Sis. Linda shared the Christmas story from Luke 2. Comparisons were made between the births of many of our recent babies at FBC to the conditions of Jesus’ birth.
      
   God could have had Mary already in Bethlehem and not have to travel 60 miles to the birth place, and
God could have prepared a comfortable room because, after all, He is God!
 
 He allowed all these circumstances to fall into place and testify of the humble nature and mission of the Messiah.
He is in control and orchestrating in our lives even when our circumstances seem not to make sense.

As usual we had delicious food, fun fellowship, and the White Elephant ornament exchange.

Some  ladies ended up going home with their first pick or their “stolen” pick …while others got their ornament rudely taken from them not only once, not only twice, but 3 times!!!

APPLES-Moms Back to School Fellowship

September 6, 2008

Sis. Linda shared a challenge from Proverbs 25:11.

Proverbs 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

Our words are to always be…

A-ppropriate (Proverbs 15:23)

P-leasant (Proverbs 16:24)

P-ure (Proverbs 10:11)

L-ovely (Ephesians 4:29)

E-ncouraging (Proverbs 12:25)

S-oft (Proverbs 15:1)

Mrs. Roundtree shared a little about herself and we continued the theme of Apples with an array of foods with apples. There were salads, a danish, a trifle, a cake, dips, caramel, and bread with apples.

There was a Bag Auction to end the night. Thankfully there were no bag sluggings with all the heated biddings. The proceeds went to the church school. Thanks to Sis. Portia for her bag donations and to all who took part in the auction.

Sis. Rochelle and Sis. Linda did a fine job modeling and auctioning out the bags.

These ladies sure look happy with their purchases. Women can never have enough purses!

The Art of Bead Making

May 4, 2008

Sis. Jeannine Hood taught several ladies the art of bead making recently. Her bead collection consists of many different styles, shapes, and colors that she and her children have made. She shared some methods of how to make the different styles of beads as the ladies “ooohed and aahhed” over samples she brought. It didn’t seem possible that we could make something we would only think of buying at a fashion jewelry store. But, after choosing the colored clay, cutting, rolling, shaping, baking, and glazing we were pretty amazed at our creations. The next step was to string the beads and add charms and silver and gold spacers. Wow! Beautiful!
