  • Coalfield

        The past week many of our churches had their VBS programs. We await some feedback. Munro Nix gave us some great stories which were told at the Middle Creek Church VBS. Little ones share stories from their own unique perspective; I love their interpretation. Look on Pam Bozeman’s Facebook for photos. Our community is extremely thankful for the hardwork that the members put into this affair to make it a success. I know that all of the children look forward to this all school year.

  • The amazing month of June

        With so many exciting month-long events, temperate weather for people who live in areas of the world where summer is about to begin and special occasions like Father’s Day and school graduations, June is a popular month.
        June is the sixth month of the year according to the Gregorian calendar, which much of the world relies on, but it wasn’t always that way. According to the early Roman calendar, June was the fourth month and only had 29 days. The number of days was increased to 30 when Caesar reformed the calendar.
