The Superior Express -

Four Ways from Northbranch


February 13, 2020

Sam and Alyce Gillett have been busy attending ball games. Last Tuesday they, along with Lily and Claire Walker, watched Jerrod Gillett play in the game against Sylvan - Lucas. Friday they traveled to Downs to watch Rock Hills play Lakeside. In the JV game they saw grandson, Ross Hutson, play for Lakeside and be high scorer. Then in the varsity game they switched allegiance and cheered for Rock Hills and Jerrod, who had a good game, unfortunately in a 1 point overtime loss. Saturday afternoon Lily and Claire went with them to see Luke Hutson play on the Lakeside youth basketball team.

Saturday evening Dereck Gillett brought two of his college football friends to visit with his grandparents, Sam and Alyce. One was from Kansas City area and the other from Seattle. Earlier in the day he had been showing them the farm and what work he had done on the farm.

Robin Rose travels to Hastings often as her father is quite ill.

Pastor Jon Harkness opened the Sunday morning worship service at Northbranch Friends by welcoming each one, giving announcements, followed by noting the prayer concerns. Special prayers were offered for each need. Musicians were Erma Dillon and Colleen Jeffery. Serving as ushers were Brad Jeffery and Tim Warner.

Pastor Jon's sermon text was Proverbs 13:12, using the NET version of the Bible. The subject was of “Hope.” “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is like a tree of life.” “Hope is the ability to hear the music of the future...” We often use the word 'hope' – how are we working towards it? God has a purpose for us being here, what are we doing? He will take us places that will help us accomplish His purpose. Open worship was observed, followed by closing prayer.

Sunday at 5 in the evening there are plans for a 'family fun night' at the Fellowship Hall. Everyone is welcome to come, bring your favorite games and a snack to share.

Following the church service Sunday, Tim and Wanda Warner dined at the cafe in Burr Oak, celebrating their wedding anniversary. Congrats to them!

Also, Kermit and Loyce Jeffery and Erma Dillon joined the busy dining place in Burr Oak.
