Need a ride to church? While most churches have a van to pick up their members, Ephesus Missionary Baptist Church in Sheridan has something unique, a church wagon! Church member Wayne Davis drives his wagon and mule or horse team nearly every Sunday, 17 miles round trip, and he will give anyone who wants to go to church a ride with him in the church wagon. Pictured with the wagon are (left to right) R.G. Plunkett (85), Larry Martin, Bonna Edwards (91), (kneeling) J.L. Davis, Wayne Davis, Jerry Herring and (standing) Brett Riggan and Bill Rainbolt.
Keeping the Faith Women’s Shelter was excited to learn a local church was interested in volunteering their time to help spruce up the shelter’s yard. Life Point Community Church contacted Jo Ann Click, Shelter Director, about the possibility of volunteering at the shelter and helping to clean up, fix things and spruce up the shelter for Spring.
The shelter is a non-profit organization that is one of four entities under Grant the County Unified Community Resource Council, Inc.
Volunteers from Life Point spent a Saturday cleaning up the grounds. They painted patio furniture, cleaned up the backyard and fixed broken swing sets. To add a touch of Spring, a pot of pansies was donated brightening up the patio table.
