Just a thought: Following Jesus’ growth pattern

While we don't know much of the details of Jesus's young life, we do have enough information to help us form a healthy personal growth pattern for ourselves. Luke's gospel account shows a natural progression. 2:40 Jesus is called "the child" v.43 "the boy" v.48 "Son" and v.52 "Jesus." Each of these titles shows a specific growth pattern. Luke says, "the child continued to grow…" Growth is natural, the desire to grow is a part of us. The lack of desire to grow, mature and learn shows there is a problem. If an ...

Providence Christian School celebrates Reformation Day

Oct. 31, 1517, was one of the turning points in world history, affecting not just church history, but the very course of civilization across the globe. On that day, Martin Luther, a German monk and university professor, nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenburg Church, in which he called for a return to the core teachings of Scripture (particularly as they pertain to salvation, grace, and the authority of Scripture). Providence Christian School recognizes this historical event with a celebration of Reformation Day, held each year on Oct. 31 (or the Friday closest to the 31st).

Harvest for the hungry

Halloween is just around the corner, and that means families will be looking for activities to attend and ways to spend the holiday. Churches often offer safe alternatives to trick or treating, where kids can get the candy they crave and expend energy playing games. This year, one local church is offering an event that is not just a Halloween-alternative fall festival but is also a way to help give back to the community.

This fall, Covington residents will have over 1,800 of them to choose from just off the Square, as Covington First United Methodist Church presents its fourth annual Great Pumpkin Patch.

There has been one little hiccup, however. The delivery, originally expected to arrive on Saturday, has been delayed. It is unclear at this time when ...
