  • Fourth of July celebrates America, honors sacrifices of its veterans

    As it has for nearly two-and-a-half centuries, our nation will pause on Monday to celebrate its “birth” day, commemorating a time 240 years ago when the Founding Fathers declared our independence.

    Since July 4, 1776, we have weathered a war for our freedom, a war against ourselves and wars against those who would like nothing more than to see us and our values falter. Although the world has changed in countless ways since Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence, our commitment to protect and promote freedom has never wavered.

  • 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.
