Gayle Miller of Neel, Patti Condo of Decatur and Christie Guthrie and Dana Henslee of Hartselle attended the Phil Waldrop Women of Joy conference in Louisville, Ky. May 13-15. The theme was Restore from Psalms 51:12, Restore to me the joy of your salvation. The speakers were Patsy Clairmont, Margaret Fineberg, Jennifer Rothschild and Lisa Harper. Lisa spoke at the Sunday morning session and used Luke Chapter 13 as her scripture. She asked the women: “How many of you are bent?” Jesus can restore you to complete uprightness no matter what caused you to be bent. God can restore years that locusts have eaten away. Charles Billingsley was the worship leader. The Corinth West Baptist women who attended felt blessed and were thankful for the opportunity to enjoy the inspiration from the speakers and the music.

The Lay members at Forrest Chapel UMC recently served as worship leaders on the United Methodist women’s Sunday. Pat Byford brought an inspiring message of commitment, conveying that only when God is in control of all aspects of our lives can we experience real freedom as individuals, confirmed by II Corinthians 3:17, “Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

On Sun., May 15, while pastor David Teel attended the Festival of Homiletics (Preaching), Seleena Lindsey gave a powerful message titled “No perfect people allowed.” She challenged individuals to live their lives realistically and explained that even though we have flaws we don’t want exposed, when we accept ourselves for who we are, God can truly see us as his servants. He has a purpose for our lives, Seleena referenced in scripture from Matthew 6:5. “Do not be like the hypocrites for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others” and Matthew 18:3. “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like one of the least of these you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” The church congregations appreciated Pat and Seleena’s inspiring messages.

The Sisters in Christ of Forrest Chapel UMC met Thur., May 12, in the fellowship hall at 6:30 p.m. for a pizza party. The program on faithfulness was given by Tanya Shubert, the hostess. Afterwards, the women had a hands-on work session in the church.

On Mon., May 16, Mt. Zion Baptist had a barbecue supper for the Milestones Drugs Rehab group at 6 p.m. in the fellowship hall to honor the Milestones members for the outreach work they do. They also received gifts from the Mt. Zion women. Everyone enjoyed the fellowship and the barbecue and drinks.

Mt. Zion Baptist Church will have a cookout with hotdogs and hamburgers on Sun., May 29, at 6 p.m. Their vacation Bible school will be June 12-16, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and supper will be served first. They will have classes for the nursery through the teens and adult classes as well. The theme is “Submerged” and everyone is welcome to attend. Brother Wayne Penn is their pastor.

Fairview: The Grace Place had their senior recognition during the 10 a.m. service Sun., May 22. Afterward, the honored seniors, parents and congregation enjoyed a luncheon in the activities center. Good wishes go out to the graduates.

Christian love and heartfelt prayers go out to Joyce 0’Neil of Massey who was in intensive care at Huntsville Hospital. She is in a room now and hopes to be getting out soon. Our prayers also go out to GayNell Wilhite, who will have surgery May 31, in Cullman.
