The Guild Fall Coffee
On October 13, 2016, the Fall Coffee was held in the home of Jay and Dena Williams where we honored our new members. Our opening prayer was given by Anne Roper. The meeting was conducted by our president, Ruth Alford. Tommie Lejeune and Lynn Tyger chaired their event and all the fabulous food was prepared by Guild members. Kandy Brittain gave an overview of what is happening on the HBU campus. She also expressed the condolences of Dr. & Mrs. Sloan and Sharon Saunders as they were attending the services for Dr. Doug Hodo, the second president of HBU, and unable to attend the Coffee. A framed page of the 1610 Geneva Bible was presented to Dena Williams as a sincere “thank you” for opening up their home for our Coffee. Joshua Jones, a theology student, was the recipient of the Sue Sloan Scholarship last year. He gave a testimonial of how this scholarship has changed his life. His wife Rebecca and their 2-month old son Jeremiah were also in attendance. Chairs, or co-chairs, of all the committees gave informative updates encouraging members to attend our events and to bring a guest. We all left feeling very blessed and thankful for HBU and The Guild.
