Our churches ihonored mothers in attendance last Sunday. Some presented a rose or plant or other token of appreciation to the mothers. At age 90, Marjorie Millsaps Cartner of Clarksbury Methodist was the oldest mother attending.

Weather permitting, the Baptist Men of Society plan to build a ramp for Jeff Thorne at his home on Ridge Road Saturday, May 20. Anyone wishing to help should be there at 8 a.m.  For more information, call John Nantz on 704-929-8199.

The quilting ministry of Society Baptist will meet at 9 a.m. Wednesday, May 24.  The group invites others interested in quilting.

Upcoming community events: country ham/sausage breakfast sponsored by the V-Point Ruritans from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, June 3, at the V-Point Building; and Father’s Day dinner hosted by Calvary Baptist at noon Sunday, June 11.

Barbara Evans remains in rehab at Iredell Memorial.  Alice Waugh remains in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Barbara, Alice, and others with health problems.  Remember in prayer the family of John Mark Wallace, who died last Sunday;  Mark was a son of the late former Society Baptist Pastor Irving and Evelyn York Wallace and nephew of Laverne Wallace Williams Sullivan of Ridge Road.

Please continue to pray for healing of injuries to my left leg and right wrist/forearm.  I still have a splint/cast on the latter and, hence, am unable to use my right arm most of the time.
