  • To the pastors and those who hold leadership positions in The New Testament Church. We must understand that we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit and that it is God the Holy Spirit that gives spiritual gifts as he sees fit (1Cor. 12:7-11, Ephesians 4:11-12). It is my prayer that this letter be read in its entirety and that the scriptural references be studied in their context and that any disagreement be scripturally supported.

  • Shelby Bickers, a World War II and Korean War veteran, had no intention of taking a trip to Washington D.C., at the beginning of this month. His granddaughter, however, urged him to take part in the annual D-Day Honor Flight, established to honor those from the “Greatest Generation” that have served.

  • Admittedly, children have been getting a lot of coverage at the library lately. That is a natural by-product of our partnerships with the school system, Summer Reading Program, and the teens that have been hanging out at the library. But that is not all we have going on and we probably need to do a better job of letting everyone know all of the options available to the community.

  • Today marks the first day of summer, so many of us have and will be spending more time outdoors, whether for work or play. As we spend time outside, we may come in contact with chiggers. As a kid running around on the farm (and as an adult), I have had my fair share of chigger encounters.

    So what are these little insects? Let’s learn more…

  • With summer upon us, many of us want to spend as much time as possible outdoors. As you venture outside, remember to protect yourself from sun and heat, no matter your age.
