Merry Christmas to all! Praying for a great Christmas together with family and friends and make the best memories possible but remember the “Reason for the Season.”
We will have a Community Meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 10, and we encourage members to join to join us if at all possible. We will be discussing events to add to our 2023 year calendar and start some planning as well as needs for the center. We are providing to a soup/sandwich meal for this meeting. We need more community involvement for our center and would like to invite people to join in. Annual renewal dues are $25 after your first initial year of joining. Payments can be mailed to Edith Sills at 4475 Sunshine Rd, Henderson, TN 38340. We appreciate all our members and would like to have more events if we can get enough help to do so. Call Ann or myself if you have any new ideas for the center or wish to get involved. People who want to rent the community center should contact Betty Cooper at 879-9078 for booking.
Hope that all of you are well on your way to having your Christmas shopping and wrapping completed or at least it will be soon. I have found that making daily goals for myself is working well and keeping away much of the stress. Teachers, staff and students will soon be on their holiday break and plan ways to make your time together as a family turn into great memories.

Please be in prayer for all local and federal elected officials as decisions are made, law enforcement, first responders, healthcare workers, teachers and administrators; with all the upside down happenings in our world around us, pray daily. There is much spiritual warfare with society accepting things that go against who God is and what HIS laws are that we are to follow. Every day of life has its challenges, but if we look to God for the right path, it can be a good one. Please pray for those suffering from the flu, COVID and other seasonal illnesses and Joann Fowler, Samantha Stark, Cathy Meek, Janice Morris, Dot Smith, Elecia Ellis, Lisa Bishop, Bro. Iran Smith, Kathy Emerson, Jeanette Walker, Paul Schilling, Jennifer Paton, Nancy Crouse, Martha Cooper, Jake Richardson, Ann Morrison, Faye Crouse, Ed Morris and others that are sick or healing. We especially want to remember the families of Joyce Bain Hart Brewer, Kate Smith Garner, Bobby Lee Steward, Minnie Lee Tidwell, Billy Wayne Faulkner, John Armpsted II and other families that have recently lost loved ones.
