  • Back to school, why not back to church?

    It is the best of times; it is the worst of times. It is back to school time in all of Nelson County! For the administrators, teachers and students it may not be the best of times, but for the parents it may be the best of times. Either way there is a touch of bittersweet when it comes to returning for the new school year and the fall semester.

  • God’s love sets us free to choose our own paths in this world



    How fast summer flies. Why is it that the three summer months turn into a blur, while winter drags on for weeks? This is another one of those questions for which there may be no answer. We all want answers — especially when the questions affect us personally:  “How will the economy affect me?” “What does the future look like?” We all want to know the score of the game before it’s over.
