  • “O Lord, Do It Again”

    “And they were amazed .... what meaneth this” (Acts 2:12).  Pentecost -- what a day for the 120 who had been waiting and praying in the upper room after the crucifixion and resurrection.  Suddenly there was a rushing mighty wind, cloven tongues sat on them as they began to speak in different languages. People heard them speak in their own language and bystanders were perplexed.  Things were different after this experience of Pentecost.

  • Just Be Kind!

    Why the sign phenomena? Have you noticed the signs all over Hardin county and spreading into LaRue county? Have you wondered why they are so popular? I think the answer is simple but significant: Our world is dark and mean.

  • Nothing like an escape

    We left out last Saturday to go to Columbus, Indiana to sing at church homecoming there on Sunday.

    For those of you who don’t know, my wife Danielle sings in a southern gospel group called “The Sextons.” They were all Sextons until Danielle married me and became a Ponder, throwing the whole group off haha.

    LaRue County Relay for life had a successful year in 2017-2018.

    Survivor Chair Kathy Ross said their yearlong fundraising campaign ended on August 31. Their goal of raising $60,000 was narrowly missed as they raised an overall total of $59,104. While the goal fundraising fell slightly short of being met, Ross said many other goals were achieved as the 2018 main Relay for Life event was moved to CreekFront Park in Hodgenville.
