  • Reader applauds camp end with church worship

    To the editor:

    On Sunday August 3rd, coach Jim Carr & staff brought the HCHS football team to Elmarch United Methodist Church for a time of worship & fellowship.followed by a good meal. This was the final day of his football camp. I commend him for doing this.
    Thank God he has the courage and heart to conclude his camp with a day of worship. What we plant today, we will reap tomorrow and these are good  seeds planted by a good man. Whether his team wins or loses, they have already won in the eyes of the Lord.
