First Baptist

celebrates 100 years

The First Baptist Church, 511 Young Blvd., Chiefland, Florida will be celebrating 100 years of service with Christ on Aug. 2 and 3. There will be an old-fashioned sing from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 2, with singing, games and an ice cream social. Guest artists will attend, singing to God's glory. There will be a bounce house and other games and activities for the children.

A cookbook entitled "100 Years of Recipes and Remembrances" with recipes from church members, past and present, will be available for sale at both events. These are recipes for some of those wonderful dishes from all those "dinner on the grounds." The price of the cookbook is $15 and the proceeds will go to help cover the expenses of the celebration.

On Sunday at 10 a.m., there will be a special time of worship, praise and recognition of 100 years, including guest speakers, Thomas Kennedy and Gerald Howell. After church there will be dinner with the church providing the meat and drinks.

Synagogue extends hand

to rural Jewish families

Temple Beth David, of Spring Hill, announces the “Yad” project.   

Yad means hand in Hebrew. The synagogue is reaching out to lend a hand to individuals and families that do not have access to a synagogue. The foundation of this program is to offer online opportunities through video conferencing.  Most churches or temples that use technology only use streaming, which allows members to view services or programs, much like watching television. The Beth David Yad project uses both streaming and video conferencing. But for people who just wish to view, they can. Coupling video conferencing allows people to not only view but to participate live in the service and/or program.

The project, which offers a number of online opportunities, began operations in August.   

For more information, contact the temple at 352-686-7034, view our web site at www.tbdfl.org or email rabbi@tbdfl.org.
