County Liners continue to deal with hot humid weather;  but as photos show, Piney Grove folks find lots of fun at the Donald Gray Drama and Acting Camp 2023 in Cleveland.

It’s the beginning of church-homecoming time.  Clarksbury Methodist will celebrate Sunday, Aug. 20.  After Sunday school at 9 a.m., Pastor Charlie Curtis will bring the homecoming message at 10. A covered-dish dinner will follow in the fellowship hall. Drinks and meats will be provided. Church members invite everyone to bring a basket of food and memories to share for this special time of celebration.

Piney Grove AME Zion Church will have a combined anniversary celebration church choirs at 3 p.m. this Sunday. Church members invite everyone to come and help them lift up the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in song.

Upcoming community events: country ham and sausage breakfast sponsored by the V-Point Ruritans from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 2; and Iredell County Agricultural Fair Friday, Sept. 1-Saturday, Sept. 9.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Ann Cartner Cline, who was hospitalized last week and has been recuperating at home since Tuesday of last week.  Lorene Macemore has improved and is in rehab at Rowan Regional Medical Center. Alice Waugh and Mildred Beck remain in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing upon Ann,  Lorene, Alice, Mildred, and others who have health problems.

Please continue to pray for the Lord’s divine healing of 13-year old. Caleb Williams as he takes oral chemotherapy treatments at Wake Forest Baptist Brenner Children’s Hospital.  Also, pray for the Lord’s divine healing of Caroline McManus Jones as she begins treatment at North Carolina University Health Center of Chapel Hill.
