  • 14 years for the Wilkinsons

    On Nov. 18, 2000, First Baptist Hodgenville began a new era by selecting Rev. Jerry Wilkinson as pastor. He replaced the late Pastor Emeritus, Rev. Donohue Price who had retired due to bad health after being with the church 43 years. Rev. Wilkinson preached his first sermon as pastor on the second Sunday morning in December 2000.

  • Local churches minister in the Philippines

    A team of Kentucky Baptists brought healing and hope to hundreds of people in the Philippines still recovering from Typhoon Pablo, a devastating storm that struck the island nation two years ago.

    The six-member team, including members of Rolling Fork Baptist Church in Boston, provided medical exams and treatment to nearly 900 people in the Philippines between Aug. 24 and Sept. 2. They also held worship services and led two pastors’ conferences.

    Rolling Fork pastor Bruce Nichols said much work remains for those trying to rebuild.

  • One day, he’ll return

    Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman, a great Presbyterian evangelist of another day, wrote the hymn “One Day.” It is one of my favorite gospel hymns for it expresses the whole plan of redemption in the refrain:

    Living – He loved me.

    Dying – He saved me.

    Buried – He carried my sins far away.

    Rising – He justified freely, forever:

    One day He’s coming – O Glorious Day!

  • COLUMN: Temptation begins in the mind

    It is always there. It lurks just around the corner. We are never free of it. Temptation is our constant companion stalking us like a lion its prey.

    Temptation is always a potential danger. God in his word helps us understand the temptations we will face and helps us gain victory over them.

  • Magnolia Church shows hummingbird documentary

    A new feature-length documentary about hummingbirds, called “Refracted Glory,” is showing in Magnolia on Oct. 11. It’s a film that brings to the screen a tiny creature like never before — all for the glory of God.

  • COLUMN: Find satisfaction in the midst of discontent

     “More.”

    This is a small word, but it summarizes the hopes and obsessions of many Americans. More money, more success. More of this and more of that.

    Many live for “more.” Our next raise, our next house. They search, but never seem to find, and most are unhappy in their search.
