Samaritan House open Saturday
Last Tuesday night the Potts Camp Cardinals played their first home basketball game of the season against the Myrtle Hawks. The junior high boys and Lady Cardinals were victorious. The Cardinals played a hard game but lost by three points. They played at home again on Friday night and out of town on Saturday night. The Lady Cardinals won all three of their games. Coach is Tana Miller. The PC Cardinals are working hard and have improved from last year with players showing lots of hustle and leadership. Their coach is Shawn Holtz. Keep up the hard work, Cardinals!

From Rev. Don Newton’s sermon at Potts Camp United Methodist Church on Sunday: “O give thanks unto the Lord, call upon His name: make known His deeds among the people. Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him: talk of all His wondrous works. Glory in His holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord. Seek the Lord, and His strength: seek His face evermore. He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth.” Psalms 105: 1-4, 7.
