Mother Nature is doing it again

Waco News

WACO — Hi! Here we go again – just as the luscious warm, sunny days of late lull us into visions of spring-like summer days ahead, Mother Nature jerks us back into winter. Have you seen the forecast for later this week? Br-r-r-r.

Notes from Pastor Jones

From the desk of Tim Jones, pastor of Flatwoods Christian Church, we have these notes:

Thank you for your cooperation by signing up for photos to go into our next church directory. A few openings are left for Tuesday, April 30, at 9 p.m.

Special reminder: When you come in for portraits, there will be a donation container for God’s Outreach of Madison County. Giving a donation, even a small one, will qualify you for 5 percent off your portrait purchases. Everyone was signed up online, so that qualifies you for an additional 5 percent off.

Showing appreciation

Sunday , April 28, will be a special day to show appreciation to Tib Congleton. If you have a story to tell, we want you to participate.

The celebration will continue at noon with dinner in the fellowship hall. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Let’s go bowling

Sunday evening, 6 p.m., bring the whole family to Galaxy Bowling Center in Richmond for bowling.

National Day of Prayer

Coming soon is the annual National Day of Prayer service on May 2, 7 p.m., at Flatwoods Christian Church,

The senior choir from Waco Baptist Church will be singing. James Hardin, minister of Union City Baptist Church, will be the speaker.

‘30-Hour Famine’

Community Christian Church Youth Group is sponsoring “30-Hour Famine” to raise money for World Vision Organization, which feeds hungry children around the world. Their goal is to raise $7,000.

The kids fast for 30 hours, collect canned goods and work soup kitchens (while fasting) as well as sleep outside in cardboard boxes. This helps them “get a feel” for what these conditions are like.

The youth group has been able to feed many children the past five years and have even been among the top 10 youth groups participating.

If you would like to make a donation, contact Community Christian Church. The group would like to thank those who already have donated.

  • 04.18 Food .jpg It’s egg party time

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
