Relay For Life raises over $24,000

Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back. Those are words that hundreds of Monroe County individuals came together to speak, live and believe as they participated in the 2012 Relay For Life of Monroe County, Saturday and Sunday, June 23 and June 24, to help the American Cancer Society advance its mission to save lives, help those touched by cancer, and empower people to fight back against the disease. This year, a total of 9 county teams and more than approximately 450 plus participants took part in the Relay. The evening’s event so far has raised approximately $24,000 with some additional money still outstanding. This was a significant raise over last year’s amount. This year’s Relay chairman was Ali Rentschler. “This year’s Relay made me cry it was such a fantastic event,” said Rentschler. “I was very, very impressed with the turnout.” In the days leading up to Relay, teams help raise much-needed funds and awareness through donations, activities and fundraisers. Area cancer survivors helped kick off the event by taking part in the first lap – the survivors’ lap followed immediately by a caregivers lap. After these emotional laps accompanied by thunderous applause individuals took over the track to walk away the laps throughout the night. Chairman Ali Rentschler opened the ceremonies welcoming this year’s participants to the Relay For Life of Monroe County and this year’s theme “Colors For a Cure” and thanked everyone for attending the annual event. “I know what cancer is all about and why we are here tonight,” said Chairman Rentschler. “We can’t rest. We can’t ever give up; you guys are never going to give up (she said to the crowd).” As Paris High School Junior Sara Hunt sang the National Anthem, with the colors presented by American Legion Post 221, you could scan the crowd and see what an emotionally charged evening it was going to be. Pastor Donna Scott gave the invocation and Rentschler introduced the steering committee members. “No life is disposable at all,” said Pastor Scott. “We do not have a chairman here in Monroe County – we do this by committee,” said Chairperson Rentschler. In a moving presentation, featured speaker Joyce Penny spoke about how cancer has touched her. “Survivors symbolize the courageous struggle of all cancer patients,” said

Committee Member Donna Morgan. Louise Hollingsworth received the 2012 Hero of Hope Award from Donna Morgan. Rentschler and Committee Member Robin Adams presented the 2012 Man of the Year Award to Monroe County Appeal Publisher David Eales. “Tonight is a celebration of life and of hope,” added Rentschler. “I ask everyone here tonight to join us in the walk of life!” Becky Blackaby and Brian Yelton performed to loud raucous applause prior to the luminaria ceremony while team members walked laps around the courthouse. Each team had its own food and specialty items available for sale during the event. As the daylight faded over the participants, luminarias were lit in honor of those fighting cancer, caregivers and in memory of those who have been lost to this disease. In a moving and emotional moment, as Mary Beth Mitchell and Ellen Smothers read each name – each individual luminaria was lit. Approximately 503 luminarias helped shine through the darkness and represent the hope that one day, cancer will no longer be a major health issue. Food booths are a large part of the event and help raise money on the spot. This year’s food booths included but was not limited to: Team Lifesavers - Pulled pork sandwiches, Cole Slaw, Lee’s famous tea and popsicles. Gang Green - BBQ hamburgers with Paris Exchange Ice Cream. The Paris National Bank - Fried pickles, fried Oreos and funnel cakes. They also featured breakfast with biscuits and gravy and bacon sandwiches served after midnight. Abel’s Quik Stop - Turkey and Noodles, hot dogs, tea, soda and water. Granville Church - Walking tacos, soda and water. Jeanne Nobis had her famous potato bar with fixings Monroe County Cancer Supporters Fish and fried potatoes Paris First Christian Church Pew Crew sold yarn scarves, puppy chow and chex mix.

APPEAL

A Question Yet To Be Answered?

Last week Rodney King was found dead in the swimming pool at his home in Los Angeles. He was 47 years old. Mr. King received a severe beating by LAPD officers in 1991 after he refused to stop for officers after a speeding and DWI incident. The acquittal of the officers charged in the case set off the Los Angeles riots of 1992 that killed 50 people, injured many others and did over $1 billion in damages. As the riot was building and the National Guard was called out to keep the peace and restore order, a very nervous and emotional Rodney King is interviewed and utters his simple but seemingly heartfelt question “Can we all just get along?” The question was repeated over and over and became at once a serious plea for reason and peace in the midst of social hatred and violence but also the butt of jokes and scorn depending on which corner you gathered with your friends. After his short and unintentional moments of fame and request for an end to the violence, Rodney King’s later mentions in the news were some unfavorable incidents or run-ins with the law. His most recent reflections on the events of 1991 and 1992 were on how he was viewed as heroic in some quarters and with hatred and deserving of a severe beating by others. He recalls being mocked by some for calling for peace as some kind of fool. Rodney King was no fool nor was he a hero. Rather he was an unfortunate and troubled man who without guile or hidden meaning asked a simple question that deserved an answer. Rodney King is gone, the answer to the question confined to the hearts and minds of those that try to do the right thing Can we all get along? Of course we can, but will we and when?

Just Ask Dave... by David Eales Publisher/Editor

appeal@parismo.net

Hats! This week I was thinking about hats. I don’t mean the hats we actually wear like my Kansas City Royals hat, my Washington Nationals hat or even my Washington Redskins hat. I mean our figurative hats. I wear a few hats during the month including my publisher hat, my chamber president hat, my Rotarian hat, my extension council hat and even last week I wore my 4-H photography teaching hat. Small towns, as I noted in last week’s column, David Eales are a wonderful place with people that pitch in when needed in emergencies and tough times. The bottom line though is that in a small town there is only a set number of people who wear hats. You know who they are - they are at every fundraiser or event organizing the food; getting workers for the kitchen; or making sure there are enough cups, plates and napkins for every event. Every town needs individuals to step up and help - or wear a hat so to speak. They need a steady influx of new hats to help keep the activities and events flowing and the town flourishing through either tourism or business growth - or both. In the first half of this year our county has lost two individuals who wore numerous hats and accomplished many great things. In this instance people will step up to the plate and wear new hats to pitch in and try to get things accomplished (as witnessed by the outpouring of support for 4-H Camp). However, what the town needs is for some new people to start to wear a hat. It can be scary. It can be overwhelming. But it can also be fun. The fellowship and camaraderie of meeting and helping your fellow citizens is exhilarating. Now I don’t mean that you jump in with both feet and suddenly wear multiple hats running two or three committees... I believe that you start slow, with maybe a headband. Try to join an event as a helper, as part of the worker class. This way you can see how the ‘hats’ run the event and how they easily direct all the efforts of the group. This was truly witnessed by the numerous headbands working at the highly successful Relay For Life of Monroe County this past weekend. There were definitely hat wearers but the headband wearers were out in full force. Now that you have worn a headband, work your way into the planning stages of an event or activity and graduate to a visor. With a visor you have advanced to a bigger effort with additional responsibility. There is no age limit on any of these pieces of headgear. The three ladies of Barking Butterfly Bakery are a prime example of that, though young they are all hat wears of the first class. To sum up in a nutshell, get involved any way you can. Not only does your town need it - you can also benefit from the experience. Who knows, in a few months you can look into your closet and have to decide what hat you are going to wear that day. Have a great week!

Just a Thought

by Lisa Talton

The Power of a Father If we are around young children for any length of time, chances are they are going to say and do some things that make us laugh. I want to share some of the funny things my children and other children have said and done. *My son and I were sitting on the couch when he asked me, “Hey mom, if you touch coyote poop will you get rabies?” I had to sit there for a minute to think about what he just said and then I questioned him right back. “Did you say coyote poop?” He said “Yes mom coyote poop.” Then I asked something that probably sounded a little silly but you never know with boys. “Why? Did you touch some coyote poop?” Then my son says, “No, I just wanted to know.” (I’m thinking why in the world is he asking about coyote poop and then I’m thinking I’m not even sure what the answer is to this question. I don’t think you can’t get rabies from touching any poop but I’m really not sure so I came up with a solution so we didn’t have to worry about it either way.) I told my son, “How about you just don’t touch any poop including coyote poop and then you don’t have to worry about it?”. My son looks at me shrugs his shoulders and says, “Okay”. *Six year old Angie and her four-yearold brother Joe were sitting together in church. Joe was giggling, and talking out loud. Finally his big sister had enough and said, “You’re not suppose to talk out loud in church.” Joe then asked, “Why? Who’s going to stop me?” Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, “See those two men standing by the door? They’re hushers.”

*I heard my son telling his brother: “Did you know if you start using deodorant too young it will make you go blind?” *My friend’s son shared this insight with his mom: “It must be really hard being a bug. One minute you are just walking around and the next minute you’re dead.” *Here is a young man trying to figure out the do’s and do not’s of life: “Can you go to jail for putting too much toilet paper in the toilet?” *My son: “Hey mom, did you know that drinking coffee makes your hair gray?” Me: “Oh really, how do you know that?” My son: “My friend told me that is why her mom has to color her hair orange. Yep, she just drank so much coffee that gray hairs started plopping out all over.” (I didn’t want to break it to him that children are probably more the cause of gray hairs than drinking coffee!!) *When a mom saw a thunderstorm forming in mid-afternoon she worried about her nine-year-old daughter who would be walking three blocks home from school. Deciding to meet her, the mom saw her walking nonchalantly along, stopping to smile whenever lightening flashed. When the little girl noticed her mom she ran to her and excitedly told her, “All the way home, God’s been taking my picture!” *According to my eight year old son, the way to be rich is helping people mow their yards. I thank God for the youngsters in our lives who bring us laughter and help us put smiles on our faces. There is nothing like being moved to tears through laughter and a good laugh has more than once helped me through a difficult time in my life.

Paris Coyote Football Team Attends Central Methodist Full Contact Camp On June 8 and 9, the Paris high school football team attended a full contact camp in Fayette, on the campus of Central Methodist University. There were nine teams competing at the camp. They scrimmaged against teams that were much larger in size and numbers. Teams like Lindbergh (6A) Fort Zumwalt North(5A), School of the Osage(3A), California(3A), Sullivan(4A), Derrick Thomas Academy, South Callaway(2A), and Duchesne High(4A) out of St. Charles. We were by far the smallest school and had the fewest players attending. For example Lindbergh had 69 players attending, and Paris had 12 players attending. All but one other school had over 30 players attending. Paris could have used the size factor as an excuse or be intimidated, but they did neither, they played with heart and passion. Paris sustained a couple of injuries the first day. One of the injuries was serious enough the player could no longer participate; now they were down to 11 players. Paris could have packed their bags and called it quits and went home and no one would have blamed them, but they were there to play football and that is exactly what they did. Paris played 15 scrimmages in 2 days with great courage and enthusiasm. Central Methodist Head Football Coach Alan Dykens had this to say about the Paris Coyotes. “I was very impressed with your team. They are a team that improved probably more

than any other team at the camp. The toughness and aptitude of your players was one that no other team could match. Each of your players needed to go every snap on both sides of the ball and they did this without hesitation. You have a great thing going there at Paris and I believe that your team is going in the right direction in every aspect. I look forward to watching and seeing the Paris Football Team continue to grow together for years to come.” This is a great compliment from Coach Dykens, and one that is very well deserving. These young men

stepped up in a big way, they are warriors. The community of Paris is very proud of these young men, if you are or know someone who wants to join this fine group of young men on the football team this fall please contact Coach Gary Crusha, at Paris High School. Attending the camp were Paris Coyotes Zac Baladenski, Tim Jennings, August Hayhurst, Cole Berry, John DeOrnelis, Kyle Popkes, Austin Coffman, Corey Court, Brendon Hancock, Briar Hancock, Tucker Gruber and John Turner.

Perry resident saves Presbyterian Church Church now serves as eclectic antique/thrift store

Editor’s Note: In a multi-part article the history and current use of the Perry Presbyterian Church will be covered in detail. According to paperwork supplied by new owner Jere Nelson, the Perry Presbyterian Church was organized at a meeting of Presbytery held at Paris, Missouri, April 8, 1881. This action came about at the request of the congregations of the Mt. Prairie Presbyterian Church (organized April 9, 1831) and the Lick Creek Presbyterian Church (organized 1839) who had petitioned for a merger of the two churches at separate Congregational Meetings held Sunday, Jan. 9, 1881. There were 125 charter members of the new church. The first church building was built on the lot where the present church now stands. The members of the Building Committee were: H. H. Brown, James A. Gallaher, R. G. Hanna, W. I. McElroy, D. B. Poage, J. H. Underwood, and J. W. Underwood. Lillie Womack, Florence Underwood, and T. T. Rogers were the committee appointed to select the carpet, chandeliers, and probably the pulpit and chairs. T. I. Rogers made the cushion or top for the pulpit. The pews of varnished hardwood from the Lick Creek Church were used. There was no musical instrument and James A. Gallaher was song leader. On November 4, 1881, enough money was borrowed to finish the frame structure which was the first church erected in Perry. The first minister was Reverend C. W. Humphrey, who served from May 1, 1882 to May 10, 1885. There was a very good Sunday School from the start of the church in 1881. Children in town from other denominations came and everyone seemed interested in lending a helping hand. In 1883 the women of the church decided to form a society to make money to provide better seating.

Take advantage of summer weather to inspect your home for adequate attic ventilation and make necessary repairs or improvements. A well-ventilated attic helps expel warm air and refresh it with cooler outside air.

DNR awards City of Perry $292,000

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has awarded the Ralls County city of Perry a $292,000 low-interest loan for wastewater improvement projects, including replacement of a sagging outfall pipe that limits the discharge and affects disinfection, and repair or replacement of 2,900 feet of sanitary sewer collection system. Funding for the loan comes from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund, which provides significant funding to assist communities with their wastewater infrastructure needs. By choosing to obtain a low-interest loan from the Department of Natural Resources, Perry will save more than $111,000 over the life of the loan. A portion of the funding will be targeted toward green infrastructure, wastewater and energy efficiency, and environ-

6 Thursday, June 28, 2012 Holliday Christian Church

Pastor David Holmes

On June 24, the congregation of Holliday Christian Church gathered and welcomed special visitor, Mike Haliburton. Services were opened with the prelude by organist, Jane Akers, and welcome from Reverend David Holmes. The church will host a homemade ice cream and cake supper and political candidate speaking on Friday, July 6, beginning at 6 p.m. The annual meeting will be held on Sunday evening, July 15, with the meal shared at 6 p.m. An Hour of Prayer is being held on Sunday, July 1, at 7:30 p.m. at the Paris Fairgrounds. Happy birthday was sung to: Riley Griffith and Chance McCarty. The opening hymn, “Holy, Holy, Holy” was sung and was followed by pastoral prayer and “Gloria Patri”. The children gathered near Reverend Holmes at the front of the sanctuary for the children’s sermon. A small boat was used to illustrate the story of Jesus and the disciples in the boat. As a terrible storm raged, Jesus spoke to calm the seas as He calms our lives in troubled times by entering our hearts through prayer. Prayer concerns were expressed for: Rebecca Hultz, Brenda Coffman, Ray Forbis and for Paula Delaney’s mother, Mary. Safe travels wishes were extended to T. J. and Brandi Kinnaman and their family. Reverend Holmes again expressed appreciation for all the acts of kindness following his accident and Lysa’s surgery. “Sweet Hour of Prayer” was the prayer hymn. Singing was followed by moments of silent meditation as the final verse was played and then pastoral prayer and unison recital of the Lord’s Prayer. The communion hymn, “Bread of Heaven” was sung as elders and deacons went forward and offered prayers for the symbols of Jesus’ broken body. Prayer and the doxology followed the sharing of communion and collection of offerings. Reverend Holmes’ morning message was entitled “It’s All in the Timing”. Scripture from Second Corinthians 6:1-13 was referenced for the message. The hymn of invitation and dedication, “The Light of the World is Jesus” was sung. Pastoral prayer and singing of “The Spirit Song” closed morning worship. To open Bible Study, Sandy Callison shared a reading entitled “Pressure Praying Wins Over”. Jim McMorris then led the group in prayer and in study and discussion of Matthew 17. All are welcome and encouraged to attend worship; regular services are held at 9:30 a.m. with Bible Study following at 10:30 a.m., each Sunday.

Perry Christian Church

Pastor David Todd

The worship service of June 24, for the Perry Christian Church began with the introit by Cheri Provancha, “In My Heart Rings a Melody”. Cullen Dye and Jim Gay were greeters. Pastor Todd welcomed guests, announcements and the Call to Worship. The Schutte family extended their thanks for us participating in the benefit for Jacob. Carol Norman also thanked everyone for their help. “Great Is the Lord” was sung in praise. “I Am Praying For You” was the prayer hymn. Frankie Ross, David and Leah Berry were on our concern list. Joe Ben Todd asked for prayers for the families of two friends of his that died in a car accident. Pastor Todd’s meditation for sharing the Lord’s Supper preceded singing “Blessed Redeemer”. Jill Lewellen and Greg Harrison served as elders. Deacons were Carol Norman, Anthony Elam, Tom Hurley and Jesse Todd. The Children’s Moment taught by Jeannie Gay was about God’s Love. Mark 4:35-41 was read by Shirley Levings for the pastor’s sermon on “Crossing to the Other Side”. Jesus blessed his disciples as he blesses us. He sends a sense of peace and calmness to us. People who are afraid can be inspired by our faith and actions and become aware that God has something great for us that is yet to come. “Softly and Tenderly” was the invitation hymn. “Revive Us Again” followed the benediction. The new board members and budget was passed at the congregational meeting that followed at the close of the service.

Church NEWS

Paris First Baptist Church

Pr. Wesley Hammond

Kathy Miller’s organ prelude was, “His Name is Wonderful”. Charles Ensor gave the invocation. BIG NEWS: Bible School was an amazing success. There were 91 enrolled and six people made a profession of faith. ANNOUNCEMENTS: Wednesday, June 27, ladies salad supper at the Methodist church, 6:30 p.m.; Thursday, June 28, blood drive from 1- 6 p.m. in Carter Hall. Donna Turner gave the children’s sermon. In the Bible, Peter and John, you know the disciples, some of Jesus’ helpers, went to the temple to pray. There was a crippled man at the gate. He sat on a mat and begged. He asked Peter and John for money. They in turn gave him the gift of healing. He received a greater gift than money, he could now walk. The man jumped around and praised God. God always knows what is best for us. God will always help us get through tough times. Steve Ensor gave the Call to Worship from Psalm 96; During the Personal Worship – quiet time – Brenda Ensor played a piano solo, “I’d Rather Have Jesus”. Brenda Vaughn and Mac Wilt sang a duet, “My Heart is Filled With Thankfulness”. Wesley Hammond gave prayer for Christians who serve around the world as missionaries. His sermon was entitled “Godliness in Perspective” from Act 3:1-26. Peter and John went for prayer at the temple. The lame man was at the temple gate called Beautiful. He was begging and asked them for money. Peter replied, “I have neither silver nor gold, but what I have, I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ the ‘Nazarene’, get up and walk!” The man was helped up and instantly his feet and ankles became strong. What if it were today? Would we be ready to be available to allow God to work through us? We should make ourselves available to give a blessing to those around us when God calls us to do so. We need to keep focused on God. Our actions should draw attention to Jesus. Someone around us may need a miracle. People God loves are all around us and God may want us to help. In Verse 25, Paul tells of God speaking to Abraham, “In your seed all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

South Fork Presbyterian

Pastor John Grimmett

The Sunday, June 24 services at South Fork Presbyterian church began with Patti Grimmett playing “My Faith Looks Up to Thee” on the piano followed by Pastor John Grimmett leading the Call to Worship from Psalms 118 and Debbie Carey leading in song to “Blessed Assurance:, “Be Still My Soul”, Leaning On Jesus” and “God Be With You”. Praises were for the new roof; Pastor John and Patti’s trip to Michigan; Bill Cearley doing better; Arla Eisenhower’s daughter, Angie better; welcome several grandson’s as visitors; prayer for little Madeline Rose and Mildred Millet all said the Lord’s Prayer and Prayer service will be held July 1, at 6 p.m. in the Paris Grandstand. Pastor John and Patti played guitar as they sang “Because He Lives” The message “Waking Our Savior” was based on scripture from Mark 4:35-41, what happens during the times of trouble? Have you ever felt that God was not listening? Who is this Jesus? God’s son; our Lord and Savior; He is coming back for us! A man of miracles; Mark based his writing on the words of Peter; Jesus died for us on the cross and rose again - we face storms in our lives- when you are hurt - you are buffeted by the wind being tossed by the Waves es - your heart is broken - our lives are shipwrecked...Why does this happen? Because Christ is asleep in YOU - Jesus is not up in the clouds, His power, strength and truth is in YOU. Remember Him! We all have the power of God, wake Him Up within us. “Bad things happen to God’s people”. Pay attention to Jesus during your storm! Christ’s spirit lives in YOU! We all belong to the Lord! The offertory was led by Kaylee Beckham and all sang the “Doxology”. Patti played “God Will Take Care of You” as all retired in fellowship to Roth Hall for coffee and donuts. Services are held every Sunday at 9 a.m. and all are welcome and encouraged to come hear the word of the Lord. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. Mark 4: 37.

Paris Full Gospel Fellowship

Pastor Terry Davison

On June 24, our focus for this week is “Do you Love: what you are doing, who you are, and where you are?” Imagine a crowd of people, wondering around aimlessly: with no sense of purpose, no dreams, no long term plans. Think about that person who greets you in the mirror each day...does that person have dreams of worth in their heart? Scripture teaches us that where there is no vision, the people perish (Proverbs 29:18). We are to have dreams and aspirations for the future. But what about the present: the here and now? How comfortable are we in our own skin? The Apostle Paul noted that it is good to be content in whatever state we are in (Phil 4:4). No matter what the circumstance, we should be happy to be whom and where we are. It is somewhat difficult to convey, but we seldom appreciate ourselves: we don’t act thankful for the lives God has given us. We far too easily lose sight of the fact that God gave us life, and promised it “abundantly” as we obey His statutes. We cannot in this lifetime fully appreciate the gift of life, let alone the blessings and challenges that accompany. But the closer we come to a fuller appreciation, the better our quality of life will become. Our outlook on life will provide impetus for accomplishment beyond our dreams. Scripture tells us, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man. The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” I Cor 2:9). If we can put our trust in God rather than self, we shall do well. We can become content with where and whom we are, and love of life will be full and rich.

Faith Walk Ministries

Bishop Harold Long

Blessings and Greeting from FaithWalk Ministries where Bishop Harold G. Long is the Pastor. The June 24, Sunday Morning Services opened at 10:30 a.m., with the Choir singing “Emanuel”. Prayer was lead by Elder Helen Fugate followed by opening scripture read by Bro. Michael Thompson. The Choir rendered two more selections, “I Love You, Jesus” and “Just Let Him In”. Seed planting, was conducted by Minister Kelly Ballenger and the Mission and Vision Statement was read in unison. The Message was delivered by Bishop Harold Long, whom spoke about “Change”, coming from II Corinthians 3:17-18. All change that God brings about is in our best interest in the long run and it has a purpose. We can’t only rely on old testimonies but we need to seek to find new experiences. Remember Change by God is gain. Reference Scriptures: Matt 6:33, 39, 76, Hebrews 2:7-10 and Colossians 3:10-17. May the blessing of the Lord be with you always!

Santa Fe Christian Church

Pastor Kenny Sharp

“JOY” was the title of Pastor Kenny Sharp’s sermon with the scripture text taken from John 10:10. You will have joy in yourself when you know who you are in Jesus Christ. With Him we have the keys to Heaven and that is everything to a Christian. God has great plans for each one of us -- which will happen in His timing. Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus Christ gives us life to live to the fullest. DO NOT let Satan steal your joy! Dawn Peak gave the children’s sermon and started by putting on shoulder pads, helmet and holding a golf club. We are to put on the armor of God and stand firm. The pads, helmet and golf club are not what protects us -- it’s the Word of God, the Bible. She read to them from Ephesians 6:11 - 17. Stand firm in your belief and do not sway from it. Prayers were requested for John Carver, James A Booth, Anna Spires, Donald Johnson, Frances Thomas, Mike, Wendy & Shane Umstattd, Austin Chase, Gene Hagen, Tom East, Issac and Mandi Dreisewerd, Mary Utterback, Kathy Laird, Barbara Ensor, Bobbie Wisdom and Madison Wheelan while at camp this week, all families for protection from satan, and silent prayer requests. Praises were expressed for John Bergthold’s doctor appointment in Texas, Gay Bergthold’s mother’s 75th birthday next weekend, Declan Bush’s successful surgery, Darrel & Nancy Wilkerson’s 29th wedding anniversary, Keith Woodhurst’s back improving since surgery, Karen Miller doing so well, and for Dean Calvin Edward feeling better. Traveling mercies were requested for Cassie & Luke Olivas and family. Everyone was thanked for the many cards Helen Sharp received for her birthday. A thank you note was read from Group Care for the recent donation made to the Kids to Kids Operation. Happy Birthday was sung to Clara Sessler. Movie on the pad will be held Friday night, June 29, at dusk. Everyone is invited to attend. There will be no SALT Saturday event the following day, Saturday morning. Plans continue to be made for the salad supper which will be held Monday, October 8.

There will be no Bible study the next two Wednesdays, June 27, or July 4th.

Granville Christian Church

Paris Presbyterian Church

Pastor John Grimmett

The Paris Presbyterian Church held worship service Sunday, June 24, Patti Grimmett served as the organist. She led us into worship service with, “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name.” Pastor John Grimmett led the call to worship from Psalm 118. Next there was a time for passing the peace and greeting one another. Pastor John Grimmett gave the announcements and led the pastoral prayer and The Lord’s Prayer. Pastor John Grimmett delivered the message, “Waking Our Savior.” The message was based on scripture reading from Mark 6:35-41. The closing hymn was, “How Great Thou Art.” The benediction response was, “My Faith Looks Up to Thee.” Patti Grimmett led us out of worship service with, “To God Be the Glory.” The Paris Presbyterian Church will hold worship service next Sunday, July 1. Adult Sunday school begins at 9:30 a.m., Children’s Sunday School begins at 10 a.m., followed by worship service at 10:45 a.m. Anyone is welcome to attend.

Mt. Airy Baptist Church

Pastor Robt. Cavanaugh

On June 24, church services began with the pastor giving an opening prayer. Regular church meetings of the week were announced and all were encouraged to attend. Announcements included the Mountianair’s will sing at Monroe Manor in Paris on July 9, at 7 p.m. and at Clarence Care Center on July 30, at 7 p.m., youth volunteers for the Summer Feed a Child Program will have a swim party after volunteering on Friday. We will also collect food items for the Feed a Child Program. We will have the Lord’s Supper next week. There will be a 4th of July celebration at the church on the 4th. This week’s message was titled “Abiding in Christ” and came from John 15:1-11. Jesus is the only true source of Christian strength. To receive this strength we must stay connected to Jesus for we can do nothing without Him. It is a privilege to be able to share life with Jesus. With this privilege comes the responsibility of abiding in Him. Do not let the things of the world come in between you and Jesus.

Red Cross needs all blood type donations

The American Red Cross has an emergency need for blood donors of all blood types. In June, 50,000 fewer pints of blood were donated than expected. Many people say they don’t give blood because they were not asked. Consider yourself asked! Give before you go on your Independence Day (July 4) holiday. Blood and platelets are needed for all types of reasons. Patients like accident and burn victims,

heart surgery patients, organ transplant patients, premature babies — when there are complications during childbirth — and for patients receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease — may all require blood transfusions. Please take time to donate Thursday, June 28, 1-6 p.m., at the First Baptist Church, 106 North Main St., in Paris.

MoDOT local area road closures announced

Paris fireworks... Continued from front •Never experiment or make your own fireworks. •Light only one firework at a time. •Never re-light a “dud” firework (wait 15 to 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water). •Never give fireworks to small children. •If necessary, store fireworks in a cool, dry place. •Dispose of fireworks properly by soaking them in water and then disposing of them in your trash can. •Never throw or point fireworks at other people. •Never carry fireworks in your pocket.

•Never shoot fireworks in metal or glass containers. •The shooter should always wear eye protection and never have any part of the body over the firework. •Stay away from illegal explosives. Treat fireworks with respect, read all of the cautions and warnings and use common sense. Lighting fireworks indoors, throwing them from automobiles and lighting multiple devices at the same time can lead to accidents and are not how fireworks are intended to be used.
