Members of Lael Sunday School Class met recently for their regular monthly meeting at the family life center at First Baptist Church in Union City.
The outreach leader, Bobbie Adams, asked for those in need of prayer, including the sick and families who have lost a loved one.
Joyce Stephens, the class’ teacher, led in prayer.
Dot Capps, devotional leader, brought the devotional with the theme, “Prayer Kills Disability.”
She related the story of a young boy of 17 lying on his bed and studying his Bible. About a month before, he had rededicated his life to Christ and accepted the call to preach.
He was memorizing I John 3:21-23, which says, “Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we ask, because we obey His commands and do what pleases Him.” According to the report from the boy, “All of a sudden, it seemed God unleashed me and I was flooded with understanding. I realized that we received from God because we obey Him. That is a condition that we must meet in order to be approved by him.”
For the class’ monthly project, members decided to donate money in memory of deceased loved ones to help buy new song books for the church.
Members repeated the Pledge of Faith.
Dorothy Rasberry was the hostess and served cake with ice cream, M&Ms and Bugles with soft drinks or coffee.
Those attending were Ms. Rasberry, Edna McIntosh, Pat Cunningham, Jean Eaker, Mrs. Stephens, Lena Mai Pruitt, Ms. Capps, Mrs. Adams, Trudie Thornton, Faye Passmore and guest Ruth Ward.
The June hostess will be Mrs. Cunningham.
