Pleasant Hill News
By: By Beverly Bastyr
Greetings from Pleasant Hill on a beautiful Monday morning! We had a great day at church yesterday. Bro. Elwood, Carolyn, Angela and the choir did a great job with our music, and Bro. Bill Kisner sang a solo for our special music. We didn’t know he could sing as good as he can preach! Glad to see Carolyn Doss back at church also.
Our sympathy is extended to Mark and Sylvia Allen and their family in the death of their daughter, April. She is a cousin to one of my best friends, Rhonda Capps. April leaves behind her parents and two children.
Congratulations to Carolyn Doss on being awarded Teacher of the Year for the 2007-08 school year at Martin Primary School. Carolyn has also officially retired and congratulations on her retirement also!
To all members of Pleasant Hill: We will be meeting and hearing Bro. Bruce McCaleb of Southaven, Miss., preach a trial sermon next Sunday, April 27. We will have a fellowship meal after church to meet him and his family and get acquainted. They have two children. We have been without a pastor for over a year so we pray this is the man that God has sent to us. Our pulpit committee has been working very hard for a long time to try and find the man whom God has laid on their hearts to be our pastor.
Please be in prayer for Mrs. Velma Caudle who fell last Saturday and hurt her face very badly. Keep Harry in your prayers also. Send Ms. Velma a get well card and let her know you are thinking of her.
If you attend Pleasant Hill and are graduating from college, high school, eighth grade or kindergarten this year, please let Gwen Coleman know this.
Several from our Sunday School class went to Paducah last Friday to see the dogwoods, azaleas and tulips in bloom. They took the well-marked self-guided night tour. The night tour is a 12-mile lighted Dogwood Trail (with azaleas and tulips in the lawns of beautiful homes). The trail included Lower Town Art District, which is being restored. Those who enjoyed this event and dinner at Cracker Barrel were Shirley Cheatham, Max and Verna Lee, Seymour and Dolores Mansfield, Joe and Joyce Lee and Larry and Mary Fowler.
A group of Red and Pink Hatters took a tour of pre Civil War Homes in Bolivar. The homes were very close to authentic (with original furniture, family pictures, toys and family diaries) since members of the family had occupied them until recent years. Citizens of the town performed characters from the past at the Polk Cemetery, which contains the remains of family members of our 11th president, James K. Polk. The Red Hat and Pink Hat ladies who traveled along the scenic highway to Bolivar were Shirley Cheatham, Cheryl Cheatham, Carla Vowell, Joyce Lee, Dinah Breeden, Michelle Syler, Debra Parker and two friends.
The Agape House is holding a golf tournament May 3 to help raise needed funds for the pregnancy care center. Ladies from area churches are being asked to help serve food during the tournament luncheon. If interested, please see Linda Fowler.
Happy birthday this week to Rebecca Hundley (April 21) and Linda Bowers (April 22).
And until next week, may God bless!
