Believers Voice of Deliverance Church’s Annual choir anniversary was a huge success last Sunday.
Evangelist Willie Mae Springs was worship leader. There were four choirs who provided music for the service. The Rev. Jerome Kilgo sang two selections. Choir members looked beautiful in their red and black. The service was well attended.
May you continue to lift up your voices in praise to God. This is where Rev. James Springs is pastor.
There will be a three-day revival at St. Mary’s Baptist Church from Nov. 12-14.
The evangelist is Elder Colbert. Services will begin each day at 7 p.m. We extend a welcome to everyone. Rev. Jesse Williams is the pastor.
Last Wednesday and Friday, the volunteers of Roane Medical Center took a tour of the new hospital that will open in February 2013.
This is a huge building, and we volunteers are happy to be a part of it.
We wish Lucas Howard a speedy recovery. He is a patient in UT hospital and is in a coma (at the time of this writing). Let’s keep him in our prayers.

Others that I know who are blessed with another year of life: Rev. James Knaff, John Holmes, Deidre Siler, Randel McClain, Racheal Inman and Jeremiah Martin.
I (Louise Warmley) spent the weekend in Oak Ridge with my daughter, Dorothy Graham. We attended an Evening of Elegance at the Lakeside Grill Events Center in Oak Ridge, which was a tribute to senior citizens.
There was an hour of gathering music by Dave Anderson Sr. Mistress of Ceremonies was Pinkie Daniels. There was a moment of silence for our past members and families who have passed on.
Invocation was given by the Rev. Walter Ghosten. We all enjoyed a delicious dinner.
Speaker for this event was Edwena L. Crowe. She is director, Document and Property Management, B&W Y-12 LLC. Edwena holds a B.S. degree in civil engineering from South Carolina State University and a M.S. degree in engineering administration from the University of Tennessee. She is married to Charles Crowe and the mother of two children. They attend St. Mary’s Catholic Church. She is a great speaker and we all enjoyed her talk.
More than 135 guests attended this event. Wilbert Minter was the founder of this tribute to senior citizens, and we are thankful to him and his committee. May God bless you for a job well done.
The Oak Grove Baptist Church in Midtown, where the Rev. Paul A. Taylor Sr. is the pastor, would like to share news of a recent event held by their crochet ministry. The crochet ministry hosted a luncheon for the area ministers on Oct. 23. There were 17 ministers present at the luncheon. The luncheon also included prayer requests and prayer from the members of the class and ministers present.
This ministry began with four members from Oak Grove and has grown to 28-plus members with the addition of church and community members from all over Roane and surrounding counties. They crochet, knit and complete various other craft projects. They also teach beginners. More importantly, they fellowship together and give God praises.
The ministry held a craft sale on Nov. 10 at Roane County Park cottage.
The crochet ministry meets every Tuesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. They create beautiful projects by crocheting or knitting hats, scarves, sweaters, blankets, etc. They make hats for local people in need as well as other communities where there is a need. Some of the hats and other items have been sent as far as Haiti. Blankets, booties and hats sent to the premature babies at UT hospital has also been an ongoing project.
The ministry occasionally goes out to local restaurants to celebrate birthdays and other special events. There may also be times when they put aside their projects and just pray and give testimonies of God’s blessing. During the summer months and holidays, the children join the group for projects and activities of their own.
Everyone in the community is invited to be a part of this wonderful ministry.
