  • Small things can teach big lessons

    We are impressed by size, and most seem to think if it is big and noisy, it must be important.

    But we find in the Scriptures, that God many times uses small things to teach big lessons.

    In Zechariah 4:10 the question is asked, “For who has despised the day of small things?” The prophet is seeking to encourage the people during a difficult time as they rebuild the temple.

    Be careful not to despise small things. We started as a small baby; God sent a baby to lead his people out of bondage; a baby was sent by God to deliver us from our sin.

  • 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).

  • Senior Choir celebrates 103 years of harmony

    Seldom do you hear of a gospel group singing more than 100 years.

    The First Baptist Senior Choir celebrated their 103rd Anniversary in high fashion Sunday with new uniforms. They were honored and recognized by the congregation.

    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.”
