SILVER CREEK NEWS BY ERMA WALKER

I’m back!!! Hello from Pastor Rogers and the entire Church family.

Glad to be back, but had a great trip to Japan. We enjoyed our stay with our daughter, Clintnecha, her husband, DeMarco, grand-daughter, Ariana and the new addition to the family, little DeMarco Walker Brayboy.  He made his arrival on May 21, 2016. Left the family doing fine. We thank God for a safe trip to and from Japan.
The General Bapt. Women’s Quarterly Institue was held at our Church on Saturday at 10:00a.m where Rev. Jerry Rogers is Pastor and Moderator.

The session was spirit-filled. Hats off to Rev. Henry Kelly for bringing his Youth to the session. He’s the Pastor of St. Paul Bapt. Church in Bassfield.  Thank you.

The 117th Annual Session of the Lawrence, Jefferson Davis and Lincoln Counties Sunday School and BTU Convention was held at North Pleasant M.B. Church in New Hebron, Ms on July 2-3, 2016 where Rev. Moses Johnson is Pastor.

Sunday School began at 9:30 a.m. with Supt. Tommy Walker in charge.

The Adult class was taught by Dec. Clint Walker. Subject:”Matching Words With Actions”. Text Scripture Romans 2:17-29.

The Youth Choir was in charge of song service. After the opening song Dec. Clint Walker read the scripture, Psalm 23 followed by hymn “Pass Me Not” by Sis. Erma Walker.  Dec. Clint Walker and Dec. A. G. Magee came with prayers. Pastor Rogers came with opening remarks followed by the Responsive Reading coming from Psalm 8.

Benovelent offering was taken up with the choir singing “Thank you, Lord”. Courtney Gardner and Harmony Longino blessed us by leading the song,”Every Praise”. James and Martha Malloy were our visitors for the day. Martha is the sister of Corine Walker, Veira McLaurlin and George Walker. Her husband, James, blessed us with a song, “Worth” as always. They reside in Halelack, North Carolina.  Glad to have them in our service.

Pastor Rogers came with the Word from on high. Scripture text: Mark 10:17-22 Text words: “Coming to Grips with Life”.

On this Christian journey you will be faced with obstacles, but He is always with you.

Rev. Rogers took us to the cross. We know the story. Jesus died but in three days He rose with all power in His hands. Doors of the Church was opened with the son “I will trust in the Lord”.

Pastor and Deacons prepared for Communion. We were dismissed. Glad to have David Magee, Sr. as part of our service. He is the son of Dec. A.G. Magee and Mrs. Vernell Magee. Happy belated birthday to Mrs. Versie Johnson. She celebrated her birthday on Sunday, July 3, 2016. Mrs. Ruby Walker was all smiles as her son, Chris Walker was in attendance. He is also the brother of Dec. Clint Walker.

Funeral arrangements were incomplete at the time of this publication for Mr. Hulon Newsome. He is the father of Phyllis Bryant and the brother of Mr. John Newsome.
