Lael Sunday School Class recently met at First Baptist Church in Union City for its regular June meeting.
Faye Passmore, assistant vice president, opened the meeting with the names of those that need prayers. Several names were mentioned and prayer was said for them.
Those present said their pledge of faith, “Believing in God,” which says, “God is who He says He is. God can do what He says He can do. I am who God says I am. I can do all things through Christ. God’s word is alive and active in me. ‘I’m Believing God.’”
Dot Capps gave the devotional on tithing, which means giving a 10th of your money to God.
“An unbeliever once said, ‘Money, money every time I go to church all they say is they want more money. The preacher said, ‘You should go more often,’” she said.
Ms. Capps took her devotion from Malachi 3:8-10 — “Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, were in have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse that there may be meat in mine house.”
Jean Eaker read several poems. The first one was from a former staff member of the church, Doug Moore. It was “What If.” The next two were a Cajun toast and a Cajun prayer.
Pat Cunningham was the hostess and served fruit cocktail cake, ice cream, Cheetos™ and drinks.
Those attending were Mrs. Cunningham, Edna McIntosh, Lena Mai Pruitt, Mrs. Eaker, Trudie Thornton, Joyce Stephens, Mrs. Capps, Dorothy Rasberry and Mrs. Passmore.
July hostess will be Mrs. Thornton.
