Today's Features

  • Spencer County was well represented at the State 4-H Dairy Judging Contest on Tuesday, June 26, at the University of Kentucky Dairy Farm.

  • One day I was not doing much, so I decided, well, I will write an article. I chose a topic and started to write and after a while I saw that I could not put one together. I had wadded up two and thrown them away before I really realized that something was wrong.
    I was trying to write on my own strength instead of Jesus’ strength. When I read those articles they sounded awful.
    Sometimes we as Christians want Jesus in our life when we have nothing else very important to do. But I think we all know that Jesus wants the first and the best from us.

  • Here it is again, the Fourth of July, Independence Day. Every year we set aside this day for families to gather, for fireworks to fly, to simply celebrate the freedom that all Americans share.
    Our freedoms were won with the blood and toil of our founding fathers. Our freedoms have been maintained with the sacrifices of hundreds of thousands since. We have learned to apply our freedoms to men and women of all races, though we struggle with those things still.

  •  

    Mount Eden Christian Church will feature the “Journeymen” during its 11 a.m. service on Sunday.  The church is located at 12441 Mount Eden Road in Mount Eden. The community is invited to attend.

  • More years ago than I care to remember, my wife and I were living in California and we took a trip to the Sequoia National Forest and then up to Yosemite.  Both of these are beautiful amazing places that I would recommend highly.  What I would not recommend is the route we took between the two.

  • Little Union Baptist to host VBS
