Vacation Bible School
At First Methodist

Clanton First United Methodist Church will hold Vacation Bible School July 11 through July 15, from 5:30-8:15 p.m. each evening, in the Helen E. Parrish Activity Center located at 207 Ninth Street North.

This year’s theme is “Cave Quest: Following Jesus – The Light Of The World.” Each day, children participate in small groups called “Cave Crews” and discover practical ways to follow Jesus.

Not only will they experience Bible adventures, but they’ll also watch for God in everyday life through something called God Sightings™.

Cave Quest is filled with Bible-learning experiences kids will see, hear, touch and even taste! KidVid Cinema shares real stories of real kids who are shining God’s light in everyday life, and team-building games, Bible songs and tasty treats keep everyone on the move.

There is no charge for Vacation Bible School. Parents may register children at http://www.clantonfumc.org or by calling the church at 755-0490 or emailing children@clantonfumc.org. Registration deadline is Sunday, July 10.

THE DEMOCRATS AND THEIR RADICAL LEADERS CONTINUE TO PROVE THEMSELVES UNWORTHY!

You Need To Learn The Public Radical Liberals
In American Society: Television, Internet, Etc.!


If the most recent presidential election was totally on the upand-
up (and we have serious doubts about it), Donald Trump should
be a shoo-in for the next man up, for that job.

As we say, if the election was on the up-and-up, then the American people deliberately ELECTED a milque-toast excusemaker who has done anything but prove his feelings for, and his loyalty to, the traditional United States of America.

If that is the truth, then the American People are noted
for doing whatever it is that they want to do: Elect whom they
please! But then we get to the question of "who is 'they'?" From a
Constitutional standpoint, we are all "one" in America. That is getting
to be more and more of a problem because there are too many
outside the U.S.A. who would crowd us out and do away with us
if they could. When our "traditional society" is put to question, we
need to defend those who have gone before us -- with everything
that we have, because they earned and deserve our loyalty.

The best way to "reverse the field" this time around is to lay it
on Donald Trump, because he is exactly the opposite of what we now
have in the White House -- on the way out. Trump wants to try.
