As churches begin to plan Easter sunrise services, we want to make sure our cemeteries look nice.  Please remove Christmas and weather-worn floral arrangements from the graves of loved ones.    

Remember the Bible study at 7 p.m. tonight (Thursday) at Clarksbury United Methodist Church.  Pastor Wall will discuss Chapters 14 & 15 of Revelations.

Local churches continue to have limited worship and prayer/Bible study services with medical directives and online viewing as previously stated. Contact church offices or a member for updated changes..

Please remember the “Annual Cool Spring Alumni Dinner Meeting” always held the first Saturday in May has been canceled this year due to the continued spread of the coronavirus.

Upcoming community events include: Holy Thursday service at 7 p.m. followed by Easter sunrise service at 7 a.m., breakfast at 8 a.m., worship at 9 a.m., and children’s egg hunt Sunday, April 4 , at Clarksbury United Methodist Church; and joint Salem-Center Easter sunrise service at 7 a.m. Sunday, April 4, at Center.

Eva Campbell celebrated her 96th birthday Thursday, March 11 with family at her home. She loves her Piney Grove Church family but has been unable to attend since last April due to the coronavirus. She enjoys the loving care of her daughters and enjoys cards and calls from friends and family.  Mrs. Eva, all of us in County Line wish you a happy and healthy new year of life.

Agnes Wooten celebrated her 93rd birthday Friday, March 19 with family at her home. A longtime faithful member of Clarksbury United Methodist Church and the choir, she has been unable to attend for several years. She continues to enjoy getting cards and hearing from folks. Mrs. Agnes, all of us in County Line wish you a happy and healthy new year of life.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Janie Williams, who has been at Forsyth Medical Center. Paul Ressa is recuperating in a hotel near the Mayo Clinic following his successful heart surgery; he is awaiting follow-up appointments with his doctors.  Faye Stroud continues to rest at home under treatment for cancer.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Janie, Paul, Faye, and others who are having health problems.  Continue to pray for the families affected by the coronavirus.
