Reflecting upon the passing of Henry Collins, from Psalms 147:
Praise you the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; He heals the broken heart, and binds their wounds. He reckons the number of the stars; he calls them all by their names. Great is our Lord, and great his power: his compassion is infinite. Steve Rudolph
Special Christmas Eve Service:
As a gift to the Woods community, Hedges Chapel offered a special virtual Christmas Service on Christmas Eve. Thanks to Nancy Page, Kat Cooper and the many participants for this interactive story of the birth of our Savior in song and verse.
Christmas Angels and Holiday Food Basket Program:
Thanks to those who have adopted one or more of our 21 angels for 2020 and/ or provided non-perishable food or cash donations. The 11 families we helped had been identified by Starting Points from the Pleasant View Elementary School area in nearby Morgan County. The food provided a nice meal as well as supplies to utilize the leftovers and stock the pantry during these difficult times for 46 individuals.
We are proud to be a part of such a generous community. Donations were received from and angels were adopted by members of the congregation as well as those in the immediate community. Thanks again to you all!
