It’s peak fall foliage time in our community and state, and many of us are taking day-trips to the mountains. As we begin to prepare for colder temps ahead, it’s also a good time to ensure our home smoke alarms and heat and carbon monoxide detectors are in good working condition. Then we can relax and enjoy community fall events and festivals.
Members of Piney Grove AME Zion Church invite everyone to their fall festival Saturday, Oct. 30. Activities begin at 2 p.m. and include a Halloween costume contest, games, treat bags plus hotdogs, chips, and drinks. Come and enjoy an afternoon of family fun and fellowship.
The Baptist Men of Society will meet at 7 a.m. Saturday in the fellowship hall. The group invites others to join them for breakfast and prayer followed by a discussion of upcoming community projects and needs.
Clarksbury United Methodist Church will host a “Trunk or Treat” from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 31 in the parking lot. Everyone is invited to enjoy a bowl of chicken stew while trick or treating.
Society Baptist Church will have a gospel singing at 6 p.m. Sunday. The Gospel Voices of Union Grove will be the featured group. A love offering will be taken. Church members invite everyone to this evening worship in music.
During November, Calvary Baptist Church will collect toys for the South Yadkin Baptist Association Toy Store for families of need at Christmas. All members are asked to bring a new toy for a child.
Upcoming community events: homecoming Sunday, Nov. 7 at Calvary Baptist and fall fellowship from 5-7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7 at Society Baptist.
County Line native Mildred Cartner Beck will celebrate her 93rd birthday Sunday. She continues to enjoy her new home and activities at Brookdale Peachtree in Statesville. She also enjoys cards from relatives and friends. Mildred, all of us in County Line wish you a blessed birthday and a healthy and happy new year.
Sadie Wilcox continues to rest comfortably at Gordon Hospice House. Alice C. Waugh remains in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehab Center of Mocksville.
Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Sadie, Alice, and other residents who are having health problems. Continue to pray for the many families in our area affected by the coronavirus. Our state’s daily positive test rate has continued to decrease to 5.6 percent as of last Monday.
