After the coldest temps last weekend since December 2022, County Liners are welcoming the wild swing to rainy temps in the 50s to 60s this week. It was a good time to hover inside and watch TV, work puzzles, and enjoy other family time activities.

As photos show, working a large, detailed puzzle is a fun activity at the home of Beverly and Billy Stroud on bad weather days.

Sunday, Jan. 28, Society Baptist Church will feature Missions Sunday at the 11 a.m. worship service. Representatives from the mission groups of the church will present a review of projects during 2023 and opportunities for mission in 2024. Local, state, national, and international missions will be included.

The 10th of the 12-week Bible study for women at Clarksbury Methodist Church will be Sunday at 6 p.m. featuring Elizabeth; the wife of Zacharias and the Mother of John, who baptized Jesus (Luke 1: 1 – 45).  Everyone is invited.

Upcoming community events: country ham and sausage breakfast by the V-Point Ruritans from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 3; and community spaghetti dinner Sunday, Feb. 11 at Calvary Baptist Church.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Jeff E. Thorne, who has been at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Shirley Lewis remains in rehab at Bermuda Village of Davie. Caleb Williams continues immunotherapy treatments at Wake Forest Baptist Brenner Children’s Hospital, and Caroline Jones continues radiation treatments in Chapel Hill.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Jeff, Shirley, Caleb, Caroline, and others who are having health problems. Continue to pray for those who are affected by the flu, covid, and respiratory virus.
