FEBRUARY 28, 2016 WEEKLY NEWS

These Changes Will Come In March:

March 6th: Starting next Sunday, there will be a change in regard to the men who are serving at the Lord’s Table. Only the man in position #2 will say all the prayers. In connection with this change: are there any additional men who would be willing to serve in the “no prayer” positions? Please let one of the elders or Joe know.

March 27th: As always, our monthly Fellowship Meal occurs on the last Sunday of the month. The change, though, will be that from March on it will take place after our morning worship assembly. Because of this different arrangement, we will have a combined Bible class in the auditorium on those Sundays, so that the ones hosting can work on the preparations for the meal. Afterwards, will have a devotional and then we will be dismissed for the day.

Please check . . .

. . . the “Continue to Remember” list and the “In The Military” list periodically. If you think that your name or the name of a loved one needs to be removed (or added), please let the secretary (Helga) know! And as always, a written note or e-mail is best.  Your help is very, very much appreciated!

News from the Cherokee Home for Children

Hello friends! We are back at it again. Sorry it has taken a month for me to get going, but the first of the year always brings its own excitement and challenges! I want to send things to you that are beneficial and useful to you and your mission efforts. Thank you all for the ways you support Cherokee Home for Children. – Kaci Duggan Morrison, Administrative Assistant

The Cherokee Lady Indians advanced to the Area Playoffs and lost by only 1 point. Seven of the girls on the team are from CHC—Sophia, Kaitlyn, Tori, Alexis, Emmy , and Crista. Tori was named Offensive MVP and Sophia was given 1st Team honors. The Cherokee Indians advanced to the playoffs and put in a good effort but came up short. Carter and Kohlton are CHC boys, and they were major players on the team.

A generous friend of Cherokee Home is providing resources for our children to learn to play the piano. Five of our kids were involved in a piano recital where they performed before friends and family . We are proud of Kylie, Jenny, Sophia, Kaitlyn, and Carter and the hours they have put into acquiring this beauti ful skill.

The celebration of the 50th Super Bowl at the Cherokee Home started out with a beautiful worship service with lots of singing. Everyone enjoyed watching football on a life-size screen as the best! During the game we had a feast of fried chicken tenders, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, and snacks galore.

Note from Delton McGuire:

“With a mixture of joy and a sigh of relief my responsibilities changed again today at Cherokee Home for Children. Five years ago I moved into the ED role at the tragic death of the former director. This was after seven years as the chief development officer. I am again the Director of Development. I’ve gone from three jobs earlier today, non-profit administration, program, and funding, to just one, fundraising. And that has always been my favorite. And now I might get to spend a little more time with my four grandchildren.”

Continue to pray for and seek ways to bless these children, for this is “religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father”. For the elders, Ken D
