Our community has few planned events as coronavirus is still active in our area, and some of us have been sidelined by an active upper respiratory virus.

The 12-session Bible study hosted by Clarksbury Church and led by Angie Revels continues Sunday, Feb. 26 at 6 p.m. in the fellowship hall. Titled “Twelve Women of the Bible – Life-Changing Stories for Women Today,” the study will feature Hannah on Sunday. Everyone is invited.

North Iredell High Sophomore Bray Trivette won the 3-A 138-lb. title at the North Carolina State Wrestling Championship Saturday in Greensboro. He is the son of Billy and Marna Bray of Dyson Road, and the family attends Clarksbury Church. Bray, all of us in County Line are proud of you and your accomplishment. Congratulations.   

Naomi Elizabeth Wall finally made her world debut Thursday of last week at home on NC 901. Weighing 9 lbs. 15 oz.,  she was too big for her onesies and infant wear upon arrival.  Her parents, Pastor Cliff and Christi Wall of Clarksbury and siblings Grace, Ian, Anna, Silas, Catherine, Benjamin, and Stephen welcomed her with great joy and excitement.  All of us in County Line send congratulations to the Walls.

Our community sends happy-birthday wishes to Frances Evans Beeson, who was 90 on Wednesday.  She continues to enjoy living in the home she and her late husband Kelly built on her family farm off Old Mocksville Highway a few years after their marriage. Today she enjoys the company of her granddaughter Autumn, who lives with her. Frances, all of us in County Line congratulate you upon reaching this milestone in life and wish you a happy and healthy new year of life.

We send get-well wishes to Alice Cartner Waugh, who has been treated for pneumonia and breathing problems at Forsyth Medical Center. Dorman Beck and Darlyn Rivers have improved and are recuperating at their homes. Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon these residents and others who are having health problems.

Remember in prayer the family of Melody Nicholson Williams, who died Tuesday of last week at home after a brief illness;  Melody was a daughter of the late Aldean Nicholson and granddaughter of the late Woodrow and Nina Nicholson, formerly of County Line. Pray for former President Jimmy Carter and wife Rosalyn, admired and beloved world-wide for their devotion to God and humanitarian efforts, as he has opted for hospice care at home. Continue to remember in prayer the families affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria as the death toll was almost 47,000 as of last Monday.
