Simmons. All of the other mothers received a small gift as well.

We wished our pastor, Bill Black a happy birthday.   Also, Hilary

King, Dean Armstrong’s granddaughter and Alyssa Oldaker were

celebrating birthdays.

Rick Collett and Choice Stephens took up the offering.  Dean

Armstrong, with Suzanne Carpenter at the grand piano sang “I’d Rather

Have Jesus.”

Bro. Bill Black’s sermon was from Psalms 14:1-7.  Evolution is only a

theory but it is taught as fact in our schools.

The Bible says “A fool says in his heart ‘There is no God.’”  Jesus

started with only 12 men and one of them betrayed him.  Yet they

turned the world up side down.  Works will never get you to heaven;

only faith in Christ will. Connie Woolf gave the benediction.

The congregation enjoyed an unusual Mother’s Day sermon from Pastor

Chuck Williams on Sunday, May 13.  After giving examples of both good

and bad mothers of today,  he led us through many passages from the

Old Testament starting with Proverbs 8:22-31.  These passages all show

us how God feels about mothers.  Good mothers bring order and

stability to their families and should be honored.  They are God's

creations.  All mothers in the congregation received beautiful red

roses, following a Mt. Pleasant  tradition.

Prairie Grove Church

What a week! The mission group made their trip to Two Grey Hills, N.M.

with four trailer loads of give away useful items, including clothing,

food and furniture.

A huge donation of carpet samples (door mat size) from Gressett's

Carpets made a big hit. Many of the Indian homes have dirt floors, so

simple things can mean a lot. Also, a special thanks to Mike Stokx at

the Continental Cafe Lake Kiowa for a generous supply of

non-perishable food.

This trip the team was able to go up into the mountains to give away

goods. It was exciting to see the expressions of the ladies who

recieved needed items.

A washing machine was donated to the Mission house, so we enjoyed

“sand free” clothing after a sand storm that blew through.

The team is now collecting items for the next trip. Furniture is our

main focus.  Children are sleeping on the floors, and their clothes

are stacked on shelves or in bags.

It is a blessing to all of us who are a part of passing along

blessings. A special word of gratitude to all who made this trip


The financial help was very needed, so thanks to all who gave so

kindly. “Kindness is the oil that takes the friction out of life.”

On Sunday May 20, lunch will be at the church. We are saying good bye

to Bro. Preston, who along with his wife are moving to

Prairie Grove (yes), Arkansas to be near their children.   It has been

great having him supply the sermons while we are without a preacher.

We hope to see you this Sunday.  Services begin at 9:30 a.m. for

Whaley United Methodist Church

Sometimes we do not know what God wants from us. We do not see how God

has worked through us. In chapter 24 of Luke, Jesus enables the

disciples to see the reality of his resurrection. He then helps them

understand the scriptures and tells them to go to Jerusalem to wait

for power. Part of the Christian life is waiting for God to reveal to

us what we need to know. Join us for worship this Sunday, with the

sermon, “Waiting for Our Clothes.”

We worship in traditional style at 9 a.m. and contemporary style at 11

a.m. Both services feature excellent music, and the 11 a.m. service
