Happy Mother's Day

Hello Everyone,
I don't know if anyone is reading these post, but here it goes anyway. We celebrated Mother's Day here at First Baptist yesterday. The sanctuary was decorated by lovely flowers in memory of Mrs. Inez Roberts. There was also flowers left from the family of Mrs. Margaret Goodson. The choir sang a couple of songs, and Heather Hancock sang "Prayer Warriors". She always does a great job, and this song was perfect to honor our prayer warrior mothers!
Bro. Stanley gave us a message showing how Mary cared, corrected and loved her son Jesus. He also brought some personal reflections of being a dad. We are truly blessed to have a pastor who shares with us, and leads us as Bro. Stanley does.
I hope each of you had time to see your family. Carmon and I visited our mothers, and the boys had a chance to say Happy Mother's Day.
Upcoming: Next Sunday (May 17th) will be our Graduate service. We are really proud of our High School Graduates:
Bentley Burns - Tupelo High School Sydney Castleberry - Baldwyn High School
Bailey Davis - Saltillo High School Brett Davis - Saltillo High School

We also have two who will not be here. Samantha Grisham graduated in December and has already enrolled at Northeast. Rial Copeland will graduate from the National Guard Challenge Academy.

We will also honor Billy and Merle Glover this Sunday with a reception in the gym. The Glovers' will be moving to be near their son. We will miss thess Godly, faithful servants, and wish them well.
