We are certainly enjoying the cool crisp weather we have been having lately. Trees everywhere are turning red, yellow or orange. It is a beautiful time of the year in Tennessee.
Bro. Tony Michael used Jonah 1:1-3 for his morning sermon text Sunday. He preached on the subject where is your Nineveh. He told us the presence of God is everywhere, you cannot run far enough away to get away from God.
We learned at birthday/anniversary recognition time that Gary and Debbie Casey have been married 36 years.
It was announced that Ann Martin will start meeting with our children at 6 p.m. Wednesdays to work on the Bible Drill. Their first meeting will be Wednesday night.
Our sympathy is extended to the family of Seldon Parham who passed away Friday. Bro. Seldon was a deacon at Jolley Springs for many years and is well remembered for his work with our youth group that was called The Jolley Gospel Singers. Bro. Jim Barnhouse and Dr. P. J. Scott conducted his funeral service Sunday. Jim Rich and Kathy Stover provided the music for the service. He was buried with full military honors at Sunset Cemetery beside his sweet wife, Minnie. Anyone wishing to honor Seldon and Minnie may do so by making a donation to a scholarship program that has been set up. For more information contact Joan Cubertson Eakin or Gerald Parham. The address is: Seldon & Minnie Parham Scholarship Fund, UTM Office of Development, 554 University Street, 329 Administration Building, Martin, TN 38238.
