County Line: Tanglewood celebration follows Piney Grove VBS

By Shirley Thorne

County Line Correspondent

Summertime in County Line means it’s vacation Bible school time – a time of Bible stories, crafts, singing, picnics, and fellowship. As photos show, folks of all ages enjoyed Bible school hosted by Piney Grove AME Zion last week.  There is more fun to come as we have two Bible schools scheduled in August.

Members of Salem United Methodist Church invite everyone for a hamburger and hotdog cookout at 6 p.m. Saturday at the church picnic shelter.  Anyone may bring a side dish, dessert, or drink to share. Come and meet new church pastor, the Rev. Ellen Spurill, and enjoy food and fellowship.

The Rev. Gene Tutterow will be the guest speaker at the 11 a.m. worship service at Society Baptist Sunday, July 25. Everyone is invited. The church will resume Sunday night worship service at 7 the second Sunday in August.     

Upcoming community events: vacation Bible school at Society Baptist Church Sunday, Aug.1-Wednesday, Aug. 4; country ham and sausage breakfast by the V-Point Ruritans Saturday, Aug. 7; Matthew 25 5K Walk/Run fundraiser Saturday, Aug. 14; Clarksbury United Methodist homecoming Sunday, Aug. 15; and vacation Bible school at Clarksbury United Methodist Sunday, Aug. 15-Tuesday, Aug. 17.

Alice C. Waugh remains in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehab Center of Mocksville. Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Alice and other residents who are having health problems.

Pray for the families affected by the coronavirus and its variants; pray that folks will get vaccinated.  Since the first week of July and holiday celebrations, our state’s daily percent of positive tests has increased from 2-3 percent to 5.8 percent as of last Monday.  Just please get vaccinated and possibly save your life and the lives of others.
