The Golden Harvest of Calvary Baptist Church held their monthly meeting on Thursday, Sept. 20, with 21 members present.
Bennie Bullard, president, welcomed everyone and thanked Jayne Bullard for the room decorations. He, then, had the blessing for the covered dish meal.
Following the meal, Lois Sinclair had the devotion and used scripture from John 14:1-3. She titled her talk “Long Term Care.”
“God has provided us with the ‘best long care’ and it’s free if we only believe and trust in Him,” she said. “He has built for believers the most fabulous ‘Retirement Home’ there will ever be.”
She also stated that in Titus 1:1-4, Paul made it clear that “God does not lie and that God’s promise of eternal life is written in concrete.” She told them that as “one of God’s own,” they need not worry where they will spend eternity because their “longterm care” has already been taken care of. She ended with prayer.
Those having birthdays in September were Bennie Bullard, Bob Dixon, Jeanette Dochterman, Julia Lastinger, Virginia Bembry, and Betty Burdette. The only anniversary was Harold and Iris Bivins.
Jeanettte Dochterman read the minutes from the last meeting and gave the treasurer’s report.
Door prizes were won by Craige Plymel, Horace Thompson, and the Rev. Josh Myrick.
Bullard announced that Betty and Craige Plymel had invited the Golden Harvest group to their house for a fish-fry in November. He also stated that anyone who wanted to fish from Betty’s deck could do so.
