Thanksgiving is a special time of the year for our country to thank God for the many blessings He has given us. Many families will be traveling home and sitting down to a traditional family dinner of turkey or ham with all the trimmings.

Some less fortunate families may be expecting little or no dinners. As photos show, such families in our area will enjoy a bountiful Thanksgiving dinner.  Last Saturday folks at Society Baptist delivered boxes of groceries for a traditional turkey or ham dinner with all the trimmings to families of need in the area.

Whatever your Thanksgiving plans are, here’s wishing everyone a safe and enjoyable time. Let’s give thanks to God for the many, many blessings He has given us (Psalms 92: 1-3 and I Thes. 5:18).

Society Baptist will not have church service Wednesday night, Nov. 22.

The seventh of the 12-week Bible study for women at Clarksbury Methodist Church will not meet until January 2024.

Upcoming community events: breakfast with Santa at Clarksbury Methodist at 8 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 2; country ham and sausage breakfast sponsored by the V-Point Ruritans from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 6.

Caroline Jones and Caleb Williams continue their medical treatments. Caroline’s fracture has healed enough that she returned home from the hospital last Thursday. Hazel Smoot has improved and is recuperating at home. Mildred Beck 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 the above residents and others who are having health problems.  Continue to pray for the Lord’s guidance as Caleb’s parents Perry and Vickie seek other possible medical treatments for Caleb.

Remember in prayer Curtis & Retha Gaither and Denise York Cline. Retha’s brother Lawrence Cranfill died Tuesday of last week at Forsyth Medical Center.  Denise’s husband Bob died Sunday of last week after a long illness.

Word has been received of the death of Jack W. McLaughlin, formerly of Ridge Road and Sunflower Road. Nicholson Funeral Home of Statesville is serving the family.  Remember the family in prayer.
