Christmas program at Corinth West Methodist Church

Christmas Eve at 9 a.m.,  

Dec. 19 the members of Corinth West Methodist Church enjoyed a program titled “Angels Cape,” wherein four angels were preparing for Jesus’ birth. They had shepherds, a nativity scene and a candle service.   

The four angels were Melanie Maddox, Roxanne Asherbranner, Haley Harper and Katie Smith. Other members served as shepherds and wise men, and Shelly Maddox was the pianist.  

Refreshments were served in the fellowship hall following the service.  

The  Christie Guthrie at Corinth West Baptist Church will coordinate the January  

Saying goodbye   

Many people from all walks of life had a lot of experiences both good and bad in 2021. COVID changed the way we normally would go about our day-to-day way of living.  

A lot of families lost loved ones because of COVID, and a lot of close friends were lost,  

Online church services became a routine way of attending church. Virtual classes at home also became the new school day for students. We had to learn how to deal with social distancing, and even now, a lot of people are still wearing protective face masks  

I hope and pray 2022 will be filled with no COVID and with neighbors and friends helping each other when they have problems to deal with.  

“God bless us, everyone.”
