Elected officials help with unexpected utility bill at Somerville Assembly

We have had some unusual weather. I hope everyone has enjoyed the sunshine and warm days.

We’re glad to report that Donna Orr is home after having knee surgery. He was able to attend church last Sunday. Prayers continue to go out for his complete recovery.

Prayers and love continue to go out for J.D. and Sally Williams.

A special thank you goes out to Somerville’s elected officials for their help on a $1,600 water/sewage bill at Somerville Assembly. The church received the exceedingly large utility bill due to an undetected water line leak. Mayor Darren Tucker helped out by approving a reduction on the sewage side of the bill. The church will be hosting a gospel singing in the near future to help offset the unexpected expense. The church congregation asks you to remember them in your prayers and thoughts. The date of the benefit singing will be announced at a later date.

A big hello goes out to our friends at Soul Harbor Baptist Church.

Prayers go out for Norman Dempsey who had foot surgery last week. Prayers and love also go out for Wanda Taylor, Colleen Moore, Neal G Freeman, Gertrude Wray and Frank and Martha Gravatt.

She has a brother, Dylan, and her grandparents are Pat and Dianne Harrison of Springville. This young lady will be greatly missed in the hearts of all who knew her. She was a wonderful Christian girl. Our love and prayers go out to the family and friends she left behind.

A correction on a column a couple of weeks ago pertaining to the Key twins:

Richard and Carol are their grandparents, not her parents. They visited their new grandchildren in Kentucky last week. Congratulations.
