  • First Baptist Hodgenville hosts the South District

    First Baptist Hodgenville was the host of the 145th South District Association last week. This was the third time the church hosted the event. It was also the 128th Sunday School and B.T.U. Convention, 74th Youth Conference, and the 77th Women’s Missionary Auxiliary. The theme was “One Master, One Foundation, Many Plans,” taken from 1 Corinthians 3:1-11.

  • 'A mind through which Christ thinks'

    Recently my wife and I received a get well card from the Okesons that contained these words: “May you always be … A mind through which Christ thinks; A heart through which Christ loves; A voice through which Christ speaks; A hand through which Christ helps.”
    These words describe the “godly life” that Paul speaks of and challenges Timothy to live (2 Timothy 3:10-17).

    The Senior Choir was organized in 1912 by Addie Wheeler, the wife of Rev. W.W. Wheeler. She later became the first president; Carrie Bell Williams was the first organist.

  • Hubbard Cemetery fundraiser set for Aug. 9

    First Baptist Church, located at 404 S. Lincoln Blvd. in Hodgenville, will once again play host to Rev. Dr. Kevin Cosby on Aug 9.

    Rev. Dr. Cosby has been helping the church raise money over the past eight years to maintain Hubbard Cemetery on College Street.

    Stephanie Melvin, a cousin of Cosby’s, convinced him to help the organization with their fundraiser in 2005 and has since made it a regular event.

    The event over the years has grown and now people from Radcliff, Elizabethtown, Bardstown, and Campbellsville attend.  

  • COLUMN: Things will get worse in the last days

    These are the last days before Christ comes back and calls a halt to this sinful world. Jesus speaks of the end time in Matthew 24. Paul describes the last days in his second letter to Timothy (3:1-5). He characterizes them as being  “terrible times.”
