  • Parson's ponderings

    We are in a season of transition at our congregation; but then, any growing congregation is always in a season of transition. In fact, the world in which we live is in constant transition.

    It's easy to get discouraged when there's so much transition and change. "Why can't we just do it the way we've always done?" "I just can't find the time." "I have too much to do; I'm too busy." We've all said these words.

  • After 18 months, Church of God congregation back home

    Four walls and a roof can provide comfort, but as the members of the Church of God of Campbellsville have learned, all you need to have a church is faith.

    Their faith was tested one Sunday 18 months ago when, due to a question of ownership, the congregation was locked out of the church. For the next year and a half, they fought to get it back.

    "That day, it was just so devastating," said Anna Noyola, youth director/coordinator. She has been with the church for about 10 years.
