We were glad to have several members back for worship service on Sunday after being shut in with colds, flu and other illnesses.
There were several throughout the community.
Bro. C. White brought a wonderful message on Sunday at the Stallo United Methodist Church. His scriptures were Psalm 107 and Ephesian 5:15-20.
His wife Catrine accompanied him.
Also attending worship service with the Stallo Methodist Church family was Bro. Chuck Reynold.
The Mount Talley Baptist Church has been in revival this week.
Many seemed revived after hearing a message from a different speaker each night.
The Mount Ary Baptist Church will have their annual spring revival on March 10-13. The evangelist for the week will be the Rev. Lavoid Kelly, pastor of the Mount Talley Baptist Church.
The public is invited to these series of services which will begin at 7 p.m. nightly.
The Rev. Bennie Hopkins is pastor.
A baby shower was held recently for Heather Brantley Nwokomah. She received many gifts from family and friends.
