  • Life is a required course

    In the university of life, some courses are required of us.  Some we may choose, but others are required.

    Life itself is a required course in which we have no say. We did not choose to be born, but now that we are here, we can do nothing about it. We have to live. There is no escaping. You cannot destroy yourself. Life does not end at death. The story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16 proves this. You had a beginning, but there is no ending. You must exist somewhere from now on.

  • Levelwoods Church celebrates 217 years

    Sunday was the annual homecoming of Levelwoods United Methodist Church. It was a great day and the weather was like a late fall day. Many families and friends traveled from various locations to return home for this day. Levelwoods has been in existence for 217 years.

    The church began when Rev. John Baird, a Methodist circuit rider, preached a sermon at the residence of his brother-in-law Phillip Reed on Aug. 7, 1796. This led to the organization of Levelwoods Methodist Church.

  • Need a friend? Try one who will never leave you

    Loneliness is no respecter of persons. People may turn to drink, lose their sanity, and commit suicide because of the despair of loneliness. How many lonely people there are today!

    God did not create man to live in miserable inner loneliness. Jesus came to restore fellowship between man and God, and to take away human loneliness. Jesus Christ will take away loneliness from your soul. He will be your companion and friend.

  • Commitment, surrender, obedience

    The answer to a richer, fuller life is in Jesus. This kind of life comes about as a result of a continual relationship with him through commitment, surrender and obedience.

    Paul mentions three simple acts in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 that will promote a fuller life. First, Paul says, “Be joyful always.” This joy must be found in the Lord.

    Some seek their joy in toys, trinkets and treasures of this life, but these are temporary and do not last. True joy comes from our relationship with the Lord.

  • Craftsman guides New Haven church project

    The stately beauty of the great oaken doors was there all along, but it was buried beneath layers of  paint and needed the caring hands of a master craftsman to bring it out again.

    The Rev. Troy Overton knew just the man.

    Harold Bowling, who will be 77 in August, was baptized at St. Catherine Catholic Church in New Haven as a child and had been a parishioner there most of his life.
