Fall will arrive Saturday. County Liners are hoping there will be no more 90-degree days until next year but have been enjoying the cooler temps the past week.  As photos show, last Sunday folks celebrated the 202nd anniversary of the founding of Society Baptist Church, the oldest church in our community.

Also, Piney Grove AME Zion Church celebrated “Grandparent’s Day,” which was Sept. 10.

Clarksbury Methodist Church will host a 12-week Bible study for women beginning Sunday, Sept. 24.  The study will be at 6 p.m. in the fellowship hall each Sunday and will feature the life of a woman in the Bible.  Everyone is invited.

The quilt ministry of Society Baptist will meet at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 27.  The group invites others interested in quilting.

Piney Grove AME Zion Church homecoming is  Sunday, Oct. 8.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Tommie Ross and Hazel Smoot.  Tommie has been at Iredell Memorial Hospital for injuries from a fall.  Hazel has been at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and was supposed to be released for rehab last Monday.

Caleb Williams and Caroline Jones continue with their treatment plans.  Alice Waugh and Mildred Beck remain in rehab at Davie Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s healing upon Tommie, Hazel, Caleb, Caroline, Alice, Mildred, and others with health problems. Remember in prayer Nancy P. Koontz and family;  her mother Mildred D. Phelps died last week.  Continue to remember in prayer David Call, whose wife Linda died Sep. 7;  he has been unable to drive since suffering a stroke.
