County Line: Vaccinations Friday at Piney Grove

By Shirley Thorne

County Line Correspondent

Our community and state continue to battle the spread of the coronavirus. Last reported there were 500 Iredell students in quarantine. The most effective way to slow the spread remains vaccinations and the three Ws    wear mask, wait six feet, and wash hands.  Coronavirus vaccinations are available for anyone age 16 and over.

If you have not been vaccinated, please remember Piney Grove AME Zion Church is hosting a coronavirus vaccination event Friday. Although the deadline for signing up was yesterday Wednesday, there may still be some available time slots. For more information, please call Vickie Turner-Brown on 704-657-7365 or Denise Holland on 704-450-2824. Medical statistics show the effect of the coronavirus on a person who has been vaccinated is milder than on someone who has not been vaccinated.

Sunday, April 25, Calvary Baptist Church will begin having Sunday school again. Hence, Sunday school will be at 10 a.m. followed by worship at 11 a.m. Justin Bushly of Rock of Ages Prison Ministries will be guest speaker during the worship service.

Society Baptist Church will continue to collect money for “Food Roundup” for Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina through April.  If you would like to donate, call Gene Tutterow on 336-408-0405.

Clarksbury United Methodist Church will conclude 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 21 & 22.

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

Our community sends get-well wishes to Rhonda Griffith Bridgeman, who was hospitalized last week with a virus infection and is recuperating at home. Kathy B. Foster is recuperating at home and is receiving physical therapy.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Rhonda, Kathy, and others who are having health problems.  Remember in prayer the families of Martha Stroud Pardue and Jack & Robin Stevenson Fowler.  Martha’s husband Don died at home Wednesday of last week.  Jack’s father Anslo “Bordie” died last week. Continue to pray for the families affected by the coronavirus.  Pray that folks will get the coronavirus vaccination when eligible and continue to wear masks when out and around others even if vaccinated as requested by medical professionals.
