Most celebrations of the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King were via video; but, as photos show, members of Piney Grove AME Zion Church held an outdoor service celebrating his legacy Sunday of last week.

Due to the coronavirus prevalence, local churches continue with limited services following medical directives and online viewing as previously stated.

Beginning Sunday, Jan. 31, Society Baptist Church will hold Sunday 11 a.m. worship service in the church sanctuary and beginning Wednesday, Feb. 3,  will hold Wednesday 7 p.m. prayer and Bible study.

Beginning this week, the Thursday 7 p.m. Bible study at Clarksbury United Methodist Church will feature the book of Revelations.

Shirley P. Lewis remains in rehab at Bermuda Village in Advance. 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 Shirley, Faye, and  others who are having health problems. Remember in prayer Walter and Susan Phipps;  his sister Judy Lawrence died last Saturday after a battle with the coronavirus. Also, remember in prayer Tyler Lingle,  grandson of the late Jean T. Snyder;  he has coronavirus at Rowan Regional Medical Center.

Word has been received of the death of Barry Michael Wilson on Wednesday of last week at Gordon Hospice House of Statesville.  Pray for Barry’s family at this time of sorrow.
