Lifelong dream of Elder Elcue Curry comes to pass
“A historical event for Greenfield Presbyterian Church of Waterford”
Psalm 133 says, “How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity.” This is certainly true for our family and the organization to which I belong. We were pleased to have my daughter Regina Curry and granddaughter Sharonda Blake visit us on the weekend of Easter. The family enjoyed good times and good food during their visit.
And the theme of unity continued to flow, Bathsheba Grand Chapter and the Order of Eastern Star (Sunrise Chapter #166) welcomed District officers to their humble Lodge Hall on Sat., April 22. The devotion was done by the Order with the opening song, “This Little Light of Mine.” Rev. Wilson Reynolds read the Scripture and led the Order in prayer. Sis. Earlene Jeffries welcomed the group and Bro. William Hollowell welcomed the community. The response was given by a sister from Bright Light No. 197 and after another song, the meeting was led by District Deputy Bro. William Austin.
The spirit of unity also served our congregation on Sun. as Minister Evelyn Elliott led Greenfield in the Second Sunday of Easter service. The message was taken from John 20:19-31, the message was “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.” The women of the church provided the music and our pastor and wife, who were away on a retreat at Lake Tiak-O’Khata joined the service and the pastor was pleased to hear the young women participating in the worship service. We thank God for the messenger and for traveling grace and mercy extended to Pastor and Mrs. George. In Pastor George’s greeting, he stated how pleased he was to have had the opportunity to visit such a beautiful place and he reminded the congregation of the planned meeting of the Presbytery on Tues., May 2.
Thus, we have the Psalm of unity once again as our guide. The Presbytery of St. Andrew will hold its spring stated meeting at Greenfield Presbyterian Church in Waterford. The lifelong dream of Elder Elcue Curry is coming to pass and this will be the first time that St. Andrew has come to Waterford for a stated meeting. As history unites the many different churches of St. Andrew, Greenfield Session, pastor and members welcome everyone to this historical event. A church that is known for its fellowship to all people will open its doors with radical gratitude to God’s people as early as 8:30 a.m. Elder Curry had a dream and Thurman once wrote, “As long as a man has a dream in his heart he cannot lose the significance of living. Therefore, the beginning of each day is an opportunity for us to practice radical gratitude and dream the dream in our heart.
Intended for April 30, 2006
