Volunteers Needed for G&R Breakfast and Cookie Bake/PotLuck

At our last meeting we decided on the program for the Graduates and Retirees breakfast. However, we also had limited volunteers to take care of duties that help prepare for it. I am on the next Kairos team (which culminates on the day of the program) and doing end-of-school preparation. I have had to do it alone before and it was overwhelming. Members have suggested before that I ask for help so that it what I'm doing. We will need individuals to:

  • Contact Sister Lofton about the breakfast meal. She has told me in the past that she can add to the usual breakfast but check with her on what needs to be purchased to add to what she already has; then go purchase it and bring it to the church. Save the receipt for reimbursement.
  • Decorate the Education Center on Saturday afternoon. Get with the custodian for table and chair arrangement.
  • Get the names of the honorees from the office and purchase the latest spiritual literature from the Life Way Bible shop near the Mall of Louisiana. (Everyone already has a bible).
  • Contact the proposed guest speaker and confirm his/her appearance.
If someone besides me doesn't get these things done, we cannot have the program. I will be out of town doing the Lord's real work -- working out of the hotel in St. Francisville for Kairos Angola #66. If anyone wants to help bake cookies for it, please come out any time between 3:00 and 8:00 PM .

Astounding Sisterhood

What a productive meeting on last evening!

After the meeting was called to order, Sister Peggy led us in prayer. I lieu of a devotional I shared "Are You Ok?" based on a Bitemoji that caused me to think about folks who don't realize how blessed they are.

In our old business was the treasurer's report by Sister Elmira Wicker from her and Sister Mary Garner. Prayer request for the sick and shut in was concerning Sister Mildred Spriggins. Her daughter Antonia Spriggins had brain surgery on yesterday. Please lift her up immediately upon reading of this request.

Sister Annette Yancy suggested and gave us the synopsis of an appropriate Christian movie so the membership has decided to go to see the movie Breakthrough at the AMC on April 23, 2019. She will text the start times and I will text and email the membership. Of course each member is to forward any text or email to make sure that we reach everyone.

Our next meeting will be a lunch meeting at Applebee's on Airline Highway. That meeting will be at 1:00PM instead of our usual time of 6:00 on Tuesday May 14.

Another date to remember is May 4. Graduates and retirees should have their names turned in to the office by then. Graduates and retirees breakfast is the last Sunday in May which is May 26 (8:00 AM). They can also send their information as a reply to this blog entry in the comments below. Also on May 4 at 7:30 PM the Sisterhood will attend the New Venture production of the dance musical Cookout at the LSU Shaver Theater. Admission price is $20.

It was brought to the attention of the membership that Sister Doris Hawkins, president of the Home Mission Ministry requested that the Sisterhood participate in the prayer breakfast in May. It was decided by the membership that we would support her in attendance and that I could help her with the designing of the program that she has planned but we do not have the money in our budget to help co-sponsor it this year.

Remember that for all ventures 'off campus' those of us who live near will meet in the south parking lot of the church, at least 30 minutes prior to the event lot of the church to make sure that we can consolidate rides. This is a service that is especially for some of our more seasoned sisters who no longer drive at night or across town. Also consider picking up someone who lives near you or on the way.

Not only will I see you, Sisters, I will see your guests as you remind other sister that EVERY female at Mount Pilgrim is a member of THE  SISTERHOOD MINISTRY.

Don't forget that God loves you and I love you,
and there's nothing you can do about it! 💓

Sisterhood Reminder for April 9, 2019

Sisterhood meeting is tomorrow evening, Sisters.

I know we decided to see Green Book together but when I found the date that we could go my husband said it was already on PPV on DTV.  I'd like to suggest the just released movie starring Taraji P. Henson The Best of Enemies. It is playing at Movie Tavern which is the closets theater to us. Click the link to see a synopsis. 
Sister Doris Hawkins has called me to ask if the Sisterhood would like to participate in the Prayer Breakfast again. I informed her that we would discuss it at meeting and I would let her know what the membership says. Since I was out I was not aware if we had already chosen this activity or if we are on the calendar for Mother's Day Luncheon.
Now that it's April, it's time for lunch or dinner at Applebee's
See you tomorrow evening at 6:00 pm, Sisters!

I love you; God loves you... and there is nothing you can do about it!

March is Disabilities Awareness Month , Famous People and Eye Care

"In 1987 President Ronald Reagan proclaimed March “Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.” The deinstitutionalization movement of the seventies and early eighties had laid the foundation for significant social change, and the presidential proclamation called upon Americans to provide the “encouragement and opportunities” necessary for people with developmental disabilities to reach their potential."
