Sunday School 1999 Annual Report

Sunday School classes for the children have been held each Sunday during the last portion of the morning worship service. Songs, stories and activities teaching them about the Life of Christ is the current focus. Adult Sunday school had been held prior to the morning worship service, but has been on hiatus. I am hoping to get the adult class active again and would encourage everyone to get involved in this time of Bible study.

Respectfully submitted,

Karen Wilkinson
Sunday School Superintendent

Volunteers 1999 Annual Report

The Volunteer-Missionary Society met regularly on the first Wednesday of the month at 1:30 p.m. in the church fellowship room. There are sixteen members on the roll call list with an average attendance of eight. This years officers were: President-Marion Sanford, Vice President-vacant, Secretary-Vivian Dodge, and Treasurer-Clara Harrop. Committees were Sunshine-Marion Sanford, Luncheon-Clara Harrop, Vivian Dodge, and Darlene Mellom.

Some projects we worked on were: lap robes, wheelchair and walker bags for shut ins at Nursing homes. Hospice and also those at home. We also made baby quilts to give to newborn babys.

Other projects we took part in were money donations; $1,000.00 toward our new kitchen counter tops, $250.00 to R. B. C. Ministries for the distribution of the Daily Bread, and $100.00 to Madison Rescue Mission.

Our group purchased and planted flowers in the three planters outside the church in the front and by the church sign. Another valuable service we provide with help from members of the congregation and others in the community is to serve a luncheon after funerals. This year we served the luncheon for Mary Stafford's funeral, one of our church members.

We cleaned the church kitchen in April and again with members help after the counter tops were installed.

Two months we held on activity instead of the regular meeting. In July we met at Grandma Mary's Restaurant for lunch and then played some games.

In September we went on an outing to Oakwood Fruit Farm with dinner at Peaches and some shopping at WalMart.

Every other month we have devotions and the next month we do a project.

Sending cards and visitations are an important part of our ministry.

In December we purchased and delivered eight Poinsettia plants to shut-ins. Helping in any way we can, caring, and sharing in His Service.

Respectfully submitted,
Vivian Dodge, Secretary
