ROCKY HILL CHURCH
Rocky Hill Baptist Church! There were trees and big forest boards and oh so much more. On Sunday morning the children performed several songs they learned last week to a packed auditorium. It was a wonderful week!
The vacation bible school decorations were left up for the quarterly meeting of the Transylvania Baptist Association this Tuesday, which was held at Rocky Hill. A dinner was served prior to the meeting and the choir performed two songs for visitors.
FRIEND IN PRAYER
Many remember Lynne Baldwin who was very active when she lived in Brevard, though she moved four year's ago to be close to her daughter and her family in Illinois. Last week Lynne came here for a visit, only to spend the week in Asheville's Memorial Mission hospital! A heart valve that had been replaced prior to Lynne's move to Illinois was leaking and caused her to faint! Though she drove here her orders were to fly back to Illinois, where she will follow up with surgery to repair the valve. Arrangements were made and Joe and Christine Pace took Lynne to Asheville's airport last weekend. She made it home OK and said the airport had a wheelchair waiting for her at her layover in Atlanta. Please keep my dear friend in prayer!
