  • Three LaRue County Seniors received the prestigious designation of Academic All-American by the National Speech and Debate Association for the 2017-18 school year.

  •     With LaRue County’s Relay for Life less than seven weeks away, the community is invited to a Cruisin’ for a Cure Bicycle Ride this Saturday beginning at 10:00. The event, similar to the former Tour de LaRue, is open to all ages and will host two riding options. A short loop on the First Baptist Church property is open for young riders with trikes, big wheels, and small bikes while others are welcomed to ride the three- mile loop beginning at the church and winding through neighboring subdivisions.

  • National Day of Prayer

  • Church bragging. Pastor comparison. Attendance boasting. Building attention. Offering emphasis. Program lauding. Denominational arrogance. Personal Pride.

    1 Corinthians 1:10 (ESV) “I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.”

  •      It has been a joy to watch our Chinese grand-daughter grow in her relationship to the Lord.  So we were thrilled recently to read a statement she made in one of her school papers, I want to be remembered as a shining light of Jesus.  Jesus said in John 8:12, I am the light of the world; he who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.  This is one of the seven self-descriptions of Jesus introduced by I am.  Our light as followers of Christ is a reflected light.
