We had a good service at Progress this Sunday morning with Bro. Dan bringing a very good message from 1 Samuel 17: 12-28. Even though he was having pain in his knee, he got up to the podium this morning.
We honored Joley Fortenberry on graduating from SMCC and will be going to a Radiology school next.
We also honored Joseph Fortenberry with a Bible on his graduation from South Pike with honors. This was his last Sunday for six weeks because he will be going to the Hood Scout Reservation in Hazlehurst as a camp counselor. On May 14th there was a celebration for Joseph at his home. It was a happy day.
Brandon Chriswell was not at church this morning so his Bible was given to his mother Bridgett Piper. Kevin and Bridgett gave him a party on Saturday 21st with family and friends.
Haleigh Starret graduated from SMCC also, she received her degree in Medical Billing and coding. I didn’t know this until this am.
Jacob Martin graduated from High North Pike School. I didn’t know this last week.
Clayton Lampton’s son Masiyum graduated also. I hear a lot of good things about Clayton and his family.
I know I am missing more of you but I do congratulate all of you and pray you will have a successful life. Love to you all.
The following two paragraphs are a repeat from last week as reminders.
Progress BC will celebrate Homecoming on June 5th starting at 10:00 am with music and honors. Worship service at 11:00 am with guest speaker Greg Barker. Please pass the word to family and friends as so many of our former members have passed away and addresses have changed along with home phones and can’t get cell phone numbers. It is turning into a real problem keeping up with former member’s family.
Mt. Zion BC Will host ‘The Fortner Brothers’ of Northeast Alabama in concert on May 28th (Saturday) at 6:00 pm. Then they will be in concert on May 29th (Sunday) at 10:30 am. Mark your calendars to join them for this music worship. Since most of you have your church commitment on Sunday, we can all be there on Saturday night. I am anxious to hear this talented group. Call Bro. Richie for questions, 601-395-9757.

Jesus said unto him (Thomas), “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” --- John 14:6
Praying everyone will have a safe and blessed week, Aline.
