Hemphill High School, Class of 2017, seniors honored

June 5, 2017

Thirty – Seventh (37th!) Senior Luncheon

The tradition of hosting the graduating seniors of Hemphill High School continues. Since 1980 the Methodist Women have provided a luncheon following the last graduation practice each May.   This year the luncheon was held on Wednesday, May 24.   It is a joy to interact with the seniors as they enjoy a last occasion to eat together before they embark on individual future plans. 

This year the congregation was invited to participate in congratulating these young people by writing a note or letter to someone selected at random. The cards were collected and with the gift of an FUMC writing pen were presented to each senior at the luncheon individually with good wishes and some hugs.  Thanks to all in the congregation who took part in this effort to identify personally with a senior. 

MW President Carole Teagle and Pastor Grant welcomed the class and Kazmine Godwin, one of the scholarship recipients and frequent attendee of FUMC gave the blessing before the meal.

The 74 seniors, their sponsors, senior teachers, and administrators enjoyed a bounty of food, beverages, and desserts. Such is the tradition as several teachers recalled their Senior Luncheon when they graduated from HISD.

Some of the many women who worked to decorate the fellowship hall and prepare the food worked quickly as students arrived. The 2017 senior class was extremely respectful and appreciative of the collective efforts of First United Methodist Church.

CALLING ALL VBS HEROES to First United Methodist Church in Hemphill

Cokebury’s VBS HERO CENTRAL is designed to introduce students to a deeper relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  This VBS is based on the Bible and the gospel of the living Christ.

* Students will discover their strength in God

           *Explore God’s mission for their lives

*Encounter epic adventures alongside biblical heroes

*Realize qualities that make them truly heroes in God

 

While at VBS, children learn Bible stories, meet new types of people, have a good time with friends, and enjoy fun activities they can’t have at home.  At VBS, children learn Bible verses, act out Bible stories, sing contemporary Biblical music, watch, and participate in skits, create crafts, play games in recreation, discover science activities, and have a healthy snack.

VBS also offers an opportunity for adults to grow as servant-leaders. There are many ways you can participate and help:

1) Pray.  Pray now that volunteers continue to come forward.  Pray for children to come.  Pray that we fulfill the opportunity to minister to the children.

2) Volunteer. Volunteer to help with creating decorations, providing supplies, preparing materials, taking photos, providing snacks/ snack ingredients, and of course, working with the children as a teacher or teacher’s helper.  There are many other ways not listed that you can volunteer.

3) Contribute.  Contribute with your prayers, your gifts, and your service.

Our VBS will be held on Monday, June 12 through Friday, June 16 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon Mark your calendars.  This is a wonderful opportunity for the children in Hemphill and Sabine County but also for your grandchildren who may visit you.  Call your children and share the dates; plan for your grandkids to share in VBS.  Let the VBS Directors, Janette and George Young, know so volunteers can be positioned in the best place.  The Youngs also need to know tee-shirt sizes for those working for VBS.

The craft leaders have asked for the congregation to save empty paper towel and TP rolls for a craft item for each budding hero.  Be aware of coming dates for a Decorating Party (color and cut out pictures, etc), of any snacks to be provided, and be certain to invite any children in your neighborhood or kids you know.  There will be classes for kids who are three by June 1st through kids going into the 6th grade.  Older students are wanted / welcomed / needed as volunteer youth helpers all week.

Our overall theme for Hero Central VBS is Psalm 34:14b, “Do Good! Seek peace, and go after it!”  In short, VBS is an invaluable opportunity to reach beyond the walls of FUMC into the heart of the community.  Won’t you help us?  Commit and pray for a successful year at VBS this summer.

A long line of guests wait patiently for doors to open last November. 

Be sure you aren’t left out in the cold… get your tickets now!

No matter what time of year it is, a fashion show can be a popular event. It’s fun for the people involved in putting it on, for the models walking the runway, and for everyone who comes to see it, especially if they’re watching friends and family members strolling through the tables.  Even if the models are unknown to the show-goer, a style show is like fitting pieces of a puzzle together. Each model reveals clothing that may reflect new or classic styles, shoes and handbags, jewelry, scarves and other accessories to complete “a look” that guests may want to emulate; a finished look that has all the puzzle pieces in the right place.

A turquoise flowered necklace completes the ensemble. 

As most East Texan women love to view fashions in a lovely setting, so do they love to enjoy delicious food as a prelude to a fashion show. The guys do too… don’t forget to buy your sweetie a ticket as a surprise lunch treat!  The luncheon menu will satisfy one and all as there is something for everyone, savory to sweet!  Additionally, over twenty door prizes will be won by lucky guests during “half-time.”  You may be one of the lucky ones who leave holding onto a gold bag filled with a special gift.

These models, Janice Gooch, Leslie Cure, and member Margaret Byers are “captured” enjoying a little down time the day prior to 2015’s premier event.  After chopping broccoli and onions and celery and bell pepper and whatever else was presented, these ladies enjoyed cutting up just a bit. This year promises more of the same… chopping and cutting… decorating and embellishing… cleaning up and gearing up for a fabulous time for the public AND the members.  You DO want to come and be part of a fun-filled day.  Call a friend or two, laughing is always more fun with a pal.
