Sunday morning our attendance was down due to vacations, work, sickness and reunions. We hope all had a good day and will be back soon. Our visitors are always welcome. Our prayer is they all will receive a blessing when they come worship with us and we hope they will come back soon. We invite anyone that lives in or around our community and does not have a regular church home to come visit with us. The choir’s special Sunday was, “I Know Whom I Have Believed,” and another special, “Common Garments,” by Peggy Harper. Bro. Ron continued mini series message, “The Spiritual Man,” I Cor. 2.
The Morgan County Baptist Association annual meeting will be held Thursday, Sept. 26 at Buckhead Baptist Church, beginning at 4 p.m.
Operation Christmas Child items for September are washcloths, soap, solid deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes and floss. We are using standard size shoe boxes or the plastic shoe boxes are good also.
Margie Ward enjoyed visiting Betty Bailey and Lon Davis Tuesday afternoon.
Brenda McAdams visited Margie Ward Thursday night.
Sunday Lexi, Ray and Patsy James, Jimmy and Robin James, James Harold and Ellen Smith, John and Brenda McAdams attended the Davidson Family Reunion in Gainesville.
James Harold and Ellen Smith, Brenda McAdams and Margie Ward were among those visiting with the family and friends of Annette Wilkes Sunday night at Lord and Stephens West Funeral Home in Bogart.
Our Christian sympathy goes out to her family during this time. Mrs. Annette was a special lady. She went with us on several of our senior trips at Brownwood. To know her was to love her. She will be missed by all that knew her.
Home is the chief school of human virtues.
Home is the sweetest type of heaven.
A home is a house with a heart inside.
The church can preach, the school can teach, but the home must convert sermons and lessons into the way of life.
The nation can be no stranger than its homes.
Home is more than four walls; home is where affection calls.
Home is a place where the great are small and the small are great.
A husband who shops with his wife is a wait-watcher.
Don’t treat your home like a pit stop on the raceway of life.
A family altar would alter many a family.
The right temperature at home is maintained by warm hearts, not by hot heads.
A broken home is the world’s greatest wreck.
The most important things in your home are people.
Yelling at children is not the way to make the home a howling success.
A house is built by hands but a home is built by hearts.
To train up children at home it is necessary for the parents and children to spend some time at home.
Children may tear up a house but they never tear up the home.
Be reasonable, don’t expect your youngsters to listen to your advice and ignore your example.
Every person should have three homes: a Christian home, a church home and a home in heaven.
A small house will hold as much happiness as a mansion.
Our home should face the Father’s house.
King or peasant, the happiest place is still the home.
Pray for America.
