For the wages of sin is death,
but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Louisiana Baptist Disaster Relief kitchen team that cooks for other volunteers needs some help. Contact Bro. Stan Statham in Franklinton or Bro. Gibby McMillan to volunteer for any length of time.

Please continue to pray for those being impacted by Hurricane Sally and those still dealing with a new way of life/living since Hurricane Laura. As thankful as we are that these storms did not hit our area, we still have to realize they hit another area. Consider what you can do to help these people in a time of need.

Two obituaries – I taught all four of the Williams children at school and both of the Lea girls piano lessons. There have been many deaths lately.
Clyde Gerald “Jerry” Williams
February 24, 1943 – September 14, 2020
Clyde Gerald “Jerry” Williams passed from this world peacefully on September 14, 2020 at his home in Culpeper, VA. He was born February 24, 1943 in Independence, Louisiana and was 77 years old. Jerry married Faye (Jenkins) on June 21, 1963 and together they raised four children, Jerri Faye, Lee, Terri, & Len. He spent many years in Louisiana where he worked as a barber, carpenter, and dairy farmer. He moved his family to Virginia in 1987 where he lived until his death.
During his brief battle with cancer, many dear friends traveled thousands of miles to see him, which brought him and his family great comfort.
Jerry is survived by his wife, Mary Faye Williams (Jenkins), Culpeper, VA; 2 daughters, Jerri Faye Pevey (Dennis) and Terri McClure (Steven); 2 sons, Lee Williams (Jill) and Len Williams (Jamie); grandchildren D.J. Pevey, Emily Pevey Haase (Tony), Wyatt Carroll, Garrett Carroll, Sydney Williams, Lydia Pevey, Margaret Williams, Ruby Williams, Clayton Williams, Audrey Williams, and Ila Williams; great grandchildren Ryleigh, A.J. & Elijah Haase. Jerry also leaves behind a special cousin, Melanie Patterson (Bankston) who remained by his side and provided support to his family throughout his brief illness.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Joseph Elmus Williams and Clara Eva Brashears (Bankston), his brother, James Robert Williams, and an infant son.
Memorial services will be scheduled at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to Hospice of the Piedmont, 675 Peter Jefferson Parkway, Suite 300, Charlottesville, VA 22911.
