50 Plus Club
The 50 Plus Club of Lauderdale met July 13 at the Lauderdale United Methodist Church for its regular monthly meeting. Seven members were present.
Dr. Tom Lawrence introduced the guest speaker, Margaret "Sis" Clarke, a well-known speaker on the Bible and its teachings. She, her husband and her son are residents of Lauderdale.
Clark talked about the coming of Christ and the church age we are going through now. She talked of the seven years of tribulation coming to this earth.
She said that things that we all are experiencing will be nothing compared to what is coming according to the Bible.
She talked of her trip to Jerusalem and the things she saw as she read the Bible. Everyone enjoyed her talk and invited her back to continue this subject.
A lunch was served of fresh vegetables from the members' gardens.
The next meeting will be Aug. 10.
