     Outdoor Truths  

    I can remember the days when nothing else mattered except getting an opportunity to arrow a deer. I never thought about how far I would have to drag a deer or what terrain I might have to overcome, or how long it may take me to get all of the “post hunt” activities done. Before, it never mattered. Now it does.

  • James 2:1-13

    How do you act when someone of poverty comes into the church? What are your first thoughts? Is it, “They’re only here because they want something?” Is it, “All they want is a hand out and then you will never see them again?” I know that there are people out there looking for sympathy hoping they may be able to use the church as a welfare system. But I am not speaking about those people. I am speaking about those who are genuinely in need of help.

  • The Rev. James Snyder


    Whenever anybody says things can’t get any worse, they usually do. No matter how bad something is, there is always a good chance it will get worse. Experience may not be my best teacher, but sometimes it’s the only teacher on duty.

    Judgment House

    The last two deer seasons are illustrations in extremes. 

    There was only one other year that I can remember an acorn drought as bad as last year’s was. And this year’s abundance of acorns is equally as uncommon. The deer are not having to move very much or very far in order to get to ample food. As a result, seeing fields full of bucks and does has been and will be, rare. Last year, sightings were almost a daily occurrence. 

  • The Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, has recently awarded a local non-profit organization, Unity Family Community Center, Inc., grant funds in the amount of $200,000 to provide mentoring services to children ages 4-18 in Levy and Marion counties. 

    The program will serve youth whose parents are incarcerated in local, state or federal correctional institutions.
