Providence Baptist Church had Vacation Bible School this past week. They had a good turnout, and everyone had fun.
If you don’t have a church, I invite you to Providence Baptist. We are located at 2950 Coosa County Road 459 off Alabama Highway 22 West. Sunday School is at 10 and worship at 11. Everyone is invited.
The Coosa County Historical Society met on Sunday at Twenty-Two & Crew (the old drugstore) in Rockford. We showed two old films that had been converted to DVD.
One was a sawmill operation in the county, and the other was filmed at various places around Rockford. The cars looked to be 1940 models with some earlier ones. We were able to recognize some of the people, or at least a family name by the resemblance. Everyone enjoyed it.
The cost for the names to be engraved on the Veteran’s Memorial will be $150 per name. I will be in contact in the next couple of weeks with those who have already contacted me.
Hopefully, we will be able to get the engraving done late September/early October. So, if you haven’t contacted me already there is still time. Please text or email me at the contact information at the end of this column.
The Richville Volunteer Fire Department has two fundraisers coming up. The first will be bingo on August 20 at 6:30. The other will be the Labor Day Boston Butt Sale. So, make plans to attend bingo and buy your ticket for the sale.
The scripture passage for this week is again in Psalms, which is a wonderful book to read and study. Psalm 121:1-2 reads, “I lift my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
What a promise for each of us. This day and age many times people need assistance in some way or another. Often without knowing where to turn or who to ask. But these verses tell us to ask God for help first; He will provide.
Sometimes it may come in a different form than we expect so we think that God didn’t answer our prayers. However, sometimes what we think we need is not what God knows is in our best interest. Be patient; remember God answers prayers, but not always how we asked.
Continue to keep those who have lost loved ones recently in your prayers. There are several in our community that are not feeling well, so please pray for their healing in God’s will. God knows their names and needs. Until next week, take care and be joyful!
