The Monday Study Club met September 28 at the United Methodist Church. President Donna DeTienne opened with pledges to the American and the Christian flags. The roll call was answered using the word “redemption” in scripture. The devotional was given by Martha Hopke from “The Upper Room,” entitled, “A Christian Grandmother’s Advice.”
Secretary Jackie Marshall read the minutes and they were approved.
Treasurer Val Galloway gave her report.
Corresponding Secretary Jackie Marshall said a card was sent to Emma Belle Clithero, who has returned to her home.
The Spring luncheon plans were discussed and agreed on. The Duty was given by hostess Val Galloway from Romans Chapter 3, “Redemption by the Blood,” which states we are judged only by God, the fear of the Lord leads to righteousness, and that God is love, and the road to peace. Galloway also led in the question and answer session. Galloway then gave the Special Study, which she received from her friend Jeanie Zimmer entitled, “The Woman and the Fork.” Upon her last request, the woman told her pastor she wanted to be buried with a fork in her hand which would signify that, “It wasn’t over, that dessert was to follow, there’s something better to come.”
The Club Collect was repeated by all members. Those present were Martha Hopke, Val Galloway, Donna DeTienne, Doris Ray, Jackie Marshall, Kay Reading, and our new member Penny Schoneboom.
