County Liners continue to favor the warmth of being inside during the cold rainy days. But, folks did not let the cold morning temps hinder them from enjoying a country ham and sausage breakfast with the V-Point Ruritans last Saturday. The Ruritans appreciate greatly everyone’s support of their breakfast fundraiser.

Clarksbury United Methodist Church is hosting a new 12-session Bible study led by Angie Revels at 6 p.m. on Sundays. The title is “Twelve Women of the Bible – Life-Changing Stories for Women Today.” The first session was held last Sunday and the next is Sunday, Feb. 12.

The Women on Missions of Calvary Baptist will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13.  Martha Harding will lead a program on mission work and needs in North America. The women will have a meal and fellowship prior to the program.  They invite others interested in North American missions.

Billy and Priscilla Steele Holmes celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with friends and family at the V-Point Building Saturday, Jan. 28.  The couple was married in Iredell County on Jan. 27, 1973.  Billy and Priscilla, all of us in County Line congratulate you upon reaching this milestone in your marriage and wish you many more.

Get-well wishes to Jerry Thorne, who was recently hospitalized and is recuperating at home. Gary Hanlin and Cherie Ramsey have improved and are recuperating at their homes. Darlyn H. Rivers has improved and is in rehab at Novant Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Winston-Salem.  Alice C. Waugh’s breathing has improved, and she has returned to Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Mocksville.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Jerry, Gary, Cherie, Darlene, Alice, and other residents having health problems.
