    All invited to pray for addiction recovery efforts
    In the face of tremendous pain and suffering caused by drug use, the pastors of Henry County have come together, forming an initiative to consider a response filled with both grace and truth.
    Our desire is to affirm all life as sacred, that no one is too far gone, that no soul is beyond saving. We know this because we are not perfect ourselves. Ministers stand in the need of the same grace.

    Our community is blessed. We have two successful public school systems with incredibly engaged students in grades K through 12, and a team of professional teachers and administrators who strive daily to provide an excellent education to benefit this community for generations to come.

  • Republican majority rushes to pass bills

    I fought hard during this first week of the 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly to protect the interests of Kentucky’s working families against a rising tide of wealthy corporate interests, but in the end, our best efforts were blocked by the new ruling majority in the Kentucky House of Representatives. 

  • Multiple acts of violence shock the county

    I have never been in a physical fight, never struck another human being in anger.

    Whether you’re hoping to shed a few pounds, step up your level of exercise or kick that smoking habit once and for all — you can take steps to improve your chances of success. Here are just a few ideas.

  • The birth of Christ

    The Birth of Christ

    For many years, First Presbyterian Church in Eminence has hosted a Candlelight Communion Service on Christmas Eve.  

    It’s a simple service — carols alternating with scripture readings and some special music — held in our beautifully decorated little church. Following the carols and readings, Communion is celebrated.  

  • New year, new session

    It is hard to believe 2017 is nearly upon us. After the whirlwind of Thanksgiving, Christmas is nearly here. Lights are on the trees and candles are in the windows and children are writing their lists to Santa. It is the season of giving and a perfect time for communities to come together to help those in need.
