  • Kay's Branch News: Easter is the big topic around the Branch this week

    Easter, all the news in the community is about Easter this week. Well, almost all. All the churches in the area were full. After a less than beautiful start the day turned out very nice.
    Old Cedar had its sunrise service in the church this year. The wind was just too raw to venture out and the rain didn’t add to the ambiance. Our preacher is new and had visions of a sunrise service too, but we nixed it.
    Christians (Disciples) aren’t as hardy as Baptists, but we had a lovely service anyway.
