It’s a busy time in County Line with college graduations, Memorial Day celebrations in a week, and end of public-school year about two weeks away. Here’s hoping all students have had a successful school year.

Society Baptist Church will host a gospel singing at 6 p.m. Sunday, May 22 with “The Swordsmen.” A love offering will be taken.  Church members invite everyone to join them for this special worship service of favored songs.

The quilt ministry of Society Baptist will meet at 9 a.m. Wednesday, May 25, in the fellowship hall.  The group invites others interested in quilting.

Remember the Society Baptist women’s Bible study today (Thursday) at 7 p.m. in the fellowship hall.  The study will be “Hannah:  Surrendering in Waiting.”  The group invites others.

Upcoming community events include “Cruise-In” beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 4 at Piney Grove AME Zion Church.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Carol Henderson Johnson, who was to have outpatient hand surgery yesterday (Wednesday). Lucille Beck remains in rehab at Iredell Memorial Hospital. Joetta M. Snow has been recuperating at home since Tuesday of last week. Donald Turner has been recuperating at home since Monday of last week.  Cathy B. Foster has improved from her back surgery and is recuperating at home. Rayford “Tink” McDaniel continues to rest at home with palliative care. Tommie Ross and Alice Waugh remain in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Carol, Lucille, Joetta, Donald, Cathy, Tink, Tommie, Alice, and others who are having health problems.  Pray for those families affected by the mass shootings last weekend in Buffalo, N.Y., and in Houston, Calif. Remember in prayer the citizens of Ukraine. Pray for those affected by covid-19 and its variants.
