Holiday meals delivered from page 1 cooked this year and many ladies of the community have made pies for the 400 meals of turkey, dressing and all the trimmings, we will be delivering,” she said. “Our goal is to make sure any senior citizen that needs a meal gets one,” she added. Gathering early at the Bradford Senior Citizens Center Thursday, office

holders throughout the area divided into two competing teams of Pilgrims and Indians to see which team could pack the most meals. Heading up the teams were first time participants, County Mayor Tom Witherspoon and U.S. Congressman-elect Stephen Fincher. At the conclusion of the competition, both stated they were blessed

to have participated and look forward to many more years of being involved in the event dubbed Project Care. They commended the Office on Aging for thinking about senior citizens in such a caring way. Again this year, Susan Hill served as scorekeeper. Other elected officials including State Sen. Lowe Finney, State Rep. Curtis

Halford, Sheriff Chuck Arnold, County Clerk Joyce Brooks-Brown, mayors and aldermen across the county joined in the serving of the meals. Dethloff thanks everyone that helped including area bikers who escorted vans containing meals all across the county for making this year’s project another successful one.

it would be a minimum of six months before any work would begin on the grant project. Wastewater supervisor William Caton informed the board that he had replaced seals in some pumps and needed to replace those seal kits in order to have them in stock. Alderman Jimmy Landrum advised that the meeting regarding a sewer easement for the park with Fairview Baptist Church had been postponed again until December 5. Motions were also made and approved to gravel the wastewater plant driveway at a cost of $1,720 and to gravel the entrance to the East College Street lift station at a cost of $2,150. Other business brought before the board included the approval of the second and final reading of a water

leak adjustment policy ordinance 2010-194, and the adoption of Resolution 2010-188, authorizing the issuance of capital outlay notes by the city not to exceed $25,000. Troop Master of Boy Scout Troop 342, Keith Siler, spoke to the board regarding Zachariah Mercer who is working on an Eagle Scout project. Mercer needed the permission of the city council to proceed with his project. Mercer spoke to the board, submitting photos of three potential sites at the park where he would like to construct three raised flowerbeds. Mercer explained his plans for improvements and mentioned that any donations toward the project would be much appreciated. The board approved Mercer’s project.

Prepare for winter weather BY STEVE SHORT Even though we live in the South, winter storms can significantly impact people in West Tennessee, said Rickey Graves, Gibson Co. Director of Emergency Management last week. He is asking county residents to take steps to prepare for winter weather in order to avoid serious problems. Winter Awareness Week is observed around the country

during November. “Winter storms do occasionally affect us in West Tennessee,” said Mr. Graves. “Even last year we were slammed with a couple of large snowfalls that covered most of West Tennessee, causing traffic problems and school closures, and hampering our daily lives to a large degree.” “We also want to remind folks that this is a great time

to have your heating systems checked, your pilot lights lit, and water pipes wrapped in anticipation of the fast approaching sub-freezing temperatures.” “In the event of a winter storm coming into our area, please take all precautions in travel and daily life to avoid becoming a victim of winter weather,” said Mr. Graves. “If we are impacted, please tune into local radio and TV stations for instructions.”

Be safe with heaters during ice storms Residents of Gibson County are advised to use safety precautions when heating homes and businesses during ice storms and winter weather. Rickey Graves, Gibson Co. Emergency Management Director, asked that people be aware of safety hazards, especially those posed during improvised heating situations. “We saw last year that we are susceptible to ice storms in the Mid-South,” said Mr. Graves. “We want to warn our citizens that in the event of ice storms please do not

bring any type of open flame or fuel-based heating systems, such as propane heaters, into the house or near the house. Every year we see persons killed or sickened by improperly

using such heating devices and by running generators too close to homes and businesses. “Please take all precautions in these perilous times and be safe,” said Graves.

Insight & Opinion

Confessions of a recovering UT fan

Clayburn Peeples reports: Is there anything more pathetic than a UT football fan on game day? I should know; I’ve been looking at one in the mirror every autumn Saturday for nearly 60 years now. And for me, the worst time is the Saturday at the end of November when we play Kentucky. Several times I have tried to break the grip this particular game has over me and just ignore it, but like an alcoholic who

Neyland was first hired in 1926 his instructions were simple; “Even the score with Vanderbilt.� When I entered college in 1964, the Alabama game was considered the biggest of the year; now, for many fans, it’s Florida. But for me, the game of the year, year in and year out, is the Kentucky game. You see, I grew up in South Fulton, on State Line Road. Our house was on the

just can’t avoid that one more drink, I always find myself watching, or at least listening, year after year. Of course for every Tennessee football fan there are games that are more nerve wracking than others, games it just kills you to lose and thrills you inordinately to win. And which game that is changes with the times. Every Tennessee fan knows that when Gen.

Farm groups get $250 million in federal funds to boost exports BY STEVE SHORT The Dept. of Agriculture announced in November that $250 million in payments went to more than 100 farm lobbying groups to finance the overseas promotion of agriculture products. Approximately $25 million went to the Cotton Council International, one of the biggest beneficiaries. Much of the taxpayer funds are used for foreign television and newspaper advertising, according to Public Policy Matters. The USDA announced the following FY2010 payments under the Emerging Markets Program: ($8.3 million), the Market Access Program

($197 million), the Quality Samples Program ($1.9 million), the Foreign Market Development Program ($34.5 million), and the Technical Assistance for Specialty Crops program ($7.3 million). Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) provided funding allocations supporting more than 100 organizations’ efforts to help expand commercial markets for U.S. agricultural exports. “These market development programs provide opportunities to

organizations working on behalf of America’s farmers to expand U.S. exports as part of the President’s National Export Initiative,� said Vilsack. Some of the groups receiving large allocations in the Market Access Program included: Cotton Council International $20.6 million, U.S. Meat Export Federation $16.5 million, Food Export Assoc. of the Midwest USA $10.7 million, American Forest & Paper Assoc. $8.4 million, U.S. Grains Council $8.2 million, Wine Institute $7.2 million, and Southern U.S. Trade Association $6.6 million.

County library funding far below state average BY STEVE SHORT Local funding for the Gibson Co. Memorial Library lags far behind the state and national average, according to figures presented to Gibson County Commissioners in November. The county library received $6.11 per person compared to the average library funding in Tennessee, $16.49 per person. Figures were provided in an informational brochure from the county library which is located at 303 High Street in Trenton. The most recent national average for library funding (FY 2007-08) was $31.94 per person. In comparison, local funding at Milan’s Mildred G. Fields Library is $17.65 per person. The Fiscal Year 200910 budget for the Gibson County Memorial Library in Trenton included $135,477 in local funding. The Gibson Co. Memorial Library had over 9,468 registered card holders last year. Over 54,200 visitors checked out 89,320 items from the library’s collection. The library hosted 281 programs attended by 5,223 people. The library reported that 2,451 children with library

The

Tennessee side of the road, but just across the street was Kentucky. Fulton, Kentucky and South Fulton, Tennessee were a single economic unit, but as sports fans, they were worlds apart. And in my early childhood (the 1950’s) being a Tennessee fan was tough there. Paul Bryant was Kentucky’s coach for eight years in that era, and the Wildcats were awfully good. So good that between 1952 and 1960 they tied us twice and beat us five times. And it just about killed me every time they did. The first time I ever saw the game in person they beat us again (1964— 12-7) and I still remember the pain of that afternoon, even to this day. Like I said earlier, there’s nothing so pathetic as a UT football fan. But since the Bear left Kentucky, the series has been pretty kind to Tennessee fans. So good, in fact, that we’ve won 45 out of the last 50 games against them. (Or is it 46 out of the last 51? I forget.) And as everyone now knows, we’ve won 26 in a row. You have to look back, in fact, to 1984 to find a Kentucky victory in the series. Last Saturday

the only people on the field who were even alive the last time we lost to Kentucky were the officials, and some of them were probably too young to remember it. We’ve been fabulously successful against them for a half-century now, so why is it the game gets tougher for me to watch every year? “What if we don’t beat them this year?� I ask myself in panic every season. Of course we did, even though we had to come from behind to do so, but what if they hadn’t fumbled at the goal line, shanked a punt and missed an easy field goal? What if their coach hadn’t decided to punt when they were 4th and two on the 37yard line, or what if our foolhardy fake punt hadn’t worked? The streak might have ended at 25, and what a weekend ruining disaster that would have been. Some people like close games. Not me. I like blowouts like in the 90’s when we usually put up points in the 30’s and 40’s against the Cats. And sometimes we still do, but they rack them up too. Today they consistently field a good, sometimes

This holiday season, Highway 54 Salvage QRPMW is working with the USMC Toys for Tots to collect toys for children. The mission of the program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during November and December each year, to distribute Christmas gifts to children in the Trenton Community. There are 14 million children who go without toys at Christmas. Since 1991, when the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation began, they have collected over 80 million toys to make a better Christmas for those children who may not have a gift. This year collections have been slightly down. “We are pleased to get this call from QRPMW,� states USMC Brian Murray, Director of Operations for Toys for Tots, “we welcome everyone in this organization and look forward to working together to do everything we can to help the children.� All 33 locations of the QRPMW organization for Toys for Tots Collection Centers. Tony Kirk and Terry Parks, owners of Hwy. 54 Salvage in Trenton state, “We look at working with the USMC Toys for Tots as a privilege and honor.� “We are going to fill a lot of barrels with toys!�

We look forward to seeing you there!

great, team, but somehow we’ve managed to eke out victories the last half decade that almost defy logic. Four of the last six games going into Saturday’s went down to the last possession; the last two went into overtime; we only narrowly defeated them in 2004 and 2006. And this year? This was a Kentucky team that beat South Carolina during the seven game stretch in which we defeated only Alabama-Birmingham, and then only in overtime. This was the year our poor seniors were playing for their third head coach and their fourth offensive coordinator. At the end of October, Kentucky fans were talking about going to the Gator Bowl. Tennessee fans were looking forward to basketball season. But then, mirabile dictu, Tennessee started playing like the Tennessee of old, and Kentucky, last Saturday at least, played like the Kentucky of old, and Saturday afternoon, for the 26th year in a row, my breathing difficulties disappeared. You never outgrow this stuff, do you?

Unity Ministries News By Bet tJewell We celebrated in a huge way at our annual Thanksgiving meal and it was a blessing to share and serve. We had several families that showed up, brought their children, and served in various ways. It was a blessing to see people join in because they have heard of our ministry and want to give and serve with us. We are blessed to have the support from several area churches with faithful mission-minded members. There were so very many who brought dishes, far too many to count. And then there were those faithful ministry members that cooked, delivered, cleaned, etc.

We delivered around 90 meals and sent leftover food to families that were in need, so it is hard to tell how many we fed. We had several join us at the church for the meal and the fellowship. We are not going to name those that we want to give a very special thanks to for fear of not listing them all, but we had some very special volunteers show up and just join in on serving and if you get the opportunity please give them a special word of thanks. We couldn’t do it without them. And to our faithful ministry members who work so hard behind the scenes and can always be called upon, may God bless you all over again!

Dyer Church of Christ Morning worship services had an attendance 191 and 145 in Sunday school. We had a special speaker with us for our Homecoming Minister Steve Watson from Athens, Georgia. The message for the early morning service came from the book of John 14, Going home one day. The message for the late morning service came from the book of Philippians, Why do we have a church? Do we try to know him better? Do we praise God? Do we encourage and challenge each other? Do we remember it’s not about us but always about God? The message for the evening service came from the book of Psalm 148 and 149, Praising God anywhere and anytime. Praising God with all we are. Remember in Prayer: Troy Mingle, Gail Alexander and family, Claude “Diddie� Cooper, Paul Gathings, Damon Campbell, all of our sick, shut-ins and one’s in the nursing home. We had a wonderful Homecoming this week. Many thanks to Steve Watson

and the Freed Hardeman Chorus for bringing a meaningful message and singing praises to God with us. William G. McFarland led the singing and it was glorious to hear such beautiful singing.

Announcements: The community is invited to attend the Dyer School Relay for life fundraiser.

We couldn’t have asked for more beautiful weather on this Youth Sunday. Everyone looked forward to the young people taking over for the day and we were not disappointed. Our Sunday school teachers were Madison Baird, Nathan Quast, Brittany Smith, Danielle Rickman and Lexi Whitley. Our music was led by Lauren Whitley and she was accompanied on piano by both Danielle Rickman and Nathan Quast. Michael Moeller and Robby Whitley served as ushers. The Acolytes were Ally and Libby Goad. Katie Rickman made the announcements and Cody Cooper read 1st John 2:2425 as our call to worship. Normally we have a children’s sermon, but we had all the older members of the church come forward for their “Senior’s Sermon.� We were visited by Elmira’s much younger sister, Elmena. Elmena (Chelsea Joyce) told us how bleach doesn’t always get out all the stains from our clothes, but Jesus has a sure way of removing the stains of sin from our lives. Our sermon was delivered by Robert Joyce. His message entitled “Learning to Live� was taken from Matthew 6. He used poetry, illustrations and quotes from rodeo and cowboy stars to make his point that the “dash� on our tombstones need to count for something. The way to truly living a productive life is to first, find God; second,

Keely Mill Our Sunday morning church service began with Scott Fields leading us in the hymn He Lives. Scott also brought us our morning devotional Putting the “thanks� back in Thanksgiving Psalm 118:1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever! Everyone dismissed to their Sunday school classes. Mike Fields opened the adult class in prayer then did a good job teaching the lesson Being Prepared from Ephesians 6:10-24. Christians can be prepared to resist what ever evil might come. Bro. Steve ministered to those in the Dyer Nursing Home and was back in time for the morning worship hour. Elaine Fields played the piano as Scott Fields and the choir lead us in the hymn “We Gather Together.� Jarid Warren opened services in prayer. Rejoice in the Lord always. Everyone joined in singing the beautiful old time hymns “Amazing Grace� and “Heavenly Sunlight.� Bro. Steve’s morning message was from 2 Corinthians 9:9-15. entitled

By Connie Cooper ask for His forgiveness, and third, start living with the right attitude. Robert is a freshman at UTM and also a member of the rodeo team. Great job, Robert! We were blessed with special music from the Whitley gals Sandy, Lindsey and Lauren. They sang an old gospel favorite, “Unclouded Day.� The family harmony was so good. Our evening service was devoted to hearing the gospel shared in not quite the traditional way as the band “Saul2Paul� performed and shared testimony. Bro. Don brought a message of encouragement to our youth to leave the past, learn to deal with the present and guard the future by living lives that would bring honor to God. After the concert, we enjoyed a chili supper with all the fixin’s and plenty of homemade cookies. Thanks to all who made this a special day and thank you for all who visited from our sister churches. Birthday wishes go out to Paige Hays, Jaxon Hays, and Jenny Davidson. Also coming up this week will be Christmas program practice and Bible study in Luke on Wednesday. On Saturday our youth will be delivering fruit baskets along with their caroling as they make a day of sharing the Christmas spirit. Quote for the day: remember, “When you are down to nothing; God is up to something!� Keep smiling and we’ll see you in church on Sunday.

By Diane Hamlin ‘Unspeakable Truths.’ William McDonald dismissed services in prayer. After services the church family enjoyed a Thanksgiving potluck meal in the fellowship hall. Our Sunday night services opened with Scott Fields leading us in the hymn Day by Day. Bro. John Fields opened us in prayer and we all dismissed to our discipleship classes. Keith Hamlin opened our class in prayer and then did a good job teaching our lesson Given a New Destiny. 1 Peter 1:3-4. Jesus’ death and resurrection provide life for us now and a place in heaven for us when we die. Christy Skelton closed us in prayer. Our Sunday night worship hour began with the hymns “Standing on the promises� and “The Way of the Cross Leads Home.� Dakota Warren blessed us with our special music by singing “Amazing Grace.� Bro. Steve opened services in prayer before bringing us our message The Son of God from Isaiah 7:14 - Luke 1:30-35. Jarid Warren dismissed services in prayer. Read your Bibles this week. We invite you to come worship the Lord with us. Sundays 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. keelymillbaptistchurch.com and facebook.

Bethpage By Joyce Brown What good food and fellowship we enjoyed with family and friends during the Thanksgiving season. Don’t you believe that God is pleased with our gratitude for all His many and great blessings. Carlton Williams and Charles Perryman had birthdays last week so they had to have a handful of change to pay for their song. Sunday worship began with “We Have Come Into His House� for quiet time and call to worship. Our welcome hymn was “Since Jesus Came Into My Heart.� We were glad to see Brenda Sawyer Moore at Bethpage Sunday. Charles and Peggy Perryman returned from several days in Texas visiting one of their daughters and family. Bro. James preached from Rom 6:6-10 addressing the question “Where is our identification with Christ. His Sunday night sermon text was Rev 1:1-11 titled “A Triumphant Theme.� The Smithson family entertained relatives from Miami during the holidays. The Littleton clan celebrated a couple of family birthdays with a chili supper

on Saturday night in the home of Jean and Riley. I’m sure there were many more celebrations and gatherings within our church family but those are the only ones I’ve been told about. Sympathy is extended to the family of Jerry Neisler who passed away last week. He is the grandfather of Andy Littleton. Get well wishes go to Roger Cochran who is recuperating from surgery last week. He seems to be doing really great and thanks everyone for their prayers. Angi Brown is visiting in Tennessee for a few days enjoying family and friends. Next Sunday morning Zach Cochran will be preaching our message at Bethpage. Come visit and see how God is blessing his life. There will be a reception honoring newlyweds Brock and Sarah Lowrance held at Bethpage on Saturday, December 11 from 2 to 4 p.m. All are invited to attend. Pulpit points: Every step toward Christ kills a doubt. Every thought, word and deed for Him carries you away from discouragement. Matt 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Kenton News What a wonderful season of Thanksgiving! Looking around the neighborhood and around town it was evident that many family and friends were gathered together to break bread and give thanks for the bounty that the Lord had provided throughout the year. Having their first Thanksgiving without their matriarch, the Davidson siblings and their offspring were still thankful to gather together at the home of Ronnie and Cindy Lamar in keeping with their family tradition. Tony and Drenda Lamar and sons, Gage and Gavin of Sidonia were hosts of the Lamar/ Sanders annual Thanksgiving dinner. Attending from Gibson were Eurby Sanders, Wallace and Jolene Keymon, Tammy Keymon, Kristy Keymon and sons, Bryce and Blaine. From Sidonia, Barbara Raspberry and coming from Knoxville was Greg Lamar. Bobby and Carol Primrose of Kenton and Marie Ragan of Dresden enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving meal with Carol’s niece and nephew Vonda and Ricky Matheny in Selmer. Erin Elliott, daughter of Terry and Darla Elliott of Dresden and granddaughter of Bobby and Carol Primrose was recently in Nashville along with several other members of the Beta Club from Dresden Elementary School. Preparing for the Christmas season, our town’s Christmas lights have been hung and throughout town citizens are hanging lights,

After a nice visit they continued on to Knoxville and had dinner and spent the night with Marie’s granddaughter, Madison McKenzie.

The Tri-City Reporter, Wednesday, December 1, 2010 Page 5

Lowrance Chapel By Jerry Bell Good day to you all. I want to apologize for not having our news for the past few weeks. I have experienced some computer problems but hopeful they are corrected. Our lesson study for today will be, “The Foundation of Thanksgiving� which I preached last Sunday morning. In a nutshell, “thanksgiving must be given to the one responsible for whatever it is that we are thankful for.� Our text was taken from Psalm 100:3-5. Verse five reads; “For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.� Regardless of our blessings, everyone who has a relationship with God can give thanks to God for these three things: The Lord is good; His mercy (love) endures forever; and His truth (faithfulness) endures to all generations. We have just had our traditional “Thanksgiving Day� on Thursday, November 25th. The first thanksgiving feast in the new colonies took place in 1619. In 1623, Governor William Bradford of the Plymouth Colonies made a proclamation; “that all the pilgrims, with their wives and their little ones, to gather at the meeting house, on the hill, between the hours of 9 and 12 in

the day time, on Thursday, November 29th, 1623 and to listen to their preacher and render thanksgiving to Almighty God for all His blessings.� On November 26, 1789, President George Washington also issued a proclamation for a nationwide day of thanksgiving. Later, President Abraham Lincoln made a proclamation in 1863, designating the last Thursday of November as Thanksgiving Day, a day for the nation to give thanks to Almighty God. The date was later changed to the fourth Thursday of November, by President Franklin Roosevelt, in order to encourage holiday shopping. Since that time, the real true meaning of what the original Thanksgiving Day has lost most of its meaning to our present day culture. By definition, thanks are a gift of words or deeds that is given to someone for a favor or kindness received. Suppose that you were driving by yourself down a dark, lonely road with no houses in site. All at once your car stalls and it will not start again. Probably you become frightened with the dark stillness in the air. No one seems to be traveling this road. Finally, someone appears out of the night and they stop and offer to help.

Clora’s Chapel Greetings from the Cloras Chapel family in Dyer. Cloras Chapel has been, still is, and is going to be busy, busy, busy. On Saturday, Nov. 20th, we had missionary meeting, session, and the gospel choir journeyed to Springhill Baptist Church in Central. They reported having a wonderful time and that Elder Keith Harris just showed out. The following Sunday morning in Sunday School as Elder Harris taught, he showed out again. We at Cloras Chapel are very proud of Elder Keith and how he lets the Holy Spirit use him. Sunday morning service, Pastor Myles showed out too. His message, which was titled, “Something About Thankfulness,� found in the 107th number of Psalms, was very inspiring and enjoyed by all. After service, Pastor Myles, Sis. Diane Myles, and Sis. Teresa Cawthon were enlighten with a presentation on Y.E.T. Ministry presented by Pastor Jeremy Myles. The gathering took place at the Grecian Restaurant in Dyersburg. There were other churches there and they reported having a good time. Please remember to pray for our sick and shut in members. To name a few, please pray for Sis. Mary Harris, Sis. Laura Rogers, Sis. Adean Carpenter, Sis.

After some time, the stranger asks you to “try it one more time� and you hear the roar of the engine. As you say “thank you� to the stranger, he gets back into his vehicle and says, “follow me� to the next town so that you will be safe. You may never see this stranger again, but you were “so thankful� that he came along. James tells us in 1:17 “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.� James clearly tells us that God is the one who gives every good and perfect gift to human beings. Therefore, God is the one who ultimately deserves our thanks. But when we take God out of the equation of thankfulness, as many are doing in our increasingly un-Christian culture, we are left with something like mailing a letter with no address on the outside. So the message doesn’t get delivered. As the Psalmist said; there are three things everyone can be thankful for, regardless of what is going on in our lives and they are. The goodness, steadfast love, and faithfulness of God. Are you thankful to God today?

By Robin McNeil

Evelyn Fields, Sis. Verdell Fisher, Sis. Myra Austin, Bro. Jeff Arnold, Bro. Bob Harris, Bro. M.G.Carpenter and Bro. William (Wheety) Bradford who is a patient at Trenton HealthCare Center. There are many more and we pray for them all. We missed Bro. Kenny Wayne Finch, Elder Walton Nolan, Reina, Desiree and Sis. Felicia Eskew and many others at church Sunday and we were glad to have Bro. Joe Albea. Cloras Chapel was in sincere sympathy for the family of Sis. Cora Bell and the Pruitt Family. Tuesday night before Thanksgiving Cloras Chapel’s Pastor and church had Thanksgiving service with Mt. Zion Worship Center at 6:30 pm. We gave thanks for God’s goodness and had a good time in the name of Jesus. In our Sunday morning worship service Pastor Myles ask all a question,�Do you obey God?� The title of his message was “If You Obey, God Will Make A Way!� The male chorus sang from their hearts and the spirit was high. We had

a wonderful day. Sunday afternoon we had our “Parade for Christ.� We marched from the Exon Station to the church and had a very spiritual service. We had prayer in downtown Dyer and some of the walkers were walking for someone in need of a blessing. Our special guest was Bishop Nesbitt and his church, “Word of Faith Ministries,� from Dyersburg. We had a 50 state pageant in our service and the state representative with the most funds received a box of Jimmy Dean hotdogs, which was Evangelist Melinda Davis. Cloras Chapel will be having men’s conference, Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. Rev. William Johnson from Williams Chapel Baptist Church from Humboldt will facilitate the conference. All men are invited to come. The conclusion will be Sunday afternoon at 3. The theme is “The Holy Spirit Empowers Us to be Witnesses.� Acts 1:8. Be blessed and have a good week!

Sunday School for Shut-In Whether you’re 18 or 118, this is for you with love. Whether you’ve been reading the Bible a long time or just starting today, this for you in love. The Apostle Paul wrote a heart-felt letter to the young Timothy saying, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;” (Second Timothy 1:7). When you’re ready, please read 1 John 4:18. God put fear into humankind DNA so we could fear Him (Proverbs 1:7). There is no fear when the unconditional love of God abides in us, but if we believe He first loved us and sent Jesus to be our Savior (1 John 4:14). God did that before we know to ask. In the same way, God saw that the first Adam needed a wife, before Adam knew what a wife would be. God is the one who made Adam’s wife. She was made to order. God is always prepared. The disciples were about to see a horrible ordeal. They’d watch as Jesus was beaten until He looked like a deer that had been run over by a train. Then they’d watch as Roman soldiers nailed Him to the cross; for

By Mary King

their sin and for ours. Before that, Jesus told His disciples not to let their hearts be troubled. He reminded them that since they believed in God, they could belie e in Him (John 14:1). Even then, He was telling them that He was God. He was going to return to heaven. Then He said to them, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am there you may be also” John 14:3 KJV. There was no need to be afraid. God is prepared. Who said so? Jesus. God knows what we need before we ask. Give us today our daily bread, the word of God. “And the Lord shall help them and deliver them, He shall deliver them from the wicked and save them because they trust in Him” Psalms 37:40 KJV. There seems to be extra worry these days. In Isaiah 49:25 the word declares; “But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee and I will save thy children.

Laneview Baptist Church It was a great day to be in God’s house this past Sunday. We enjoyed a special by Johnny Cavender and another by Tim Fout. In the absence of Bro. Darryl and Miss Beth this week Bro. Joey Holloway presented the message and Ann Thompson played the piano. Bro. Joey’s message ask the question “Are we playing games with God?” Are we treating our worship and love for God seriously or are we just playing a game? Do we only worship when we want too? Our Jesus will be returning one day. What will you be doing playing or worshiping? It’s time to stop playing games and start worshiping the one who gave His life for us. It really is more than just a game! Bro. Joey spoke again Sunday evening in Bro. Darryl’s absence. It’s such

a blessing to have someone willing to step up and speak when the pastor is out. God is really at work in Bro. Joey’s life and we are so thankful for him and his family. We enjoyed another special in the evening service by Tim Fout.

Golden Agers By Alice Ernest Joy abounded in the fellowship of 13 Golden Agers that met at FBC November 24.

Ernie Adams and J.B. Freeze who faces surgery December 15. Brother Legg asked for our prayers as he goes on mission to Brazil December 1. Brother DeWayne Goodgine chose Deuteronomy 28”1-2 for the scripture of his Thanksgiving devotional. God promises that if we obey him, He will bless us. Alternatively is we disobey, we’ll be cursed according to Malachi 3:8-9. Brother Goodgine urged his listeners to transmit God’s blessings to us to others with phone calls or notes of encouragement. All those present expressed those things for which they are thankful. These comprised the words from God (the Bible), our Golden Agers group, family members who are in Christ fold, physical mobility, our church, ability to remain at home, our churches to whom we belong and our privilege to reach out to others through programs in our church.

ART INSTRUCTION - 21st Century Afterschool art instructor, Patrick Fulwood and student Scarlett Duncan discuss her drawing.

HOUSE FIRE - Firefighters Clay McEwen and Mark Muirhead battle a fully involved house fire being fueled by high winds at 106 Rutherford Hwy. out of Kenton Monday night. The old house was being used for storage and a workshop. It was located between two house trailers that the firemen were able to save with only minor damage. Firefighters from Gibson County Stations #5 Tyson, #7 Good Luck, Kenton and Rutherford Fire Departments battled the blaze in the 30 mph winds for over two hours. The old house was a total loss. The cause of the fire was thought to be a short in a electric cord. (photo by Lori Cathey)

and T.S. Eliot. Students explore the connections between art and literacy by creating their own interpretive illustrations. Students are guided through the creative process by creating, drawing characters, settings, and discussing various concepts, such as conflict and plot. Fulwood plans on working on Cubism and mixed media in the near future with these groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are tons of evidence that art involvement improves gains in math, reading and verbal skill, as well as providing children a creative outlet not expressed by mouth or writing,â&#x20AC;? said Fulwood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am so excited to work with these children and see what they can do,â&#x20AC;? he added.

I value highly those things done by small children. They are the first and purest source of artistic creationâ&#x20AC;? - Franz Cizek The GCSSD 21st Century Afterschool Program has added a special art class under the direction of local artist, Patrick Fulwood. This early learning art class introduces young children to the wonderful world of art by letting their natural creative abilities unfold in a fun environment. While they are exploring color, texture, shapes, and different types of art materials, they are learning to freely express their feeling and ideas through art projects. Fulwood instructs basic art at five of the afterschool programs including Dyer, Rutherford, Kenton, Springhill and Yorkville. Each program has recently been studying art and literacy and interpreting poems by Robert Browning

LEARNING BASIC PRINCIPLES - Megan Yochum, 21st Century Afterschool art student, and Patrick Fulwood, art instructor, go over basic principle to art and illustration.
