Greetings from the Wesley Smith Chapel Community!
I would like to make a correction on an error that was made on the name of Mother Maxine Steven who was a she and not a he and was a lifetime member of Goshen Disciple Church and a longtime usher there. She served on the church’s kitchen committee. The family of Maxine Stevens would like to send a very special thank you to each and everyone for your many prayers, your phone calls and your thoughts during the time of her passing.

Until next week, remember lets go to the election boards and vote like your life depended on it. Remember to wear your mask, stay 6 feet apart from others, use and keep sanitizer in your pocket. Check on the elderly at all times. It is so bad for them to be in the house by themselves and die alone. Check on them.
