Congregation spends weekend remodeling Dozier church

Published 12:00 am Thursday, January 20, 2005

Saturday turned out to be a great day for the starting of the remodeling of Dozier Freewill Baptist Church. Wayne and Debbie Walker had breakfast ready for the crew when everyone arrived. The women cleaned the inside of the chapel while the men moved a structure to make way for the real work to began. The church has extreme termite damage and it would cost more to repair it than to just tear it down and start over with a structure that will last. The church is asking for any donations. If you have something you would be willing to donate for them to sell to make money or if you would like to make a cash donation please contact Brother Rockey Pearce at 334-527-3197. If you would like to help in the remodeling please call Brother Rockey. There is going to be a lot of work and they can use all the help they can get. Brother Rockey asks that everyone please keep this church in your prayers.

Thank God no one got hurt last Saturday and the weather cooperated.

Kids and Kin will meet today at the Meadow Crest Apartments from 10:00 am till12:00 pm. For more information please call Debbie Bloodworth at 334-429-0367.

There will be a Quilt Club meeting today at the home of Susie Carnes at 1:30 pm.

Dozier Freewill Baptist Church will have their singing this Saturday night starting at 6:00 pm with supper and the singing at 7:00 pm. The Henderson Family from Milton, Fla will be the guest singers. Everyone is welcome.

The MaChis Lower Creek Tribe of New Brockton had their monthly meeting Sunday January 16. There were several in attendance. The Indian Festival is planned for Friday March 11, Saturday March 12 and Sunday March 13 on Hwy 231 North in the Pine Level community. Vendor spaces are available. Dancers and drummers are welcome. If you are interested please attend the meeting in February.

Please continue to pray for our community, our military, our government and the world. So many have lost family members, homes and jobs. I am sure they feel as though their faith is being tested so please let's remember themin our prayers.

I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Mrs

Layton. She was just the sweetest person. My mother was in her Sunday school class at one time Mrs Layton would come by the store to visit with her. After we started at a new church she would still come by and ask about mom. Kindness and a gentle heart. That's how I will always remember her.

Until next time please pray for me and I'll pray for you.
