People of Jamestown, as you all are aware, there is a new church in your area, Grace Gospel Church, under the leadership of Rev. Pearl Burton Andrews. Grace Gospel is the former Carey Chapel AME which was, years ago, the home church of our grandfather, Pink Nathaniel Sherrill Sr. It is the former church home of the Miller family, also (the late McKinley (Mac) and Mary Sherrill Miller of Jamestown). Rev. Andrews is delighted that her first time position as pastor is in this grand sanctuary. Sunday services are: Sunday school, 8-8:45 a.m. and worship 9 -10:15 a.m. Bible study is held at 5 p.m. each Wednesday. The public is invited to attend all services.
We would like to welcome Bright Hill’s new pastor and his lovely family into our community. Pastor D. Sanders is the former associate pastor of St Luke M.B. Church in Covington, and is joined by his wife, first lady Pam Hawkins Sanders, and their two lovely children. Pastor Sanders preached his first sermon as Bright Hill’s pastor on Easter Sunday morning. Again, welcome to Pastor D. Sanders and family.
On the prayer list, Eugene Baker, Ruth Alston, Flossie Woods, Jessie Lawson, Mary Burton, Katarene Harber, Charlene Sneed, Gladys Miller and family, Willie Reed Jr. and family, Clark and Birdie Jones, Carlotta Jones, Connie Brown, Beaulah Wakefield, Eva Heaston and Joseph Heaston Sr.
Happy birthday this week to Florene Sherrill Trent and everyone celebrating a birthday.
Our prayers are with the Bell family of Millington on the recent death of their grandfather.
This is all at this time, remember, “Stay prayed up, keeping your focus only on the positive aspects of your life, which enables you to always reach your goals!”
