President O.T. Bradley called the meeting to order and welcomed everyone.  There were 40 members in attendance.  Devotions were delivered by Jean Koon.  Her topic covered New Year’s Resolutions using a recent “Dear Abby” post as a point of referral.  Scripture references from Isaiah 40:31, Jeremiah 29:11, and Revelation 21:5 reminds of God’s presence and provision waiting for us in 2020.

JoAnn Gunter opened New Business with several items to be discussed.

1,  Everyone was asked to check their contact information listed in our new 2020 Annual Membership Guide.  If any changes are needed, please make those changes known . 

2.  As members of each month’s food group meet to decide the meal, please be mindful that they will want to supply drink cups and napkins.  The Sunshine Club is allowed use of the plates and utensils provided in the Family Ministries Building unless they prefer to supply their own in addition to the cups and napkins.

3.  As members are recognized for their birthday each month, please raise your hand or stand so other new members may get to know you easier.

4.  JoAnn has received numerous door prize donations.  She has plenty to take us through at least April, possibly May.  At that time, we will address the desire to continue with door prizes.

Mercy Rain, a trio gospel music group, ushered in our 2020 entertainment.  They performed several inspiring songs including “Where Would I Go but to the Lord” and “Jesus Loves Me.”

Following our gospel singing presentation, we awarded our door prizes.  Charles Taylor won the Grand Prize crafted by Junius Craps, a giant snowman.

Charles Taylor offered a beautiful blessing of the meal.  We enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by the following members:  Mabel Burdett, Wanda and Lyndell Shealy, Mary Jo Hood, and Jean and Luther Koon.  Our meal included fried chicken, potato salad, macaroni and cheese, homemade bread, brown rice, creamed corn, pecan pie, cherry pie, and banana pudding.

Next meeting – February 3, 2020.  Our entertainment will be brought to us by Jerome Taylor.
