As photos show, some County Line kids ended summer vacation with an enjoyable time at Clarksbury United Methodist “Barnyard Roundup” VBS last week.

Please exercise caution when you are driving and see kids at a bus stop. Be sure to stop when you see an extended stop arm or flashing red lights. Children, remember to cross the road in front of the bus if you must cross the road. Here’s wishing all a successful healthy school year.

Society Baptist Church will have a gospel singing at 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 29.  The featured group will be “The Freedom Way” quartet. After the singing there will be an ice cream social.  The church continues to meet in the fellowship hall for Sunday morning and evening worship and Wednesday evening Bible study and prayer while the sanctuary air-conditioning system is being replaced.

Salem United Methodist Church has canceled homecoming, regularly held the fourth Sunday in September since the number of coronavirus and variants in the area have increased. Regular services will be held.

Upcoming events: a community-wide fish fry hosted by Calvary Baptist Saturday, Sept. 18; and homecoming celebrating 200th at Society Baptist Sunday, Sept. 19.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Martha Ann Gaither York, who has been at Iredell Memorial Hospital. Gene Snow has improved and is recuperating at home. 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 Martha Ann, Gene, Alice, and others who are having health problems. Remember in prayer former Society Baptist Pastor Jeff Holder and family;  his mother died last week. Remember in prayer those families affected by the destructive flooding in Canton and in Waverly, Tenn.

Continue to pray for the families affected by the coronavirus and its variants.  Our state’s daily positive virus test rate has increased to 13.1 percent as of last Monday.  Pray for the well-being of our kids.
