  • Carroll youth baseball teams up with Bambino Buddies to share love for sport

    Saturday morning my phone starts dinging, signaling an incoming text. But it does not ding just once, but 15 more times. By now you have to look or are scared to look to see what is going on. I look down and find that Larissa McKinney has sent a message and 15 pictures of the Carroll County 10U traveling team that had just completed a Bambino Buddy session with special needs children.

  • Summer = Vacation Bible School

    We usually associate summer with many different things: swimming pools, being outside, a break from school, ice cream, fireworks on the Fourth of July, cookouts, etc. However, for many of us, a summer is not complete without Vacation Bible School. If you have been to a VBS or helped with a VBS you know what I am talking about.

    I have wonderful memories of going to VBS in the church I grew up. There were snacks, games, crafts, music and a lot of hard working, dedicated people who loved me and wanted to teach me about Jesus.
