Sunday, December 12th Joys:
Dave Howard – My son found out he does not have Parkinson’s.  He got involved with some kind of paint chemical. Thank God!
Robin Hinson– Our Women’s Group had our Christmas Fellowship on Tuesday evening and Bonnie Burleson, Anita Walker, and Christi Tucker did a lot of work putting it together and it was just a great time to be together.
Parker Hinson– I just want to say that it’s a joy to be in good health and it is something we all take for granted.  It is just a blessing to be in good health.
Pastor Ron – I get joy just looking out and seeing you all!

Prayer Concerns:

Family of Amy Almond (Ronnie & Treva Hinson’s daughter)
Family of the Lady Killed on Canton Road

Be in prayer for our church as we begin some new things this year. We are going to begin a Grief Group because we have had so much loss in our church this year. Not just pray for these folks, but reach out to some of our folks by phone and just say hello.  We are going to have a few other groups in the future to help those in our community with various needs. 
Pray for those in Kentucky and Mississippi and the states where the severe tornados hit.
