Today's Features

  • Our church is made up of volunteers. No one gets paid. We have all the necessary things but we don’t have a piano player. We are still praying for one who will strictly play because they love the Lord enough that they like to make a joyful noise unto the Lord.

  • A lot happened in Spencer County during 1948-49. Of Course, things happen around these parts every year, but for some reason, the here-to-fore mentioned two-year period included events that beg for recollection.

  • Old Gospel Barn Gospel Sing 

    The Old Gospel Barn, located at 11286 Louisville Road (Hwy 31E), Cox’s Creek, will be having a gospel sing Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Performances will be by Terri Milby from Greensburg, and the Cumbos.  Admission is free. Plan to come and bring your family and friends.

    Senior Center activities

  • Songlin Fei has spent two years delving into the backgrounds of nearly 80 of Kentucky’s invasive plant species, not to lay blame for their presence, but to gain a historical perspective that could provide answers for the future.

    “We’re seeing some very interesting things,” said Fei, assistant professor in the University of Kentucky Department of Forestry. “For instance, a species like bush honeysuckle – we had it in the 19th century. The earliest specimen in a Kentucky herbarium collection is from the 1860s.”

  • I know that New Years day has passed, but every day is a new day, a new opportunity to re-imagine the future.  And it is always exciting to seek out God’s vision and plan for our lives and for His Church.  It is exciting to consider that even our greatest dreams are tiny compared to what God can really do.

  • District Board Meeting

    The Spencer County Cooperative Extension Service District Board will meet on Monday beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Spencer Co. Extension office, located at 66 Spears Drive.  Items of discussion to include working on the 2010-11 fiscal year budget and election of officers.

    SCBA meeting

    The Spencer County Business Association meeting is today at 9 a.m. at the Elk Creek Realty office in Elk Creek (across from the water tower).

    Democratic forum

  • As we look at the book of Acts we see Paul on trial for being a Christian. The first hearing was before Felix and then before Festus. The way I read it neither one of these wanted to hear him and when Paul appealed his case to stand at the judgement of Caesars Court where King Agrippa would hear him, as we look at this hearing we see Paul had no lawyer but represented himself.

  •  Abraham Lincoln had a connection to Spencer County that few people know about and although it may seem slight, we’ll take it.

    “Honest Abe” had a first cousin and second cousin in the county, who are buried in Saint Benedict Catholic Cemetery near Settler’s Trace Road.

    Margaret J. (Lincoln) O’Nan was his first cousin and Jane M. (O’Nan) Campbell was his second cousin. The All Saints Catholic Church in Taylorsville was originally Saint Benedict.

  • With Ol’ Man Winter bringing cold days and frosty nights to the state, the temptation to warm one’s toes at a wood stove’s blazing fire can be too much to resist. But according to the National Ag Safety Database, heating equipment is the No.1 cause of home fires. So safety precautions should be taken by those wishing to heat their homes with a wood stove.

  • 1 Corinthians 7:1-9 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
