The Grace Willing Workers met recently at Centennial Fellowship Church at White Hall.

The meeting was called to order by President Debbie James. She welcomed 24 members and three visitors.

Lucy Meeks gave the thought of the day: “Stress is the trash of modern life. We all generate it, but if you don’t dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life.”

The Homemaker’s Creed was read by Bettye Johnson. The handy hint for the day was, “To relieve stress, stop, relax, and take a deep breath. Then think about it.”

The inspiration was read by Kaye Richardson: Psalms 69:1, “Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.”

Sabrina Self-Gwin called the roll by asking each member and visitor, “How do you manage stress in your daily life?”

The program, “Managing Stress” was presented by Kaye Richardson. She talked about turning challenges into blessings.

As a fundraiser the club is selling tickets for a chance to win an afghan. The drawing will be May 10. Tickets are $1 and may be purchased from any of the Grace Willing Workers Club members.

As a community service project, the club is collecting food items for the food pantry for the Transformation Project.
