    With holidays here and winter around the corner, fires in the fireplace or outside in the fire pit are intrinsically connected to our visions of nestling in for a long comfy winter. But not all firewood is created equal, and there are some important things to know before lighting just any old wood.

  • Dear Santa,

    Dear Santa,

  • It is time to start decorating for the holidays, which for many includes the poinsettia.  The poinsettia has been a fixture in American homes as a holiday decoration for as long as most of us can remember. I think it is fair to say that it is considered the ‘official’ Christmas flower.

  • CITY ON A HILL
    Just a reminder that City on a Hill Church is no longer meeting at the old Berry Lumber Co. Building. We are now holding services every Sunday in the Community room at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library.
    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.

  • Here’s something to chew on with your morning coffee: What if being better -- sinning less, doing more good than bad -- isn’t God’s primary goal in the lives of Christians?
    And, what if our struggle with sin (sin being another word for trying to do life by our own power and following our own individual bent and moral compass) -- what if that internal tug-o-war between wanting to please God and wanting to please ourselves isn’t a sign of spiritual failure but is really a sign of spiritual health?
