THE VILLAGE CrlURCH
Carrie Lee Weaver
■- Since- our last T/riting, many things have happened-here,
.CT.there, and ever^TP/here, Quite a number of special things
have come our way thru* the church vrork*
Our service on Easter Sunday was the scene at the empty
tomb v^hen'the three disciples nnd Uary came to see irhere
Jesus D.ay, and was presented by the j^'oung folk directed by
Kiss Louise Clay.
The first Sunday May, Mrs, Robert Burns brought the Junior Glee Club of Piedmont
over to vD.sit TO.th us and entertain us vfith'a program of songs. The Club of older
girls sing really good; but, be3J.eve you me, they vd.ll have to step fast to keep
rliead of those youngsters.
“Memories” was our Mothers* Day program, under the direction of Mrs, J.L, Osborne
and Mrs, Fred Richards, scenes, recalled by an older mother as she turned the pages
of her album, were brought out more vividly thru reading and song.
The "Sunsliine” class entertained the mothers of the class on mothers day with a
supper and a short program of music. Each class member had the' privilege to invite
her ov;n mother or some other mother to take her place. Special guests were Rev,
Cla;^^ and Mr. Schenck, Sr.
Boys, T/e r,re •tr^’lng to keep the church work going along while you are awayj so v/hen
5'ou come back you can go right on ser\djrig that others might have the right to.
worship God a As T/e^re talking about serving, let us thinlc about the words of Jesus
found in Matt. 20:28, Mark. 10:/!,A? cmd John 1^:13. He c,ame to serve—ministering
to those in need, humbling himself as servant, giving his life for you and me—
—^the true spirit of serxdce, '^Greater love hath no mrn.” How can we make a lesser
sacra.fice when Jesus gave his all?
If sometimes you aj;*e discouraged, look for the silver lining ajid count your many
blessings- see wha.t God hath done.
Our best wishes are vdth you-alJ. X7c.ys - al.ways,

Scripture Text - Proverbs 29th Chapter - 18th Verse,
.nVfflERE THERE IS NO VISIC^T, THE PEOPLE PERISH,"
If we aj:*e correct in our imderstand-ijig, vision, means, to see. It has been proven
by pa.st history, over and over again, that when people or nations lose their vision,
they perish, Tlie grave danger of locirig our vision, both literally and figuratively,
is aiv/a^/s present. Some disagree T.dth this line of thought, they contend, that once
we are gi^ren vision, we can.*t lose it, I need only to refer, you to history for a few
facts to prove'our text - China, was at one tiaie a very enli^^Jitened people, but thru*
loss, of ^n.sion, were reduced to their present status. The race of Jews, v/ere so
ncj^row ill their vision, that they could not see the God Head Trinity, that is God,
tho Father, Iho Son, God the'Holy Spirit, They claimed to know God, but rejected
Christ, therefore Jesiis saad, if you had known God, you'would have known me, through
their lack of faith and vision, to see this great truth, the Jews lost forever, their
