Clarkbury United Methodist Church has begun a new Bible study on the Gospel of John at 7 p.m. on Thursdays. Pastor Cliff Wall is leading the study and invites anyone to join him in the church sanctuary or to watch live on the church Facebook page.

The Center-Salem/Davie United Methodist Charge began a Bible study Thursday of last week. The study meets at 7 p.m. each Thursday, met first at Center last week, and then will alternate between the two churches.  Pastor John Erwin is leading the study. For more information, please call 336-751-2754.

Our churches have these services scheduled this week, but contact the church for any updates: Clarksbury United Methodist and Piney Grove AME Zion, outdoor Sunday worship at 10 a.m.; Salem United Methodist, outdoor Sunday worship at 9:30 a.m. under the shelter; Calvary Baptist, outdoor Sunday worship at 11 a.m.; Pleasant View Baptist, regular services as usual; Society Baptist, inside Sunday worship at 11 a.m. in the fellowship hall; Wednesday night prayer and Bible study online at 7 p.m.

Our community extends its deepest sympathy to the family of Robert Lee Jones, who died Sunday of last week at Gordon Hospice House after several years of declining health. He was born in Alabama in 1953 to the late Vernon and Estelle Jones. He and his wife Wanda, whom he married in 1985, were co-owners of Diane’s Diner for several years and at that time made their home on US 64 just west of the South Yadkin River. He and Wanda, who died in April 2019, loved music and were active Moose Lodge members.

We send get-well wishes to James Barker and Betty Lou Richardson. James has been at Iredell Memorial Hospital. Betty Lou fell last week and broke her hip and wrist; she has been hospitalized at Iredell Memorial and is in rehab there. Becky Galliher and Ed Williams are recuperating at their respective homes after successful surgeries last week. Faye Stroud continues to rest at home while under treatment for cancer by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Bob Lewis continues to have in-home Hospice care.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon James, Betty Lou, Becky, Ed, Faye, Bob, and other residents who are having health problems. Remember in prayer the family of Robert as they adjust to life without him.                         .
