Auction at Trinity Southern Baptist Church

Trinity Southern Baptist Church is having an auction to help raise money for our Kingdom Fund. We have lots of items left over from an inside yard sale the church had a few weeks ago. The fund is going to be used to help build a family life center. We will have bigger Sunday School rooms and kitchen, and a basketball court, etc. The above photo is a flyer I made for my class. We are also auctioning off theme baskets from each Sunday School class. Watch The Falmouth Outlook for more details. Trinity is located at 309 East Shelby Street (corner of Shelby and Broad) in Falmouth.

Out of state visitor

My cousin Mona is in from Alabama. She is my cousin on Mom's side. We haven't been able to see Mona for a long time. She lost her son Brandon over a year ago. So Mother's Day was a little tough for her this year, not having him and being out of state and not being with her other kids. But we've been thankful to have her here with us. I grew up with Mona but as a teenager, she and Aunt Ruthie and Uncle Troy moved away.

Children's Church

Buford and Fern Poe doing Children's Church.
The children love this time during church!

These two are so good with kids.

Mother-Daughter Banquet

The above table was done by Sandy Barker.

My very dear friends.

Mine and Holly's table.

Amy Barnes' table.

This was the first year I was asked to decorate a table for the mother-daughter banquet. At first I was a little apprehensive, but then I was excited. I love doing this kind of stuff! Holly and I used blue candles, plastic tablecloths (which simulated the water) and tableware, tiny plastic toys, glass beads (rocks or whatever you call those things), seashells, starfish candy dish filled with "Lifesaver" mints, a treasure chest and more. Unfortunately, Holly couldn't come because she had to go to a girls night out with the Girl Scouts in Wilder. At least my friends were gracious enough to sit with me at my table. lol.
