  • Hodgenville News - July 8,2015

    Thought for the week: Worry looks around, Regret looks back, Faith looks forward.

    Out and about in Hodgenville this week: Well, all I can say about all the rain we had on Friday, that should be enough for a while, I couldn’t believe how fast it came down.

    Several church groups from Hodgenville have gone on mission trips this week, First Baptist Church went to the Dominican Republic, and Parkway Baptist went to Louisiana. I think that is so awesome!
