil their dinner.
The scripture read was from Romans 6:12 – 23. Verse 23 says the wages that sin pays are death, but God’s gift is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
