  • Fishing good at McNeely Lake

    Jefferson County's McNeely Lake is a good destination for canoeists, kayakers and those in small boats because the use of gasoline-powered motors is prohibited. 
   

    Located in Okolona, a suburb about 15 miles south of downtown Louisville, the 51-acre, L-shaped impoundment is reached via the Beulah Church Road exit off the Gene Snyder Freeway. Turn right onto Cooper Chapel Road and follow the signs. The lake is located within the 746-acre McNeely Lake Park, operated by the Louisville Metro Parks system.

  • Not reading Bible a dangerous place for professing Christians to be

    Have you ever read the entire Bible? How often do you read the Bible?
    Only 16 percent of churchgoers read the Bible daily and 25 percent of churchgoers don’t read the Bible at all, according to Read the Bible For Life.
    How can we call ourselves Christians if we are not diligent in studying the inspired word of God?
    Paul writes in 1 Timothy 4:16, “Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.”
