  • Do you worship God, TV or churches?

    Much of the Old Testament reveals how many times the children of Israel strayed away from God by worshiping idols.
    Idolatry is basically the idea of placing faith in things created by man rather than things created by God.
    You hopefully remember the golden calf, baals, etc.  Are we much different?  It’s easy to place faith in our own accomplishments, our fine homes, jobs, cars — perhaps even our giant church buildings.

  • Middle school students raise money to assist their pen pals in Kenya

    In Kenya, the typical school classroom consists of just dirt floors and desks.
    No computers, no tile hallways.
    For the students in Elizabeth Mills’ sixth grade class at Anderson Middle School, this came as a shock as they corresponded via letter with Kenyan students practicing their English.
    Mills started the 8,000-mile letter correspondence between Kentucky and Kenyan students after connecting with her friend, Alex Elliot, who taught in Kenya for four and a half months following graduation.
