We thank you all for every act of kindness shown to us during this time. Words cannot begin to express our gratitude to you. Your caring and sharing has brought much comfort A POEM Aa) OPINION By M. Rosser Lunsford (Poet Laureate Putnam County) Ups And Downs My many years chill the best in me yet they tempt the man I used to be, this I accept for such is life, 'a sharp blade or a rusty knife'... Every day has its ups and downs, such it is with tears and clowns, I feel ashamed when I dwell on me rather than the awesome things I see... Each year I feel the sting of time and m y mind hears a chapel chime, I know not what I'll have to fight only that I've more poetry to write. Sunday School is at 10 a.m. At the 11 o'clock worship service Rev. Prescott's message was.taken from Job 13:15, 16, 17; Job 1:2-22. 1. Job was the greatest man of the east. 2. Satan tempted Job. 3. Job feared God. 4. In all these sinneth not, nor charged God fearfully. We had twelve visitors. The Sunday night service was can- celled. Dedication service of the fellow- ship hall was held at 2 p.m. with preaching and singing. The dedica- tion sermon was taken from Psalms 122. I was glad when they said, "Let us go into the house of the Lord." Psalms 124: 1, 2, 3, 8. Our help is in the name of the Lord who made heaven and the earth. Psalms 126: 1- 6, the Lord has done great things for us whereof we are glad. Psalms 127:1, except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain that build it. Mr. Curtis Arrington was the guest speaker for the dedication. He prayed the closing prayer with members join- ing him praising GOd for what He has done for us. Wednesday night prayer service is at 7 p.m. "We, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness," 2 Peter 3:13. Because the reality of the new heaven and new earth is certain, we mustbe faithful toobeyChrist's word. As we dedicate ourselves to Him, God will reward us for all our faith- fulness. The redeemed will live with GOd forever. Sunday morning Bro, Hill's text was from Matthew 17:14-21; 13:31. Sunday evening our youth of the church were in charge of the service. Jeremy Royster brought the word from Jeremiah 1:1-8, "Don't let your age get between you and God." Happy birthday wishes to Joel Richardson. Friday night Judy Thomaston, Mable Williamson and myself at- tended service at the First Assembly of God in LaGrange for their minis- tering unto women service with speaker Jelaine Foreman from Rayne, La. Mable Williamson was honored with a birthday dinner at her home Sunday afternoon. Saturday evening our youth en- joyed an outing to Hollywood con- nection in Columbus. A Guide That Never Falters There is a guide that never falters, Amidst the storms of doubt and fears-- For He has walked the way before thee, And He knows the path you see; His feet have trod the rugged hill- sides, And the valleys of despair-- His life has paved the way to heaven, Never fear, He'll guide you there; His soul has tasted mortal anguish, His eyes have felt the sting of tears, He's a timely guide, a sympatheti c Savior, So, trust to Him your future years. ---Elizabeth E.S.
