The monthly newsletter for the First Presbyterian Church of Spring Hill, Tennessee.
I want to welcome Carol Jack into our church family; Carol has worshiped with us for a long time and decided to formalize her relationship on July 6th. It is a good thing for us to receive members, not because of our numbers, but because of what new members bring to us through their gifts and how their joining causes us to think about our own membership in Christ’s body. Even though Presbyterians don’t re-baptize new members we do encourage them to remember and reaffirm the vows from their own baptism; even if the vows were made on their behalf as infants. This reflection is not only for folks coming to join us; we all are expected to think about our baptism and how we are a family of baptized people. Take the opportunity to introduce yourself to our newest member, but also take the time to think how our own baptism shows that God’s grace is given to us in the face of our need and equips us to be disciples and brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ. I want to thank the congregation for your response to the special offering for the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance program; we received and passed along $1106.
Yours in Christ,
Please keep our sick and shut-ins in your prayers: Billie Galloway, Liz Jacobs, Margarette Marsden, Juanita Roberts, Frankie Sims, Jim Victory, and Jean Webster.
Please keep Jean Carlisle, Doris Prince’s sister, in your prayers; Jean suffered a stroke, and though doing better than expected, faces a long rehab.
Helen Wade died on August 4th after a long decline in her health. Helen is survived by her daughter Kathi Yasko and son David, a member of our church family. Please keep David and his family in your prayers.
The next couple of months have a lot going on for the PW, and we encourage all women of the church to take part.
