County Line Correspondent

The coronavirus continues to affect our County Line community. We have few planned community events except for local church services.

Sunday, Oct. 18, the Rev. Dr. Noell Williamson will be guest speaker at the 11 a.m. worship service at Society Baptist Church. He is the executive director of the South Yadkin Baptist Association.

Other local churches have these service schedules this week, but contact the church for any updates weather may require:      Calvary Baptist, indoor Sunday worship at 11 a.m.; Clarksbury United Methodist,   outdoor Sunday worship at 10:45 a.m. and indoor special “Book of John” Bible study at 7 p.m. Thursday; Piney Grove AME Zion,   indoor Sunday school at 10 a.m. and worship at 11 a.m.; Pleasant View Baptist , regular indoor services Sunday and Wednesday; Salem United Methodist, indoor Sunday worship at 9:30 a.m. with social distancing and masks in the sanctuary.

All services for local churches will continue online on FaceBook, YouTube, or church website.

Upcoming community events include the annual Harmony Hill Camp Meeting Oct. 23-25 and “Trunk of Treat” Saturday, Oct. 31 at Clarksbury United Methodist Church.     

Our community sends get-well wishes to Regina Walker Benfield, who has been at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and had knee surgery last week.  Paul Ressa remains at Forsyth Medical Center. Faye Stroud continues to rest at home while under treatment for cancer.  Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Regina, Paul, Faye, and other residents who are having health problems.

Remember in prayer the many families affected by the hurricanes in the  southern states and the continued wide-spread fires in the western states.  Pray for the many families affected by the coronavirus as the number of coronavirus-related deaths in our country passed 215,000 last Monday and the number of infectious cases continue to rise in most states.  Please practice the three Ws:  Wear a mask.  Wait 6 – 8 feet apart.  Wash your hands.
