The Wisdom Warriors for Christ of Beulah Baptist Church met Nov. 14 at the church fellowship hall. There were 20 members in attendance.
Randy Autry shared his thought for the day with the group on being thankful. Being grateful and thankful should not be something we do one day out of the year. Take time every day to enjoy where you are in your life and count your many blessings. Being truly thankful means acknowledging you had absolutely nothing to do with your salvation. Scripture came from Ephesians 2:8-9 — “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast.”
The food drive, sponsored by the Wisdom Warriors in October, netted 320 pounds and will be given to the DUMA food pantry to assist with their holiday distributions to needy families. Director Todd Snyder indicates the distributions to families continues to increase weekly.
On Nov. 14, the Wisdom Warriors honored the members of the DAV Chapter 74 with a meal of grilled chicken, buttered potatoes, green beans, baked beans and desserts. They said they are so honored to serve these men and women who sacrificed so much to serve us and our country.
On Dec. 8, the group will travel to Denton Ridge in Linden as a Christmas outing to enjoy the Christmas lights, nativity scene, antique farm equipment and, of course, Santa and his workshop.
They will continue to volunteer at the DUMA food pantry the third Friday of each month. They will also visit Liberty Commons Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Benson on the first Thursday of each month to share songs and a time of devotion with the residents.
The Wisdom Warriors meet the second Tuesday of each month and anyone over the age of 55 is welcome. For more information, call (910) 892-8223.
