  • It’s been called the War of Northern Aggression, the Civil War, the War Between the States, and the War of Rebellion. Perhaps the most poignant name given to this tragic time in our country’s history is the Boys’ War. Boys, some as young as 12 and from all areas of the country — including Owen County — joined the fight. Although they were familiar with firearms and their bodies were hardened by toil, nothing could prepare these young men for the carnage, disease, and devastation wrought by war. Owen countians James Mason, W.E.

  • When Katie Ashcraft tripped in a manhole and wrenched her back during a visit to Knoxville last summer she anticipated going out of town to visit doctors and orthopedic specialists in order to regain full use of her leg.
    But Ashcraft, of Owenton, soon learned that she could receive all the care and rehabilitation services she needed right here at home.
    “I originally injured my back in high school doing gymnastics and cheerleading,” Ashcraft explained. “This summer, when I fell into a manhole, I aggravated the old injury and it required physical therapy.”

  • A team from Owen County High School participated in the “We the People … The Citizen and the Constitution” state competition that took place Jan. 24 in Lexington.
    In competition, high school teams participate in mock congressional hearings that require them to use their understanding  of constitutional principles to defend positions on historical and contemporary issues.

  • Mary Gamm and Paige Heuser, second-grade students at Owen County Primary School, each spent a day shadowing Principal Sharen Hubbard after winning the opportunity at the school’s annual silent auction at the fall festival.

  • Bro. Jared’s message was “The Ultimate Forgiveness” from John 8:53-59 and John 10:9-10.
    So many times the devil keeps us from doing God’s will in our life, because we won’t forgive ourselves and put our past behind us.
    Jesus bought and paid for all our sins, so accept it and get on with His work in this lost and dying world.
    The two “A”s are: Ask – for God’s forgiveness; and Accept – God’s forgiveness.
    Thanks to Bro. Matt for a wonderful baby dedication for Aiden and Arron. We are so blessed to be entrusted to love and watch this beautiful family grow.

  • The Rev. Wotier’s message, “The Light Is On,” was taken from John 8:12-16. Jesus Christ is the most significant person who has ever lived. No matter how you approach it, no one has had more impact on human history. What impact does God’s Light have in our lives? God’s light gives us life — without Him we fail to thrive. God’s light reveals, it enables us to see things hidden. God’s light guides, the Lord will guide us continually. God’s light banishes fear, the Lord is my light.
    The deacon of the month is Danny Jacobs.
    At 7 tonight, we’ll have our business meeting/prayer meeting.

  • We were glad to have some special guests with us from Frankfort last week. It was also wonderful to have Mrs. Mills play the organ for us again. Bro. Andy’s message, “The Beatitudes of Christ,” came from Matthew 5:1-12. Blessed are the meek for they will inherit the Earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. How far are we willing to go to hear the word of God? During the children’s sermon, the kids learned that God is our healer.

  • Sunday was indeed a special time at our church. We had our traditional fifth-Sunday meal following the morning worship.
    Pastor Brad Vincent used Isaiah 6:8-13 as text for his message titled “The Blinding Power of the Gospel” as he defined how the prophet Isaiah warned the Israelites repeatedly of their need to repent and change their lifestyles before forewarning them of their ultimate destiny.
