Congratulations to all the winners of our local elections. I am praying for your success in the offices you are filling.
The Big Country Breakfast and Bake Sale will be held at the Community Center from 7-10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20. Come out and enjoy homemade biscuits, gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, coffee, juice or milk all for $7 per plate. Bake sale items are donated and priced accordingly. We need more community involvement for our center and would like to invite people to join in. Membership dues will be coming due as of Sept. 1 and can be paid at the breakfast. Annual dues are $25. We appreciate all our members and would like to have more events if we can get enough help to do so.

Our community leaders, government officials, law enforcement, first responders, healthcare workers, teachers and administrators and many others can certainly use our prayers daily with all that is going on in our world. There is much spiritual warfare with society accepting things that go against who God is and what HIS laws are that we are to follow. Every day of life has its challenges, but if we look to God for the right path, it can be a good one. Please pray for Jeanette Walker, Paul Schilling, Lisa Bishop, Kilby Cumingham, Jennifer Paton, Imogene Naylor, Dwight Rhodes, Lill Emerson, Samantha Stark, Nancy Crouse, Martha Cooper, Jake Richardson, Ashley Pugh, Faye Morrison, Ann Morrison, Faye Crouse, Ed Morris and others that are sick or healing. We especially want to remember the families of Dr. Orman Campbell and other families that have recently lost loved ones.
