  • The Senior Event returns Thursday, Sept., 13, offering “An Old-Fashioned Picnic” experience free to all area senior citizens at Point Park in Carrollton.

    What would an old-fashioned picnic be without picnic food and games? Or, without the chance to sit back and enjoy, or sing along with some of those old favorite melodies?

    This year’s Senior Event will be a chance to come out to the park, enjoy good food, music and games while socializing with friends.

  • Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear Jesus.  And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, ‘This man receives sinners and eats with them.’ ” (Luke 15:1-2)

    This passage could be described as classic Jesus. In these two verses, we find Jesus doing what Jesus does best in Luke’s gospel — loving the social outcast and offending the religious establishment. I often wonder why many of us in the church seem to do the opposite? 

  • The Rev. David W. Croucher was voted June 17 as pastor at the First Apostolic Church, 111 Third St., Carrollton.

    He replaces the Rev. Samuel Smith, who retired for health reasons after 10 years of service.
