The Keenagers of First Baptist Church were honored to have the Rev. Bob Pittman, guest speaker, at their February meeting. Pittman also preached the revival at First Baptist.
His text was from Psalms 37:35 and his topic was "I have been young and now I'm old." He said there were three general rules about life. First is the Relationship with God, second is Glorious Resources'with Life and third, Greatest Relationship is with God. He spoke with a smile and entertained the audience.
Lee Hill opened the meeting with a song, "I'm Pressing on the Upward Ground." Loren Hildebrandt gave the devotion. His topic was on ''Love.'
The group enjoyed a barbecue sandwich, slaw and chips. Hostesses were the Keenager officers. Frank Farmer and Neil Schoonover greeted the members and guests as they arrived. LaRue Norris and Joyce Smith registered the guests.
February birthdays were Roger Benton, Dale Culp, Dot Mims, Kitty Norman, and Betty Shiflett. The group sang Happy Birthday to the honorees as Norma Jean Martin accompanied them at the piano. Door prizes went to Roger Benton and Helen Sewell. Visitors were Shirley Crosby, Floyd Crosby, Irene Cox, Stephen Tyus, Clint Chafin, Sean Burch and Johnny Radney.
Recently the Keenagers enjoyed a surprise trip to parts unknown and wound up going to Pavo, Boston, Dixie, Barwick and Thomasville, eating at the Red Lobster. We got educated at the Thompson's Hog Farm in Dixie, a lesson in raising hogs, cutting up the meat, etc.
The next Keenager meeting will be on Tuesday, March 25, at 11:45 a.m.
