County Liners enjoyed a beautiful Easter weekend and Resurrection Sunday.  As photos show,  folks of all ages enjoyed the traditional egg hunts.

Clarksbury United Methodist Church will continue the Bible study on the book of Revelations at 7 p.m. today (Thursday) in the sanctuary.  Pastor Wall will lead the study on Chapters 17 & 18.

Sunday, April 11, Society Baptist Church will return to regular Sunday morning services with Sunday school at 9:45 followed by worship at 11.  Prayer and Bible study will meet at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays.

A memorial service celebrating the life of Luther “Renny” Holton Jr. will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday at Clarksbury. Renny died April 7, 2020, from complications of Parkinson’s disease. Due to the coronavirus restrictions, a memorial service had to be delayed. Retired from the U.S. Postal Service, he was the husband of the former Carol Ann Wooten and a member of Clarksbury and the Cool Spring High Class of ’63.

During April, Calvary Baptist Church is collecting nonperishable breakfast foods for the South Yadkin Baptist Association Food Pantry as the supply on such items is low and the need is great. For donations, please contact Peggy Carlton on 336-492-7114 or any church member.

Janie Williams has improved and is recuperating at home. Faye Stroud continues to rest at home under treatment for cancer. Curtis Safriet continues his extensive physical therapy and is improving after being critically injured in an auto crash.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Janie, Faye, Curtis, and others who are having health problems.

Continue to pray for the families affected by the coronavirus. If you have not got your coronavirus vaccination, please be sure to get vaccinated so that the expected surge of new infections will be minimal.   Pray that folks will continue to wear masks when out and around others even if vaccinated as medical professionals advise.
