Cherokee Church of Christ and Cherokee Home for Children hosted several hundred at an “Early Christian Worship”. After being run off by the soldiers while trying to worship in public the Christians made their way to the “catacombs” and worshipped safely. The singing was beautiful and such praise. Michael McCoy brought the lesson. After the worship a hamburger dinner was served.
Delton and Valerie McGuire just found out they are going to be grandparents in June.

The Cherokee Youth Football Host Games went off with a bang! The cold weather did not stop the fourteen teams that played throughout the day. The Cherokee flag team started the games off. Joshua Reyes made two touchdowns but the team took a loss to Richland Springs 12-20. The final game ended in an overwhelming excitement for the Cherokee tackle team. They blasted Blanket with a 46-0 final score. The entire day was a success, only possible with the help of the many volunteers that came and went or stayed all day. Special thanks to several contributors: Highland Lakes Surgery Center, Cooper’s Bar-B-Q for the sausage, Reyes Family, Morrison Family, Tedder Family, Devin & Stacy Everett, Ronnie Graves for refereeing flag games, everyone helping work the chains, concession stand and gate, Dixon Seider and Doug Suggs for calling the games, ALL the parents of the flag and tackle football players and cheerleaders, Cherokee ISD, and the MANY volunteers not mentioned by name. Thank you! Our winners of the gift card drawings were announced; Larry Morrison and Rita Partin won cash gift cards for $100 and $150. The flag team will advance to the playoffs to be held in Richland Springs, Saturday, October 17th at 9:00am.

The following was submitted by Devon Everett:
The tackle peewee team ended their season with a big win. JD ran the reverse for a touchdown and made several good catches. Kellen and Uriel teamed up and scored several touchdowns on the quick pitches. Michael handled the 200lb nose guard with no problem and made several good plays on offense. Carter made a big hit on a play that turned Kellen loose for a score. Tori tore the defense up with her blocking and Lexi made several good plays on offense and defense. Ethan made a good catch and played defense very good. Overall, the kids learned alot and played their hearts out. Thanks to all the parents and the kids, it was fun.
