  • Since 2004, Nancy’s Gift Shop has been serving LaRue County, providing residents with handmade gifts, flower arrangements and homemade candy. Now, they’re ready to expand.

    Nancy Polley Alexander, a retired art teacher, stocked the Main Street store with gifts and decorative paintings that she made herself.

    As the store grew, Rooney Gray, also a former teacher, was added to the mix. Gray had always enjoyed making candy with her family during the holidays and decided to begin a candy-making business “Mam” as part of Nancy’s Gift Shop.

  • As part of a new initiative, anyone can have a hand in cleaning up the oil spill on the Gulf Coast by simply getting a haircut.

  • Seventh Seal: Prelude to the seven trumpets (Revelation 8:1-6)

    The trumpets announce severe judgment in response to the prayers of the saints. Trumpets are a warning signal and a call for mankind to repent of their sins. The plagues released by the blowing of the trumpets are similar to the plagues of Egypt (Exodus 7:17-21; 9:21-25; 10:21-23).

    The first four affect the natural world and the last three affect the unsaved. Some people believe these calamities are symbolic and not literal. They are seen as repetitive throughout history and intensifying as the age closes.

  • The desire of every Christian should be to please our heavenly father by our deeds, words and attitudes. James shows us ways the Christian can please God.  The book of James is a manual on the Christian life.

    God’s will for every Christian is that we grow spiritually. The writer of Hebrews challenges us, “… let us … go on to maturity” (6:1). God wants us to be like his son. As Christians our standard for measuring our growth is not another Christian, but the word of God.
