Building. We are now holding services every Sunday in the Community room at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library.<br /> Connect time is 9-9:45 a.m. for some recreation and Bible Study for our youth with the youth Pastor. Adults will also meet for fellowship in the community room at these times. Service will begin at 10 a.m. with live worship. Come as you are and worship with us.<br /> If we could do things over again... http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/if-we-could-do-things-over-again <p> By Don Powell, Gideons<br /> <br /> How many times have you pondered over the question, &ldquo;What would I do If I could do things over again?&rdquo;&nbsp; Have you ever heard someone say, &ldquo;If I could only have a second chance at life, I would do things differently?&rdquo; Maybe you have said or thought these words yourself.<br /> I suppose everyone of us have had those moments of hind sight and/or regret. We wish we had said or done things differently. But, we always find out too late that time moves on and we can&rsquo;t go back and change things or do things over.<br /> Grace Notes http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/grace-notes-50 <p> This time of year my email inbox gets flooded with holiday tips.<br /> Unless they involve tips to get free cookies or pie I generally delete them without even opening them.<br /> However, I got one the other day from strategy consultant Lisa McLeod that caught my attention. She writes a weekly column, usually about success in business, but sometimes she writes about more general topics, like her most recent one: &ldquo;Tips for a Horrible Holiday.&rdquo;<br /> community calendar http://www.cynthianademocrat.com/content/community-calendar-371 <p> THURSDAY, Dec. 7<br /> Teen Book Club.
