Juanita Henderson recently celebrated her 99th birthday and a special celebration is being planned at New Harmony Christian Church on Sunday, July 7, during the morning worship service (9 a.m.).
Family and friends are invited to join us for worship and will be given an opportunity to share thoughts and/or stories about Juanita.
The celebration will continue immediately following worship services with breakfast rolls, coffee, etc. in the church annex.
Juanita became a baptized member of the church in 1927 and has dedicated her life to serving her God, the church, her family, and the community-at-large.
Plans are also underway for “Growing in Friendship with Jesus” as the theme for this year’s Vacation Bible School. It will be held on Friday, July 19, beginning at 5:30 p.m. with a light supper being served and the lesson and activities to follow. It will re-convene on Saturday, July 20, at 9:30 a.m. and will conclude with a carry-in barbecue meal at noon that day (meat will be provided). The closing program will be held during church services on Sunday, July 21. All children in the community are invited to join us for this “barnyard experience”.
The youth group will be meeting on July 7 and July 21 at 3 p.m. at the church.
