Sharon McGuire entertained The Keenagers, Pryor First Baptist Church’s senior adult group, both before and after their luncheon on March 19. She is the church’s financial secretary, and the seniors got to know her a little better from her presentation.
McGuire talked about her life and how much music had meant to her Christian walk. She discussed some Bible verses that held special meaning for her and handed out some cards with verses she’d
prepared for the Keenagers.
The group welcomed the Easter season as the decoration committee headed by Deloris Devers set out many bunnies, eggs, and flowers on the tables, as well as crosses.
The church’s ceramics group had made crosses to be delivered the homebound members this year. Each cross had a dogwood flower and leaves on it and was accompanied by an Easter card explaining the legend of the dogwood and how it relates to the cross and wishing the receipient a Happy Easter. The crosses were on display for some of the deacons in attendance to pick up to take to the homebound
individuals they visit.
Each Easter and Christmas, the ceramics group makes something for the deacons to deliver to the homebound members. In the past they have made frogs (which stands for Fully Rely On God), Christmas trees, bunnies, crosses, angels, Santa boots, Easter baskets with eggs, and snowbabies.
This year the ceramics group had some help from members of the S.E.E.D. classes. One of their S.E.E.D. elective options is ceramics taught by Deloris Devers. After they have finished their planned projects, some of them help with the current homebound project.
McGuire played the piano as the group gathered. President Annette Statham welcomed everyone and Chaplain Nelson Devers asked the blessing before the group lined up for the potluck luncheon.
Following the luncheon, McGuire gave her presentation then Statham made a few announcements before dismissing the group.
The Keenagers will be “on the road again” for the next two months. April 19 will see them heading for Bentonville, Arkansas, and Crystal Bridges. Then, in May they will visit Kountry Kitchen in Chouteau for Amish cooking.
