Being with family is the best gift of all

On Saturday, 6/16, Janet and Harry Culpepper hosted a family get together in my honor on my recent birthday. Those present were Jana, Jack, Kennedy Mayatt with friend Toby Smith and Grant Hartman and friend Carson Branton; Stephanie, Alan, Catcher, and Pepper Roberts; Becky and Robbie Faulk; Brooke and Derek Cranshaw; Benjamin and Katie Culpepper; Pam Jeffries; Lee, Holly, Caden, Caleb Thompson; Luke, Tracy, Will, Travis, Joe Thompson. The only family members not present were Pam’s husband, Jim Jeffries, who was in Ohio working and Harrison Smith. A great time of food, fellowship, games and fishing was enjoyed. The most wonderful present I could receive was being with family!

EBC NEWS: The Personnel Committee announced they have made a selection for a Minister of Music, Kerry Holifield. On Saturday, 6/23, we will have a Ice Cream Supper at 7 P.M. followed by a “Meet and Greet” time. This will be held down in the Pavillion and they are requesting that all cars park down in that area. (Choir practice will be held immediately after the above events) The next day, Sunday, Kerry will lead the Music during our worship service. We will be voting during that service. All church members are urged to attend both events.
