The Press-Dispatch Wednesday, December 2, 2020 B-5 Church of Christ Catholic Independent Church of God Baptist PAWS WEEK PAWS WEEK Pet of the GINGER Without my cat, my house would probably be cleaner and I'd probably have more money, but my heart would be empty. This week, PAWS is fea- turing a loving young fe- line named Ginger, who is a quiet cat and one rarely knows she is even around unless a volunteer shakes a Temptations bag and she does love these kitty treats. Ginger is a dain- ty little cat that has plush golden fur, large amber eyes, is approximately eight months old, spayed and has all her shots. She can be adopted by calling 812-354-9894.

I truly hope that everyone was able to have a happy and safe Thanksgiving, which looked a little different this year for many people, but we still have plenty of reason to be thankful. At Crossroads, we were not able to have the Community Thanksgiving dinner due to the increase in COVID-19 cases. COVID has made 2020 a very diffi- cult year. We truly hope and pray for Thanksgiving 2021 to have a return to the Communi- ty Thanksgiving dinner. We at Crossroads feel com- pelled to help, so we are keeping our annual Decem- ber Christmas Toy Giveaway, which will be this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon (CST) at the church. All necessary COVID precautions will be enforced: masks will be man- datory, social distancing re- quired, and other actions tak- en to ensure a safe and healthy environment. We ask that you be patient. As usual, proof of children in your household will be required. Our Wednesday study called "Twelve Extraordinary Women" will not happen this week due to the setup for the toy giveaway. We will return to the weekly study Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 6 p.m., with a meal at 5:30 p.m. (all times CST). We also have activities and study groups for the children called "Kids' Worship for Life Club." Sunday, we will continue our march to the celebration of the birth of our King Je- sus, the most celebrated, rec- ognized and important birth in history. We are taking the opportunity to review our King's most unique qualities and characteristics. We would love for you to join us as we worship our Lord and prepare our hearts for the cel- ebration of His birth. Have a great week, hope to see you soon.

CHURCH Corner of Center and Sycamore No Sunday school; Sunday worship at 10 :30 a.m. This Wednesday will be our monthly business meeting at 6:30 p.m. Remember those on our prayer list, the shut-ins and our lost loved ones. The Parable of the Good Sa- maritan reminds us that our neighbor is not just the per- son next door, but everyone we meet, especially those who are not "like" us in some way. When their world and ours col- lide, God can use our neigh- borliness to show His love and mercy to those we might think would never be interested in hearing about Him. "Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers? " The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy on him." Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise" (Luke 10 :36 -37). Dwight Howe, Pastor Karri Brock, Reporter STS PETER & PAUL CATHOLIC CHURCH 711 Walnut Street Petersburg 812-354-6942 Email: Facebook: Sts.

Mark Wade,Deacon FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH 1400 E. Main Street Petersburg 812-354-6775 Who do you follow? What do you commit your life to? Is it Je- sus? This is an important and necessary question. For many of us the gut reaction is to say, of course I follow Jesus. This is the question Mark intends for you answer when reading his gospel account. More im- portantly, this is the question we all must answer in our life- time. Who will we follow and who will we entrust our lives to? "Who do you say that I am," Jesus asks? This might be a question you answered in Sun- day school, or after a sermon one Sunday. You might have been convicted and answered that question one evening af- ter a revival. But I believe, our truest answer to that ques- tion is found in our daily hab- its and expressed in our walk with Christ. Are there aspects of your life that have become more noticeable during this season that are not proclaim- ing Jesus? There is no better time to ask these questions in our hearts and commit to fol- lowing Jesus and his vision for our lives and our churches. DJ Bryant, Pastor VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E.

The "fool" has said in his heart "there is no God." They have all turned aside, they have together become cor- rupt. There is none who does good. No not even one (Psalms 14: 1,3). These verses in Psalms should remind us of Sod- om and Gomorrah and how God judged the people there. Seems like America is follow- ing in their footsteps. The more America is going to live in disbelief, and turn away from God, more likely are we to fall as a nation. Ronald Rea- gan once said, "A nation not under God is a nation gone under."
