Cedar Hill Baptist 

Bro. Craigmyle’s morning message was from Acts 2 on Pentecost. Thanks to Maudie Williams for sharing with us in song in the evening service. Congratulations to our graduates as we celebrated with them Sunday evening.
Children join us tonight at 6:30 as we honor our fathers with craft, lesson, and game. If you need a ride or have questions call 484-5236 or 514-1594. Bible study/prayer meeting is also at 6:30.

Remember the Mason family in your prayers in the death of Kathryn. Also, remember the sick, those serving our country, our government leaders, and especially the lost.

Elk Lick Baptist

Bro. John’s message was on Mark 10:46-52, “Call on Him While He Is Near.” Bartimaeus was blind, he sat by the highway begging. When he knew Jesus was near, he called out, “Son of David, have mercy on me.” Jesus said, “Your faith has made you whole.” Our faith through Jesus will make us whole, body and soul.
Bonnie Woodyard and Angie Gaines sang, “Under His Feet.” Bonnie, Angie and Louise sang “Bigger Than Any Mountain.”
Prayer concerns: healing of the sick, shut-ins, missionaries, military, special prayers, unsaved family and friends. Thank you Lord for answered prayer, we know you are there even when they are not answered. Christians, pray our county votes against selling beer and alcohol.

Our next service night at Meeting the Needs will be 6-8 p.m. June 23.

Mount Pleasant Baptist

What a wonderful time in the Lord’s house we had Sunday with our brothers and sisters from Owenton Second Baptist.
Their choir, led by Pastor Chris Hagan, worshipfully sang, “I Am All That I Am,” “Learning to Lean,” and “He Keeps Blessing Me.” Bro. Harris’ solo, “His Eye Is on the Sparrow,” touched our hearts.
Bro. Chris’ sermon entitled, “My Light, My Salvation, and My Strength” from Psalm 27:1, taught us that the Lord’s light illuminates us with joy, prosperity, and happiness. His salvation has delivered us and is more sacred than rubies, diamonds, and gold. Once in Christ, always in Christ. His strength in our lives helps us go on through the trials and struggles of life. David had many dark times in his life. He said that rivers of water ran down his eyes. The Lord restored David and allowed him to be triumphant.
Congratulations to Matthew Doolin for graduating with a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown College. We are so very proud of you, Matt. Happy Birthday to Linda Haydon, Roy Prather, Jeremiah Sharon, and Eli Myers. Please pray for these dear ones: Miss Lenora Kelly Olds, Rebekah Gaines, Isaiah Columbia, Frank Burford, Vickie VonBokern, David Duncan, Neldia Vannarsdall, Max Bourne, and the family of Katherine Mason. Please pray for the wet/dry issue that our dear Owen County would remain free from the devil’s delight. 
Father’s Day is Sunday. Our vacation Bible school is next week from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. June 20-24 for ages 3 to 18. Please call the church if you need a ride. Save cat food and tuna fish cans for V.B.S. The V.B.S. commencement and picnic will be held at 6:30 p.m. June 26.
Our church-wide picnic and fireworks will be held at 6 p.m. July 3 at the Marston’s. Bring a dish and lawn chair. 

New Columbus Baptist

All this week we’ll be having a “Big Apple Adventure” as our vacation bible school continues through Friday, 6:30 to 9 p.m., with classes for all age-groups over 2 years. The V.B.S. commencement will be at 6 p.m. Sunday.
At 8:30 a.m. Sunday, our ladies will be providing a Father’s Day breakfast for the fathers and men of the church.
Pastor Brad Vincent’s message Sunday will utilize Ephesians 1:4-6 and be titled “A Father’s Adoption.” Father’s Day is meant to honor fathers. The Lord’s Day is meant to honor the father of every Christian. Join us Sunday as we honor our earthly fathers and the heavenly Father who gave us spiritual life.
Please remember to turn in all filled Care Net baby bottles Sunday to help this cause. There also will be a special Father’s Day offering Sunday to benefit the Oneida Baptist Institute.
We are asking everyone to group items for our WMU yard sale July 8 and 9, across the highway from the church. This sale is to augment the WMU youth camp fund. One more for your calendar: our revival will be July 25-29.

New Liberty Baptist

Bro. Emory’s message Sunday was “Why Church?” from I Thessalonians 3:1-10. The church helps us to be established in our faith, encouraged and equipped. We should never forsake the assembling of ourselves together. We invite you to join us for worship at 11 a.m. Sunday.

Old Cedar Baptist

We thank God for our church members and visitors who came out Sunday to worship and praise the Lord. We all should be thankful that we are able to come to church and offer up our blessings to the Lord. We have so much to be thankful for.
Special music was presented by “New Beginnings.”
Joy and Moe the puppet talked about the Ten Commandments.
Bro. James’ sermon was entitled, “The Choices of Life,” taken from Matthew 27.
Pilate is correct in his question, “What should I do with Jesus, the one called Christ?” Perhaps you, like Pilate, are curious about this one called Christ. What do you do with a man who claims to be God? What do you do with a man who knows the place and time of his death, yet goes there anyway?
You have two choices. You can reject him or you can accept him. You can journey with him. You can listen for his voice and follow him. Keep a clear vision of the cross on your horizon and you can find your way home.
At 7 Sunday night, New Beginnings practices. Wednesday night we are starting our House Fellowship at 7 p.m. in the home of Dee Wedding. If you would like for us to come to your home and offer up prayers, contact Jeannie at 382-6602.
Remember in prayer Rebekah Gaines, Gerald Kemper, George Cook, Bill Karsner, Ron Holland, Joe Stewart, Erwin Perry, David New and the rest on our extended prayer list.
Happy birthday to Amber Ward.

Owenton First United Methodist
Bro. Andy’s message, “Letting Go,” came from the book of Matthew. Sometimes we must give up worldly pleasures in order to have a closer relationship with the Lord. During the children’s sermon, the kids learned that through prayer and practice anything can be accomplished.
On June 25 the Owen County Historical Society will host an Open House. Journey’s End will be performing at the event at 1 p.m. Vacation Bible School is set for 10 a.m. July 9. Anyone wishing to help should contact Candace Young.
Happy birthday to Katelynn Morgan.

Salem Baptist

Special thanks to Bro. Jared and Chris Gullion for fixing our air.
Bro. Jared’s message was from Psalm 77, “Cry out to Jesus.” We all get to a point in our life of hopelessness and heartache and thank God we can call on him in our time of need. Yes, Satan will try his best to tear us down — but we have the spiritual power to overcome Satan. Cry out to Jesus. Come worship with us: Sunday morning Sunday school at 10 a.m., morning worship at 11 a.m., and Sunday night worship at 7 p.m.
Kids, watch for more information on V.B.S. from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. July 25-28 — “Big Apple Adventure.”
And neighborhood watch, keep an eye out for each other’s property.
