The Young at Heart of Society Baptist will meet at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb.y 20.  The group invites other senior adults in the community.

The meeting of the Bible study for women at Clarksbury Methodist Church last Sunday was canceled due to sickness. The study will be held Sunday, Feb. 18 at 6 p.m. l and will feature Anna, a prophetess who served the Lord and spoke of Him to all who looked for redemption in Jerusalem  (Luke 2: 36 – 38).  Everyone is invited.

Upcoming community events: a Black History service at 11 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 25 followed by a poor man’s dinner at Piney Grove AME Zion Church; and a country ham and sausage breakfast sponsored by the V-Point Ruritans from 7-10 a.m. Saturday, March 2 at the V-Point Building.

As photos show, Bray Trivette reached 100 wins and 100 pins as a wrestler at North Iredell High this season. He will go to the state tournament this weekend for the third time. He was runner-up his freshman year, won first at 138 lbs. last year as a sophomore, and will compete this year at 150 lbs. as a junior. Bray, all of us in County Line are proud of you for your wrestling accomplishments and for your Christian witness as a member of Clarksbury Methodist.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Terry Wayne Dyson, who has been diagnosed with the rare illness amyloidosis.  Shirley Lewis has improved and is recuperating at home. Caroline Jones has completed a series of radiation treatments in addition to chemotherapy.

Caleb Williams is an extremely courageous young 14-year-old. On Dec. 28, he had chemotherapy- embolization. On Jan. 22, test results showed the treatment had killed a big part of the liver tumor. He will have targeted radiation to kill the remaining tumor. He will continue immunotherapy and chemotherapy treatments for at least four more rounds. He will then have liver resection and removal of affected lymph nodes at Duke.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Terry Wayne, Shirley, Caroline, Caleb, and others who are having health problems. Pray for the Lord’s continued guidance in the treatments of Terry Wayne, Caroline, and Caleb and blessings upon their families. We are thankful for His blessings thus far. Continue to pray for those who are affected by the flu, covid, and respiratory virus.
