The V-Point Ruritans will host a country ham and sausage breakfast on Saturday, Feb. 4 from 7-10 a.m. at the V-Point Building on Old Mocksville Road about .3 mile from NC 901, eat in or take out. Proceeds benefit community projects.

The Baptist Men of Society will meet at 7 a.m. Saturday. The men invite others for breakfast and prayer. They will discuss future projects and community needs and plan to work at the church after breakfast.

The Women on Missions of Society Baptist will not meet during February.

Clarksbury United Methodist Church will host a new Bible study meeting led by Angie Revels at 6 p.m. on Sundays.  The first meeting will be Sunday, Feb. 5.

Our community extends sympathy to the family of Brittany VanHoy Moore;  who died Saturday, Jan. 21 at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center after being hospitalized for a few days.

The older of two children, she was born in Iredell County in 1986 to Clint and Dee Daniels VanHoy.  In her youth she attended Calvary Baptist Church with her family and was an active member. She also enjoyed spending time with her Grandpa Jim and Grandma Sadie Daniels on Campground Road.

In 2004 she graduated from North Iredell High School, where she enjoyed cheerleading for the Raiders. She continued her education by graduating with honors from UNC-Greensboro with a degree in business administration and enjoyed a professional career in business and account management.

Brittany married Arron Moore in 2015;  the couple made their home on Union Grove Road in Union Grove and were rearing their young children Daniel and Violet. The couple joined in worship at Union Grove United Methodist Church, where she coordinated the infant and toddler nurseries.

In life she faced adult congenital heart disease but never let that dampen her enthusiasm for enjoying life.  Kind and caring, she was especially devoted to her two little children and loved spending time with family and friends.

A service celebrating her life was held Saturday afternoon of last week at Union Grove United Methodist Church.  She was laid to rest in the church cemetery.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Gary Hanlin, Cherie Ramsey, and Darlene Holland Rivers.  Gary recently moved from Battle Road off US 64 West to West Virginia and has been hospitalized there with breathing problems. Cherie has been at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. Darlene has been at Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital in Elkin. Alice C. Waugh remains at Forsyth Medical Center. Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Gary, Cherie, Darlene, Alice, and other residents who are having health problems. Pray for the Lord’s blessings and strength upon the family of Brittany as they deeply miss her in life.

Remember in prayer Joyce Evans Martin and family;  her husband David Wayne Martin was director of emergency management for Iredell County and died at home Saturday, Jan. 21 after a period of declining health.  Joyce is a daughter of the late Fred and Peggy Wooten Evans of Vaughn Mill Road.
