The V-Point Ruritans appreciated everyone’s support of their successful breakfast Saturday and look forward to seeing everyone in February.

The eighth of the 12-week Bible study for women at Clarksbury Methodist will be Jan. 14 at 6 p.m. about the “bent woman” of the Bible whom Jesus healed on Sunday as referenced in Luke 13: 10-17.  Everyone is invited.

The Young at Heart of Society Baptist will meet at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 16. The group invites senior adults in the community.

Society Baptist is extending the Wednesday evening services. While the youth will still have study from 7-7:45 p.m. and the adults will have prayer and Bible study at 7, there will be a new class from 7-7:30 for children ages Pre-K-6th grade for learning about local and international missions. Church members invite everyone.

Upcoming community events: Missions Sunday at 11 a.m. worship Jan. 28 at Society Baptist; country ham and sausage breakfast by the V-Point Ruritans from 7-10 a.m. Feb. 3.   

Our community extends sympathy to the family of David Eugene Warren, who died Monday of last week at Novant Presbyterian Medical Center of Charlotte after an extended illness. One of four children, he was born in Alexander County in 1942 to the late Willie Adams Warren and Melvina Thompson White and attended Alexander County Schools. In 2004 David married Caroll Elliott of Iredell County.  The couple settled on Shaw Road off Rimrock Road.  Retired from Keever Heating and Air of Taylorsville, David enjoyed spending time with family including his four children. A country fellow at heart, he loved anything country but especially country music.

For the past several years, David and Caroll faithfully attended Calvary Baptist and were active in all areas of service. A service celebrating his life will be held at 3 p.m. Jan. 13 at the church.  There will be no formal visitation.

We send get-well wishes to Shirley Prather Lewis, who fell and broke her femur bone and is in rehab at Bermuda Village of Davie.  Ann C. Cline has improved and is recuperating at home. Caleb Williams has begun immunotherapy treatments at Brenner Children’s Hospital and Caroline M. Jones is preparing for her radiation treatments at Chapel Hill.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Shirley, Ann, Caleb, Caroline, and others who are having health problems. Pray for the Lord’s comfort and support upon the family of David as they deeply miss him in life.

Remember in prayer Johnny and Cheryl Taylor and Joyce C. Dobson.  Johnny’s brother Buddy Gene Taylor of Harmony died Friday, Dec. 29. Joyce’s brother-in-law Wayne Dobson died Wednesday, Dec. 27 at home in Union Grove.  Continue to pray for those who are affected by the flu, Covid, and respiratory virus that is sprevalent.
