We were saddened to hear that our sister in Christ, Myrtle Hazlewood, passed from this life on March 17th surrounded by her family. Our hearts go out in love with prayers and sympathy to Billy, Valerie, her siblings, all the extended family and all who knew and loved her. Visitation and Funneral Services were held in our church building on Monday, Joe Winnett officiated. Internment followed at the Llano City Cemetery in Llano.
THANK YOU NOTE
To our Church Family,
We thank all the hands that prepared and served the meal. It was delicious. We thank Joe for the beautiful service and message. We thank John for leading the songs. We are grateful for all the meals, calls, cards, text messages, flowers, but most of all the prayers that lifted us up.
In His love, The Family of Myrtle Hazlewood

PUT THESE ON YOUR CALENDAR
- Our March fellowship meal has been moved to next Sunday, April 2nd. We will enjoy this fellowship with the Emperado family who will be here reporting to us about their work in the Philippines. There will be no PM services that Sunday as usual. Plan to bring your favorite dish and help us welcome the Emperados!
- The Cherokee Home for Children will have its food drive on May 6th, 2017. We will again be sending money for this effort rather than trying to collect and deliver food items. If members would like to contribute to this effort, please give your gift to one of the elders and it will be included in the check sent to Cherokee.
THURSDAY EVENING DINNER FELLOWSHIP
On Thursday, April 13th will be our next get together. Because of logistics, the location will be different than previously announced. We will meet the group from the church in Marble Falls at the RIVER CITY GRILL. Time is between 5:00 and 5:30 pm. The signup sheet is already on the table in the back of the auditorium.
The promised letter from Godwin I., Nigerian gospel preacher, mentioned in last week’s bulletin, will be in this place next week. Due to some server problems, we were unable to connect with the internet and retrieve it. Thank you for your patience!
MORE THOUGHTS ON LOVE
God loves us just the way we are, but he refuses to leave us there, He wants us to have a heart like His. He wants us to be just like Jesus. What would our daily life really be like if we really committed ourselves to be like Jesus and do what He tells us to do?
“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?” Luke 6:46 (ESV)
“Things are not to be loved, they’re to be used. The corollary to that is this: people are not to be used, they’re to be loved.” – Sheldon Vanauken, good friend of C.S. Lewis
“It is amazing how much time we spend living and caring for things and using people. What would happen if we took seriously the fact that things are to be used and not loved and people are to be loved and not used? – Randy Harris, LIVING JESUS.
In Matthew 5:27-32, Jesus calls his followers to a different view of the world where people are to be loved, where faithfulness is a deep and powerful characteristic of our lives. What do you think? – Via Ken Darnell
