  • There is a time to pray i

    In hopes of uniting a community, one man is coming forward with a plan.

    Rick McCreary, a Campbell County native and minister, wants the churches and people of the community to pray with him on Saturday morning.

    The idea of an area wide prayer service came to him after viewing the documentary “Appalachian Dawn.” The documentary traces the history of drug use and poverty in Clay County, Ky. as well as how the town turned itself around. The residents of Clay County’s first step were to pray together.

  • Comforting Scriptures are priceless

      Recently when I was praying concerning a heartfelt matter I began to remember some wonderful comforting Scriptures.

    First I want to remind you that our enemy has no intention of leaving us alone, especially if he thinks there is a notable weakness in our life. I have always felt like Satan could not read our mind- but he can plant seeds in our mind, if we don’t rebuke them. He can read out actions, also, many times we profess doubt by the very words that come out of our mouths.

  • Do you know The Good Shepherd?

       The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want (Psalm 23:1).

    In my younger years I questioned this verse of scripture, “I shall not want.” I wondered, why am I not to want the Lord as my shepherd? As I became more mature and gained more understanding of the scriptures I realized that God would not allow my need to go unmet.
