  • Gratz Baptist

    What a Baptist morning. Brother Lewis’ message was from James 1:27 and Luke 13:5. Are you a child of God? you must repent and be born again to become a child of God.
    All we have to do is believe and have faith to know that he is always there. It’s up to us to let him into our hearts and lives. There is nothing better to have in your life than Jesus.  
    Keep all those who are on our prayer list in your prayers a special prayer to the Furnish family.  

  • Cedar Hill Baptist

    Bro. Adam’s message was from Matthew 3:13-17 on the baptism of Jesus. Jesus was baptized to identify with us, to be obedient to God, and to serve as an example for us. Baptism does not save us, only acceptance of Jesus Christ through faith saves us. However, baptism is the first step in obedience to Christ after we accept Him through faith. We rejoice with Stacey and Jason as they have expressed their faith in Christ and followed in obedience with baptism.

  • First Christian

    First Christian said farewell and thank you to the Rev. Dann Masden with a hearty country breakfast before worship Sunday morning.

    The choir provided a beautiful special led by Berna Tanksley, minister of music.

  • Epoch

    The past couple weeks have been totally exciting for us. We are happy to announce our newest partnership with First Baptist Woodstock in Georgia.

    Our local ministry, “The Wild Goose Cafe,” had a huge grand opening last week followed by the Owen County Arts Council’s poetry reading/concert last Saturday. All of our proceeds from the cafe go to helping families in need here in our community.

  • Hannah Neeley named Player of the Week

    Another week means another Lady Rebel has been named NCKC Player of the week.
    Hannah Neeley received the honor last week for her effort in the Lady Rebels’ two wins over Collins and Oldham County. In the two victories, Neeley poured in 31 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out seven assists.
    It was the third straight week a member of the Owen County Lady Rebels was named Player of the Week. The previous two winners were Samantha Toole and Rianna Gayheart.

  • Lady Rebels ready for postseason

    The 2010-2011 regular season will be one to remember for the Lady Rebels.
    The team won 20 games for the first time since 2003-2004. Three separate players were named NCKC Player of the Week. Rianna Gayheart was named Eighth Region Player of the Year, and Head Coach Bob Osborne was named Eighth Region Coach of the Year.
    This team, however, does not want to only be known for what they accomplished in the regular season. They want to have people remember them for what they do in the postseason.
