Thanks to Mickey and Nancy Sisson for the pretty arrangement of zinnias for the services Sunday at Phillips Mill Baptist Church. We had a number of visitors Sunday morning, coming especially to attend the baptismal service which took place before the message by pastor Robert Rayner who had the privilege of baptizing Grant and Miles Chafin, grandsons of Mr. and Mrs. Malcolm Chafin and Mr. and Mrs. Sam Scott. Our hymn of the month is “God Bless America.” Other patriotic hymns were also sung. The choir special was “Jesus Will Outshine Them All.” The boys’ father, David Chafin, prayed the intercessory prayer. Sincere sympathy is extended to all who have lost loved ones. The families of Mrs. Louise Glenn, mother of our Tignall news lady, Eudora LeRoy Huyck, who passed away, age 92, and Dr. Waldo P. Harris III, 84, known to many as the “Historian of Georgia Baptists,” come to mind. Dr. Harris appreciated having a Christian foundation and tried hard to pass it on. Guests during the weekend of Dan and Mildred Nunn McAvoy and Jerry McAvoy, were daughter Dorothy Ann, nephew Billy McAvoy, niece Mary McAvoy Hawes, and husband Marvin, and brotherin law, Tom Hardy. Phillips Mill Baptist Church held the monthly Wednesday night supper and get-together before prayer service Wednesday night. It was Marvin Hawes’ birthday and everyone attending got to sample the pretty birthday cake. Happy belated birthday, Mr. Marvin. Among Mrs. Mary Nell Taylor Denard’s recent visitors besides her children were Mrs. Gussie McAvoy and daughter-in-law, Mary Jane McAvoy, Mrs. Eunice Mansfield, Priscilla Maxwell, and Margaret Edwards. I see a for sale sold sign at the home of the late Henry and Myrtis Ogletree Callaway of Phillips Mill on the Greensboro Road.
