Baptist service focuses on outreach

Sunday was an interesting and different kind of day at First Baptist. We heard a great report on the recent prison ministry our team attended. Stories of children having a day with their dads who are in prison, a day of talking, playing games, and having a meal with them, hugging them, some for the first time. There were very few eyes that didn’t well up with tears as we listened. You couldn’t help but realize that this was a very special time that the children, as well as their fathers, would remember all their lives. As will the workers who made it possible. They were definitely an extension of the hands of Christ that day at prison. Full Story »

Step back in time at the Buggy Barn Museum

Step back in time at the Buggy Barn Museum

In the 18th and 19th centuries, the horse--drawn carriage was king. Carriages, designed for comfort and elegance, were reserved for the rich or businesses, such as funeral homes. A public passenger vehicle was called a stagecoach; working four-wheeled vehicles were wagons; and two-wheeled vehicles were carts. But the general terminology for all of these horse-drawn vehicles is “buggy.” Buggies started to disappear as steam engines began to generate interest. Steam power quickly won the battle against animal power and buggies have all but vanished from general use. There are, of course, exceptions, such as the Amish communities or ceremonial events.
