Marine Corps Birthday Celebration

All Marines are welcome to celebrate the Marine Corp Birthday on November 10th.  We’ll start around 6:00 pm.

 

A Marine is a Marine.  I set that policy two weeks ago – there’s no such thing as a former Marine.   You’re a Marine,  just in a different uniform and you’re in a different phase of your life.  But you’ll always be a Marine because you went to Parris Island, San Diego or the hills of Quantico.  There’s no such thing as a former Marine.

General James F. Amos, 35th Commandant of the Marine Corps

“Out of every 100 men, 10 shouldn’t even be there.  80 are just targets, 9 are the real fighters and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle.  Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back”

“The senior choir invites any member of the congregation who enjoys sinning to join the choir. ”

“A bean supper will be held Saturday evening in the church basement. Music will follow.”

“Thursday night — Potluck Supper. Prayer and medication to follow.”

“The pastor would appreciate it if the ladies of the congregation would lend him their electric girdles for the pancake breakfast next Sunday morning.”

“This evening at 7 pm there will be a hymn singing in the park across from the Church. Bring a blanket and come prepared to sin.”

“Next Thursday there will be tryouts for the choir. They need all the help they can get.”

“Irving Benson and Jessie Carter were married on October 24 in the church. So ends a friendship that began in their school days.”

“Ladies, don’t forget the rummage sale. It’s a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don’t forget your husbands.”

“Bertha Belch, a missionary from Africa, will be speaking tonight at Calvary Methodist. Come hear Bertha Belch all the way from Africa.”

“Eight new choir robes are currently needed, due to the addition of several new members and to the deterioration of some older ones.”

“National PRAYER & FASTING Conference: The cost for attending the Fasting and Prayer conference includes meals.”

“At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be “What is Hell?” Come early and listen to our bell choir practice.”

“When parking on the north side of the church, please remember to park on an angel.”

“The church will host an evening of fine dining, superb entertainment, and gracious hostility.”

” For those who have children and don’t know it, there is a nursery downstairs.”

“This being Easter Sunday, we will ask Mrs. Jones to come forward and lay an egg on the altar.”

“The eighth-graders will be presenting Shakespeare’s Hamlet in the Church basement Friday at 7 PM. The Congregation is invited to attend this tragedy.”

“The Associate Minister unveiled the church’s new tithing campaign slogan last Sunday: “I upped My Pledge – Up Yours.”
