  • Lewis & Lewis coming to Fairview Baptist

    Singing/songwriting duo Lewis & Lewis from Nashville, Tenn. will be performing their hit song "Come On Down To The Farm" on Saturday, July 19 at Fairview Baptist Church in Mannsville.

    The concert begins at 7 p.m.

    Although it has been one of the most requested songs on the King of Kings Radio network in Somerset, the song was shunned by many stations because of its controversial view of same-sex marriage. Many stations have since added it to their play-lists after the success of the couple's humorous music video posted on the Internet.

  • Grace Notes: Small churches, big hearts

    As I write this, it's Elizabeth Weimer's birthday. I've never met her and don't know who she is, but I know July 1 is her birthday because I visited her church last Sunday night and it was in the bulletin.

    My husband and I had visited Yankeetown Community Church as guests of Barbara Arnold, whom I had never met either. She has been e-mailing me for about a year or more, inviting me to visit their church one Sunday night.

    Finally, I marked my calendar for Sunday, June 29, the night of their church's "singspiration" program, and gave Barbara my word that I'd come.
