Getting in the Christmas spirit? Ready for a Christmas venture but want to remain safe? Then visit the “Christmas Live Nativity Drive-Thru”  sponsored by the Clarksbury United Methodist Youth from 6-8 p.m. Friday and Saturday,  Dec. 11-12. For added enhancement as you drive thru, turn your radio to 99.3 FM. Also, bags of treats will be given out. The event is free but donations for church youth projects will be accepted. Clarksbury is on NC 901 about 3.2 miles from US 64 West.  Everyone is invited.

Our local churches have these service schedules this week, but please contact the church for any updates: Calvary Baptist, no services until Sunday, Jan. 3, due to the increased spread of the coronavirus; Clarksbury Methodist, outdoor Sunday worship at 10 a.m. and indoor “Book of John” Bible study at 7 p.m. Thursday; both with masks and social distancing; Piney Grove AME Zion, outdoor Sunday worship at 10 a.m.; Pleasant View Baptist, regular indoor services Sunday and Wednesday; Salem Methodist, indoor Sunday worship at 9:30 a.m. with social distancing and masks in the sanctuary; Society Baptist, no Sunday and  Wednesday services this week.

The church of Jesus Christ is not the building but is the body of members.  For the well-being of all attendees, some worship services in the churches have been canceled and/or are streamed online via FaceBook, YouTube, or church website as previously stated.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Gail Evans Mitchell, who was hat Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center after suffering a stroke and is recuperating at home. 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 Gail, Faye, and other residents who are having health problems.

Continue to pray for the families affected by the coronavirus. Davie County remains a state-wide hot spot. Pray for our country as the count of infection cases was almost 15 million.  Pray for our state as the rate of positive tests per total tests recorded was a high of 10.5 percent. Lives could be saved if everyone would respect and care about others and wear a mask and social distance when with others.
