    Bro. Bill’s morning message was from Matthew 18:12-14. Which sheep are we? Are we the one gone astray? What distractions have we bought into that pulled us away from Christ. Are we one of the 99? If we are, we need to take account of those gone astray and reach out to them. Are we the lost sheep that does not see a need for Christ? Jesus Christ wants to embrace us. He seeks continually to love us.

  • In the state of Kentucky, we have 52 state parks. Each state park offers a different view of the treasures in our state. There are few sights more spectacular than the changing of the colors of the leaves in the fall. What a great time to get outside and observe the beauty of our state and get some physical activity, too.
    There are more than 300 miles of trails and they are for all types of hikers. There are easy and moderate trails, such as the half-mile, self-guided trail at the Columbus-Belmont State Park.

  • Wagons have always played an important part in the history of Owen County. After the long hunters made their trek over the Appalachian Mountains and claimed land in Kentucky, they returned home (most often to Carolina or Virginia) and brought their families to this wilderness. The rich, fertile land of Kentucky was considered to be a paradise on earth. According to T.A. Perry, the first entries claiming land in what is now Owen County were filed in the Virginia Land Offices in 1780.
