Greenfield celebrates Calendar Drive May 28
Proverbs 31:10: A capable wife (mother) who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. This was the theme for the Mother’s Day Banquet at the Greenfield Presbyterian Church on Saturday, May 13. This beautiful hymn set the tone for a service honoring 11 wonderful mothers who were selected and recognized because of their mighty feats of valor. As our narrator Anita Moore read each honoree profile, it was obvious why these mothers were selected. Their labor went far and beyond their own household gate and they blessed not only their family but the community as well.
Howard Thurman wrote it is our great and blessed fortune that our lives are never left to themselves alone. We are visited in ways that we can understand and in ways that are beyond our understanding by highlights, great moments of inspiration, quiet reassurance of grace, and simple manifestations of gratuitous expressions of the goodness of life. These quiet things enrich the common life and give ordinary experiences of our daily grind a significance and a strength that steady and inspire. We are also surrounded by the witness of those others whose striving has made possible so much upon which we draw from the common reservoir of our heritage, those who have carried the light against the darkness, those who have persevered when perseverance seemed idiotic and suicidal, those who have forgotten themselves in the full and creative response to something that calls them beyond the furthest reaches of their dreams and their hopes.
The above saying is more than fitting as we (Greenfield Presbyterian Church family) say thank you to everyone who helped us provide our honorees with a token of love for parental guidance. Each family was well represented and the food was good. As we begin to plan for our next honors banquet we invite your suggestions and help.
As we continue to remember God’s hope and intent for life, we do so by letting you know that the Hamilton Chapel Church family will celebrate its Men and Women’s Day on Sunday, May 21 at 3 p.m.; everyone is invited to come and be a part of this program. Also the Walton Chapel Church family will honor their pastor and wife with a Love Day on Sunday, May 21 at 3 p.m., according to the Scripture (1 Timothy 5:17-18).
The Greenfield Presbyterian Church family will celebrate their annual Calendar Drive on Sunday, May 28 at 3 p.m. We invite all of you to come and share this day with us. Thank you for your support as we continue to lift up the name of Jesus.
The Bible says to train up a child the way he should go and when he grows up he will not depart from that training (paraphrased) and this is certainly true when it comes to Bro. Willie Glen Walton. Glen, as he is known to us, often comes back to Waterford and visits all of the elderly in the community and Mother’s Day was no exception. We appreciate how Glen has not forgotten the community and us. Glen, we love you and thank God for your regular visits.
