October Meeting and Laity Day Planning

The meeting with Brother Galloway concerning Laity Day (see last post) was discussed at Tuesday's Sisterhood meeting. Between us we were able to get most of the folks suggested for the program.
As promised, I revisited the repast for Laity Day with him as some of the ladies at the meeting suggested. It was suggested that if a repast was desired, donations should be made to provide the food since no money was allotted in the church's budget. I suggested that some donate parts of a small menu like finger sandwiches, sheet cake and punch.  Sister Nona suggested the lady who has done catering for us in the past. The last such venture with her cost about $200 or more. It was suggested that the Sisterhood members donate $10 each to make this happen and ask the Brotherhood to do the same.

However, after speaking with Brother Galloway,  it makes more sense to stick with the original plan as decided in the planning meeting. Their membership has been tapped for another event and there is not the same number of active members he had a few months ago. There were about 8 members of Sisterhood present. That would mean we could raise a possible $80-- far from what would be needed for a caterer. Original plan: No repast. Final plan: No repast.

VP Sister Nona will serve as the Sisterhood rep at Laity Day. My quarterly checkups at MD Anderson requires that I travel to Houston on that day.

The Sisterhood was informed of the program and agreed that members will wear black.

We agreed to send something for Sister Lenora Benard's services and lift Sister McKnight in prayer. We need to keep Peggy Wallace in our prayers as well.

Kairos #67 is scheduled for the end of this month. Team membership is still available. Visit the website at listenlistenlovelove.com for the schedule and for the application. There is also an application for attending the graduation that we call "Closing Ceremony." Closing will be held on Sunday, November 3, 2019 at 2:00PM.  Sisterhood members are invited. Applications should be turned in ASAP as they must be screened and processed by DOC weeks in advance of the event.

Cookie baking will take place at Woodlawn Baptist Church this time. The address is 5805 Jones Creek Road. If you cannot bring cookie dough, parchment paper, ziplock bags, printer paper boxes, just bring willing hands and stay as long as your schedule allows. The dates are October 21 and 22.

At our November meeting, which will be on Veteran's Day, November 11 at 6:00PM, we will have a potluck dinner. Members may receive a 'Remind' text with  a link to 'SignUp Genuius .'

The next arts outing will be in December to see Langston Hugh's "Black Nativity." Go to this page and order your ticket for the December 14 showing:

We'll leave from the southern parking lot at 6:45 PM. To meet us there, the production will be at

Also for December, instead of gifts for each other, each member will be asked to bring items for packets for the homeless. Check your inbox for a Signup Genius notice. We will have another potluck and prayer circle. December 9 is the 2nd Tuesday in December.

 The membership was reminded to get calendar info/ideas to me ASAP.

Laity Day and Reminder

Meeting is Tuesday, October 8 at 6:00 pm.

I  met with Brother Galloway and Brother Cain. Laity Day is on for 10/27 at 3pm. Brother Galloway and I asked Brother Cain if he would volunteer to be the speaker. With some cajoling, he agreed.

The theme is "The Disciples Coming Together." The Scripture is Hebrews 10:25.
Suggested to help: Mission/Vision statements and Great Commission-- Kiyana and Quincy McKnight.
Prayer: Deacon McGuire
Greetings/Occasion : Sister Wicker
Litany: Brother Booker
Special guest selection : Ceirra Fountain  (if possible)
Intro of Speaker: Brother Baskin
Brother Galloway will contact men. Sister Michael will contact women.
If you have missed your message or call, please contact one of us.

The only way there can have a following repast is if there are volunteers to donate and serve cake and punch. There is no money in the budget for this.

Those of you with mobile phones should have received a text to join the 'Sisterhood Remind.' You do not have to have the app on your phone to receive Remind texts. If you received the request via email, you will have to use your mobile phone to receive the messages.

As with this message and others, we need a volunteer to call the ladies who are without emails and cell phones.

If you have not done so, look in the right --> sidebar, type your email address into the "Follow By Email" box and you will automatically receive notices each time this website is updated.

Reminder: Working Late Lunch at Applebee's and Team Formation

This is a reminder from our Wednesday, September 11, 2019 post which read:

"At 4:30 PM on Friday, September 27, we will have late lunch or early dinner at Applebee's Restaurant on Airline Highway at Old Hammond. We will leave the church at 4:00PM or meet you there at 4:30!"

This will be a working meal in which we need to make plans for Laity Day and next year's calendar of activities for the Sisterhood. 
There may be a volunteer sign up at Sign Up genius.

Meanwhile, there a need for more African Americans to serve more African Americans in Kairos Prison Ministry. It does not work like the devil would have you imagine but you can see how it does by attending the first team formation meeting Saturday 8:30 at First United Methodist Church 930 North Blvd. Visit the website listenlistenlovelove.com to see more ways to help. The prayer chain link is at tinyurl.com/kairos67.

Change of Movie Venue

Some of you have heard of the news report about Movie Tavern and contacted me concerning this. I looked up the other movie venues where The Overcomer is playing. Perkins Rowe is playing later at 7:10PM. I am supposed to try to see matinees but I will see it with the group here.

 If you can help give a ride, please be at the church at 6:20. We will leave at 6:30PM.
