The De Soto Methodist church had a great September bulletin. It had lots of great photos from their Vacation Bible School and information about their Fall Festival. If you want to help with the festival or have something to donate, contact Bernice Casey or Shelle Field.
The Methodist Silver Circle met for lunch on Monday, Sept. 12 and the men's group will meet for breakfast this Saturday at 7 a.m. The church also had a work day on Friday, Sept. 10 to start making things and getting things ready for the festival. The youth had a pizza party at the church on Sept. 7. At 7 p.m. next Wednesday, Sept. 21, Bill Whim will be presenting a program to the youth.
The De Soto Baptist church had a beautiful, patriotic service on Sunday to honor 9/11. Jeff and Richell Hodges were the worship leaders and they played their horns in the beginning and then sang a duet. All the music on Sunday was patriotic and there was a lot of red, white and blue around. It was also Grandparents' Day and there were a lot present. Rick Walker recently did some improvements on the parking area and we thank him. The ABW met at 7 p.m. last night and the Bible Study group will meet at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
