Waterford Lodge Hall setting for black history program
Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose trust is in the Lord. They shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the years of drought it is not anxious and it does not cease to bear fruit. Jeremiah 17:7-8
Let us look where God has brought us from. Let us start the new year off right and get in church service somewhere this year, whether it is a church of choice, let us give service while we have a home today, because tomorrow is unborn.
Our prayers go out to the families of the late Ozella Moore and Adolph (Ben) Ingram. Pray for the sick and shut-ins.
