  • Kay’s Branch News by Bee Spicer

    I spoke too soon — the paper had just come out last week when the morning news reported that an earthquake had rolled through Florence and was felt as far south at Grant County.

  • Church News: Old Cedar Baptist

    After all the snow we had, it was great to see the sunshine Sunday, and our service was great.
    Bro. James spoke about resolutions as you begin a new year. You may be painfully aware that you have failed your Lord in many ways.
    Perhaps you were not faithful, perhaps you disobeyed his word to you. Jesus has a wonderful way of restoring us when we fail him. He takes us aside and asks us to reaffirm our love for him. If you truly love him, your service for him in the New Year will be of the quality he desires.
    At 6 p.m. Sunday, we’ll have Bible study.

    The New Columbus Community 4-H Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in our church fellowship hall.
    The message Sunday will be citing Matthew 23:8-12 and be titled “Why I Am Not Your ‘Calvinist.’ “
    Pastor Brad Vincent will be explaining how Jesus warns us in Matthew 23 about letting anyone claim to be our follower or claiming to follow someone else. Although many people boast about their favorite author or historical figure, we as Christians, have pledged allegiance to one: Jesus Christ.
