Greetings from the Wesley Smith Chapel Community. Happy Mother’s Day to each and everyone.
I pray that all mothers had a great weekend. Congratulations to all of the graduates far and near in 2019.
Our prayers and sympathy are with the family of the late James George, who was remembered at 2 p.m. Sunday in a funeral service at Cedar Point Church in Newton Grove. Majestic Funeral Home in Elizabethtown held the service.
St. Luke Church of Christ, 636 Waller Road, will host its Women’s Day service at 11 a.m. Sunday, May 19, with Elder Cynthia Barnes to deliver the message. The St. Luke choir will provide the music. I would like to say a special thank you to Dr. Gertie Stevens and the Whosoever Will Disciples of Christ Church’s choir, usher and congregation for rendering our Women’s Day service on the first Sunday this month.
