  • Precept Bible study planned

    "Kinsmen Redeemer" is the perfect Bible study for those who have never taken a Precept class before.

    It is a study of the Book of Ruth and tells about the one who loves you so much that he would pay the ultimate price for you.

    Precept Bible studies reach across denominational lines without compromising the truth of God's word.

    Classes will be hosted on Sundays from Oct. 25 through Nov. 15 at Taylor's Chapel United Methodist Church, located on Taylor Chapel Road in Green County, from 4 to 6 p.m. ET. The cost of materials is $15.

  • Grace Notes

    Before the worship service started we had eaten dinner together, me with my tape recorder and notebook by my side.

    I don't normally go to church on Wednesday nights, but I had come to New Beginnings Fellowship in Hernando, Fla., for a Religion Page feature story and to take notes about their worship.

    As the people entered the sanctuary, some grabbed musical instruments from a cardboard box in the back of the room - maracas and wooden sticks, cymbals and tambourines. During the first song, people used the instruments, making their own music.
