  •  Sunrise Volunteers

    On Friday, May 16, Sunrise Manor residents are going to visit Creekfront Park.

    Many residents are looking forward to this outdoor outing. Sunrise Manor Nursing Home is encouraging residents to attend.

  • None of us are immune to discouragement. Even the prophet Elijah got discouraged. He had boldness, faith and power when he faced the false worshippers of Baal in I Kings 18, but in the very next chapter, fear has replaced faith, his power is drained by self-pity and disobedience replaced obedience.

    Discouragement brought changes to Elijah. He saw himself as less than he was. Fear brought misery and caused him to evade his responsibilities. He even began to blame God for his situation and he felt that he was the only faithful servant left.

  •   If you haven’t yet signed your child up for 4-H Camp, now is the time to do so.  Generally, camp is open to LaRue County youth ages 9 to 14 years old or fourth through eighth grades. New this year, current third-graders may attend.

  • One of the most common ways we tend to make food taste good is by adding salt. Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium which can raise blood pressure and lead to major health issues including heart disease. Herbs provide a great way for us to limit our sodium intake while still consuming flavorful foods.

  • Do not spread slanderous gossip among your people. Leviticus 19:16

    What is it about gossip that entices people? Deep inside a whisperer, there is a deep hurt and a feeling of very low self-esteem.

    Gossip blends two other sins.

    First, either through what is said or what is left unsaid, gossip often uses half-truths or outright lies to throw doubt on the character of another person. Second, when we gossip about a person we are stealing from them a reputation.
