    Beauty of Creation. I love seeing different geography, whether by car, train, boat, or plane, God’s Creation is diverse and amazing.

    Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.”

  •  Great teachers make great schools.  Since this is true, you and I as Christians go to the best school in the world.  There are no entrance fees, we don’t have examinations, we don’t even have to leave home.  Jesus is the Master Teacher and we are invited to sit at His feet and learn life’s most important lessons.

  • The LaRue County Middle School seventh and eighth grade, and the LaRue County High School Concert Bands performed at the 2019 KMEA 4th District Concert Band Assessment on Tuesday, March 26 at John Hardin High School. Each band performed prepared pieces of music on the PAC stage in front of three judges and a live audience. Following the prepared performance, each band also sight-read a piece of music in a separate room for a judge at, which means the band was not shown the piece of music until asked to perform it.

  • The Christian life is the happiest and most fulfilling life that a man can live, but it is no bed of roses.  The Apostle Paul says it is a spiritual battle until you are taken home to heaven (Ephesians 6:10-20).  To live it rightly means one must make a full and complete surrender to God’s will.

  • If you knew a natural disaster was coming to your region, what would you do? If you had time you’d flee the impending destruction. If you didn’t have time to flee, you’d find a safe place of shelter as quickly as possible. You’d seek safety and freedom from the danger. You’d get the attention of your loved ones and help or invite them to find protection with you. If we take seriously the justice and wrath of God, we would do well to not ignore God’s words on the subject.
