Greenfield Presbyterian Church hosts Father’s Day breakfast
Sunday, June 18, after a wonderful Father’s Day breakfast, Greenfield Presbyterian Church started its day encouraging the fathers of our congregation to continue their good works throughout the community and in their homes.
In the youth Sunday School class, the young men were asked to write letters of encouragement to their fathers. Ontario Fitts, Marquis Johnson and Nmele George all wrote beautiful letters based on 2 Corinthians 5:6-17. Pastor George preached a wonderful message from Mark 4:26-34 and Elder Patience George and Min. Evelyn Elliott paid tribute to fathers.
Prayers were offered for those who lost loved ones, as Elmira Curry, nephew Levan Miller and niece Annie Pearl Walls traveled to Indianapolis, Ind. to the homecoming celebration of Chester L. Miller. Mr. Miller was the brother of Levan and Ann and nephew to Elmira Curry.
We also offer prayers of condolences to the families of Bro. James Adams and Bro. Roosevelt Echols.
The Waterford community enjoyed many of its original family members this weekend; some for the funeral of Bro. Adams and some just visiting. Robert and Delois Plaxico had two of their daughters, Erma of Chicago and Sharon of Atlanta, several grandchildren and Angela, the granddaughter of the late Roy and Lela Jeffries, visiting this weekend. Their son Chester and his family were also here, to bring their daughter down to the University of Mississippi.
Elcue and Elmira Curry were honored to have their son Calvin Walker, his wife, three of their children and their daughter Lorraine Walker, all from Dallas, Tx.
Walton and Greenfield churches shared a wonderful revival with Rev. Joe T. Lester of Isom Chapel as the guest speaker. Wilkins Chapel CME Church had three different speakers for their revival, Rev. Denise Modest of Anderson Chapel; Rev. Joseph Grantham; and Rev. A. Tyson of the Taylor community.
Just a note of thanks to all who helped with the Father’s Day breakfast and to all who work to ensure our church grounds are well-manicured.
We also appreciate Bro. Travis Coleman for helping keep our cemetery looking nice.
We encourage all who have loved ones buried here to not forget to stop in and help maintain the cemetery.
If you cannot come in and work, please send your contributions for upkeep to Greenfield Presbyterian Church, P.O. Box 122, Waterford, MS 38685.
