Be in prayer for the sick in the county, for our churches and North American missions. Beech Grove welcomes you.
Our pastor began a four-week series on “Calvary” with his first message taken from Isaiah 53. This marvelous chapter, written 700 years before the cross, demonstrates the reliability and accuracy of scripture. The chapter delineates the need of a savior, the suffering of the savior and the satisfaction of the savior. This section of scripture pressed upon our soul not only the physical suffering but the mental and spiritual suffering that Jesus endured for us.
We stand in awe of his satisfying work toward God the father. The surprising amount of snow that we received caused us to cancel our evening services.
We had over 25 youth to attend “Winter Jam” at Rupp Arena on Saturday evening. They reported it to be a great evening of music and praise.
Our annual Easter egg hunt will be Sunday at 2 p.m.
The community Good Friday service will be held at First Baptist on March 29, at 7 p.m. The service will be led by several of the pastors in our community. We invite you and your church family to come and be a part of this service as we reflect on the cross of Christ. The theme of the service will be “Responses to the Cross.”
We will be in charge at Meeting the Needs on Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m.
See you Sunday.
We are ready to welcome the signs of spring. God’s beauty can be seen all around as the flowers bloom and the buds appear on the trees. Take time this week to observe God’s masterpiece.

Monterey Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
Last Sunday, we welcomed four visitors from Frankfort, including one who attended Monterey Christian as a child. We were blessed they joined us on our Lenten journey. This season, we have been letting go of those things that get in the way of our relationship with God. Last week, we focused on idolatry, those things we lift up or to which we bow down that are not God, the only one truly deserving of all praise and honor.
As we enter into Jerusalem this Sunday, we celebrate with the story of palms but also focus on the Passion. We will read from Isaiah the tale of the suffering servant, to whom Jesus is compared.
As we let go of control, we will be reminded how Jesus let go and commended his spirit to the hands of Lord. The suffering servant and Jesus were only able to do so because they had confidence in God.
This witness can be a message to believers everywhere that true discipleship inevitably involved deep and profound loss. Not an easy lesson, yet we seek to lose our control, putting faith in the vindicating God. God did not forsake Jesus, and God does not abandon us. God never lets go, but we must.
We are called to let go that we may fully live.
Join us on our way to Jerusalem this Sunday. This church is at 88 Worth Street in Monterey with worship services at 11 a.m.
New Columbus Baptist
Everyone is invited to our church skating party Saturday, 2 to 4 p.m. at Charlie’s Roller Rink, near Cynthiana. There is a $4 skate rental fee.
Pastor Brad Vincent’s message Sunday will use John 12:1-19 as text and be titled “Praise Before the Storm.” Many people came out to see Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem for the last time. They laid palm branches in his path and shouted “Hosanna.” Within a week, their adoration would change and they would turn away from him. They would do nothing to halt his crucifixion. Devotion based only on curiosity or popularity fades quickly. Join us Sunday as we learn how we too can praise Jesus one minute and curse him the next.
Here is an open invitation for everyone to attend a unique baby shower Sunday afternoon, 2 to 4 p.m. for Drew Sullivan, son of Kyle and Rachael Wright Sullivan born last fall. Rachael is the daughter of Bruce and Rhonda Wright. She and her family attended our church until marrying Kyle when she moved to Texas. This shower is unique in that all gifts will be donated to CareNet of Northern Kentucky to aid in that agency’s ministry.
Owenton First United Methodist
Bro. Matt’s message came from John 12:1-8. We should love God and anoint him with all of our worth. Mary anointed God with very expensive perfume because she saw the worth in him instead of the value of the perfume. Jesus says that when we give him love and he returns it to us we should share that love with all people. We should especially share it with those who do not know him. God says that if we reach out to the poor and the needy we will be glorified.
We will have our annual Easter egg hunt Sunday at 1 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend.
Michael Stewart opened our service with prayer and reading of our prayer concerns.
We welcomed Bro. Rod Bell. His message was taken from Romans 7, “Religion, Love and Grace.”
In Romans 7, we see what battle Paul went through with sin. We need God’s law to know what sin is and his grace will save us and change us, so we can have a new heart and new nature.
God sometimes says no to protect us from harm and we always need him.
Be born again and let Jesus see you as a saint. You will always be a child of God. All the work was done on the cross.
Come down and worship with us. Our morning service is at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. with night services at 7 p.m.
