    Risen Lord movie night

  • 1 John 4:7-21 – Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herin is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

  • When I was growing up, I heard about David the shepherd boy slaying the giant with a sling. I never could understand how this could happen because I tried throwing one of these things and could not hit anything that I threw at.

    When I grew older and accepted God as my Savior, now I can see how this happened. All David had to do is throw the stone and God did the rest.

    The Bible says David was a man after God’s own heart. Even though David was extremely close to God, one night he underestimated the power of Satan.

    Women’s Bible Study

  • Two weeks ago I asked “what more Mother Nature?”  Well, another gusty wind storm was served up adding to the collection of debris left by the ice storm.  Some serious questions are coming in about what to take out and what to try and save.  I am not a certified arborist but I can pass on the guidelines that certified arborists are taught when it comes to tree assessment and risk management.  These criteria may help you decide what to do now and in the future.

  • This past Sunday I was leaving church after the morning services I was truly blessed.  Several folks were gathered around discussing their faith.  They were talking about their Sunday school lesson and drew me into their conversation.

  • Women’s Bible study

    The women’s ministry at First Baptist Church will be conducting the Bible study titled “Esther, It’s Tough Being a Woman,” by Beth Moore.  Moore pulls back the layers of history and shows how very contemporary and applicable the story of Esther is to women today. This 11-week study begins Monday, February 23.  Two sessions will be held:

    9:15 -11:15 a.m. First Baptist Church

    6:30 - 8:30 p.m.  at the home of Charlotte Nedros

    Parent support group

    Do you have a child or youth with an emotional, social or behavioral diagnoses?   Do you want support, friendship and the comfort of knowing that you’re not alone? 

  • The recent ice storm was a good indication that the harsh months of winter have undoubtedly arrived, but the freezing temperatures and loss of electricity is not all that is to blame for a difficult start to the New Year. The tight economy has put a lot of people struggling just to keep food on the table.

    This problem is one of many that have encouraged members of the community to find a solution that can help meet some of the most basic needs in Spencer County with the help of Dare To Care.

  • Public comment welcome

    The proposed Comprehensive District Improvement Plan and the proposed Mission/Vision/and Belief Statements can be found on district website for public comment at www.spencer.ky12.ky.us.

    Free college credit

    The Shelby County Area Technology Center and Jefferson Community and Technical College – Shelby Campus are offering an informational meeting Thursday at 6 p.m. to find out how many free college credit hours your son or daughter has already earned in high school for college.

  • I have heard a lot of people say, I have been too mean - God won’t forgive a person like me, or you don’t know about all of the bad things I have done, or if I accept Jesus as my Saviour I don’t know if I could stop doing the things I do today, I know I couldn’t give up drinking or smoking or the other bad things in my life. If things like this are running through your mind, the only place they are coming from is the devil. He is the author of lying and confusion.

  • A fish-out-of-water romantic comedy, “New In Town” stars Renee Zellwegger as Lucy Hill, a Miami businesswoman sent to the upper Midwest to overhaul and slash the work force at an underperforming junk-food factory.

    Career-minded Lucy isn’t prepared for the biting cold, the quaint small-town customs or the colorful characters she encounters—especially fireman Ted Mitchell (Harry Connick Jr.), who also happens to be the factory’s labor-union rep.

  • Two aquaculture workshops will be offered by Kentucky State University Cooperative Extension for those who are involved with or might be considering small-scale aquaculture.

  • Today I will write an article on tithing.

    One weekend we were in Nashville Tennessee and I was leading a small group in this church. We have some questions we ask the people. I ask the question what would you like to happen in your life this weekend?

    One elderly woman spoke up really quick and said I would like to win the lottery. When I looked at her and said, Really, she responded of course I would give God his part. It made me wonder what God’s part was.

    Now let’s take a look at what the Bible says.

  • One year ago

    • Taylorsville Lake Marina owner Javon Montgomery introduced a multi-phased improvement plan that could include additional parking, increased launching ramp space, additional courtesy docks, a wider access road, a closer overflow parking lot and a public beach. The plan was supported by Spencer County Fiscal Court with a resolution and forwarded to state officials.

    • Superintendent Chuck Adams announced he was forming a committee to look into the expansion of tuition-based preschool.

  •  Some of the best native American artifacts found in Spencer County have been collected in the Waterford area.

     It is possible that a mysterious find there could be the most incredible yet.

     There are several piles of rocks off Kentucky 44 that have Waterford residents wondering if they could mark the locations of Indian graves or be the result of farmers clearing rocks from fields.
