Hunter Hynds Unit meets

Posted: Tuesday, November 18, 2008 2:37 pm

The Hunter Hynds Unit of United Methodist Women held its November meeting at Stanley’s Chapel with 12 members present. President Chris Cheatham called the meeting to order. Mrs. Cheatham gave the opening prayer following many prayer requests and concerns and led the unit in reciting the purpose. Emily Haynes read the minutes, and Leanne Parnell gave the treasurer’s report. Working toward the unit’s goal to participate in the reading program, Linda Winstead volunteered to read “Taught by America,” and Shannon Roberts agreed to read “Enrique’s Journey.” Rosemary Coleman reported on an article from Response magazine regarding the origin of the Brooks Howell home in Ashville, N.C., for deaconesses — the motto being “Called, Served and Still Sewing.” Announcements included next month’s meeting to be held at Brandy’s in Martin and Masquerade Theater’s presentation of “It’s a Wonderful Life” the first two weekends of December. John Blanton, Serena Blanton’s husband, and their daughter, Emma Blanton, are members of the cast, with John in the leading role of “George Bailey.” Mrs. Chris Cheatham served as program leader of the World Thank Program titled “Giving Thanks for Good News” by Lisa Swett. The membership participated in a “good news, bad news” activity with several sharing their feelings about concerns about the basic theme being depicted. Mrs. Roberta Peacock read Bible selections, Psalm 100 and Micah 6:6-8. An additional reading of Malachi 3:8 was presented by Linda Winstead, who also sang a solo, “We Thank Thee All Our God.” A special offering for missions was taken. Mrs. Cheatham gave closing remarks in a spirit of thankfulness, and Becky Barnes dismissed us with prayer. wcp 11-18
