  • Truck, tractor pull begins tonight

    What do giant tractors, enormous diesel trucks and a swimming pool have in common?
    Normally, not much. But in Lawrenceburg, the first two may someday bring about the third as thousands of people flock to Lawrenceburg over the next several years and leave behind enough money for a public swimming pool.
    That project kicks off in earnest this Friday and Saturday when the Kentuckiana Truck Pullers Association stages one of its biggest events of the year in Anderson Community Park.

  • Sharing the word is every Christian’s duty

    What do you remember about the first Apostle, Andrew?
    Without some research, I personally can’t think of much about Andrew. He is one of the lesser known Apostles, and mentioned only briefly in the Bible.
    However, his message goes deep. John 1: 41, “The first thing Andrew did (after he had met Christ) was to find his brother Simon and tell him we have found the Messiah.”
    Then, in John 6:8-9, Andrew introduces the boy with five small loaves and two small fish to Jesus who then fed 5,000.
