Jamestown Community Health Organization (JCHO) held its monthly meeting on the 12th at the home of LaRue Albritton of Jamestown. Plans for this year’s Memorial Day picnic were discussed. There will be more about the picnic after the information has been gathered.
Afterwards, president Rev. Pearl Andrews and the committee, along with several from Jamestown, busied themselves with cleaning the Dickens Cemetery. President Andrews thanks everyone for a job well done!
Andrews recently began her tenure as head minister at the old Care Chapel in Jamestown. Her first service was Easter Sunday. Grace Gospel is a non-denominational church and all are welcome.
Andrews was also guest speaker on the 13th at the Global M. B. Church in Memphis. Rev. Collie Heaston was honored for dutiful service to the Global M.B. Church ministries for doing a wonderful job as associate pastor. His beautiful wife, Janet, looked very lovely in her red dress and hat. All of the ladies were dressed in red. Yours truly performed “The House Inside of Me,” as a special request for the pastor and honoree. Rev. Andrews message came from I Samuels 16:21, “The Armor Bearer.”
On our prayer and sick list: Ruth Alston, Katarene Harber, Rudolph Boykins, Carlotta Jones, Jessie Lawson, Eva Heaston, Flossie Woods, Clark and Birdie Jones, Connie Brown, Mary Burton, Floyd White Sr., Beaulah Wakefield, Doris King, Emma Moore and family, Eugene and Gigi Baker, Joseph Heaston Sr. and Charlene Sneed.

Memphis’ North Star Community Church will celebrate its 16th anniversary on Sunday, May 4 at 2 p.m. Pastor Steven Miller Sr. and first lady Dorothy Miller host the event and several special guests will be attending. The public is invited.
Pastor W.E.Gatlin is expecting you on the first Saturday at noon, every month, for a religious filled missionary meeting. The public is invited to St. Paul M.B. in Drummonds.
This is all for this time. I hope all had a happy Easter. Never forget the true meaning of Easter; although the lovely dresses and suits, candies and colored eggs are quite alright, remember this, “It took Jesus’ love for a dying world to save all of our souls, oh, what a love!”
Until next time.
