Loyal Devoir Society hosted May meeting

The Loyal Devoir Society of Central Christian Church in Seymour met May 23 with Paula Stafford presiding.

Stafford thanked Janice Brock and her group for hosting the meeting, which was the group’s birthday party with cake and ice cream.

Brock gave devotions on “Guardian Angels” and closed with prayer.

Both the minutes and treasurer’s report were read and approved.

Stafford thanked the people who brought in baked goods for the bake sale and helped with the sorority dinner. Both were a success.

Betty Guinn and Carolyn Bruce cleaned the closet and bought new tablecloths.

Brock conducted a memorial service for five faithful members who passed away in 2016-2017. White candles were lit for Rachel Findley, Dee Plumer, Mary Schleibaum, Ruth Sweany and Jane Coryell.

She asked members to share memories of them. A poem and prayers were included in the service. The candles were extinguished as she read the names of each one. The memorial notes will be kept for future services.

The meeting closed with the Mizpah Benediction.
