The Women of the Henning Church of God met on Mar. 6 in the church fellowship hall for their monthly meeting.
President Carole Spencer presided and Marty Burns led in prayer. Dyan Hefner gave the devotion, “I’m a Daddy’s Girl.” In this devotional this daddy’s girl enjoyed hunting with her father and grandfather except for the early hours. Her father picked a sky- scraper tree for her to snuggle against the big roots to take a nap. The branches swayed and it was tall and wide. The church should be like this tree. It should be rooted deep in the love of Jesus reaching out to those who are placed in our path.
She also shared about Cohen Bramlee, a young child who has basically an undiagnosed disease and many medical issues. No matter what kind of day he has before he goes to sleep he tells his mother, “Best Day Ever.” She shared about Super Cohen’s Best Day Ever Project. The Bramlee family are trying to get a random act of kindness and documenting it for every state. #SuperHeroCohen #BestDayEverProject
Joan Vance, missionary education co-chair, shared about St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone is supposed to wear green on this day. St. Patrick was born in England and at age 16, he was captured by pirates from Ireland and taken there. He was held in slavery and was a shepherd. He became a Christian and sometime later he heard a voice telling him to walk 200 miles to a ship. He did this and it took him back to England where studied with a cleric and became a missionary. He then went back to Ireland. He used the Shamrock to explain the Trinity, three in one, God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
