PAPE CELEBRATES MOTHER’S DAY – On Mother’s Day, Carl Nelsen opened out Sunday School hour with the hymn, “A Christian Home.” He then gave a brief history of two mothers in Scripture, Hannah the mother of Samuel, and Mary the mother of Jesus. We sang “Happy Birthday” to Pat Martin and Alivia Bray. We welcomed first time visitor, Greg Smith, from Aurora, CO, son of Jack and Carole Smith. Brother Dennis titled his message, “Honoring our Mothers” and he spoke of the women in our lives and how we need to honor them every day of the year, not just on Mother’s Day. After the service, Pape Christian Church mothers and daughters, grandmothers, cousins, aunts and friends gathered to commemorate the day.
