182nd year marked
New Concord Baptist Church at 3672 Concord Road, Kenton, will celebrate its 182nd year Sunday.
Services will begin at 10 a.m. with Sunday School, followed by the morning worship hour at 11. Guest speaker for the morning worship will be the Rev. Randy Poole.
There will be a noon potluck meal and an afternoon singing at 1:30 featuring the Women of Faith Trio from Dyersburg.
Everyone is invited, a spokesman said.
Sermon series starts
Grace Presbyterian Church (PCA), located on the square in Troy, will begin a series of sermons on the book of Romans on Sunday at 10:50 a.m.
A spokesman said noted theologians have long commented on the book of Romans. Martin Luther said, “This letter is truly the most important piece in the New Testament ... The more one deals with it, the more precious it becomes and the better it tastes.” John Calvin noted, “When anyone gains a knowledge of Paul’s letter to the Romans, he has an entrance opened to him to all the most hidden treasures of scripture.”
“This is the gospel. Jesus taught it, the apostles preached it ... Paul’s epistle to the Romans,” the spokesman said.
The community is invited to join the congregation as they explore, verse by verse and page by page, the clearest and most complete presentation ever written of God’s plan for a lost and dying world.
McKameys to sing
The McKameys will be in concert June 29 at 7 p.m. at East Side Baptist Church at 529 East Court St. in Paragould, Ark., to raise funds to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its fight against childhood cancer.
Tickets are $12 for adults and children older than age 12. They are available at Lantern Bookstore in Paragould or by calling (870) 565-5870. Tickets will also be available at the door. For more information, visit www.glorylandsoutherngospel.com or call (870) 565-5870.
Since opening in 1962, St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world. No child is ever denied treatment because of a family’s inability to pay. With a daily operating cost of $1.7 million, St. Jude depends mostly on public contributions and fundraising events such as the McKameys concert.
