A summer family event called “Athens: Paul’s Dangerous Journey to Share the Truth” will be hosted at Grace Community Church in Altavista. Families step back in time at Athens, exploring some of the adventures the Apostle Paul faced. Kids ages 4-12 participate in a memorable Bible-times Marketplace, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Paul, and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s Word. Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes at Celebration—a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.

  • Poll: Most Americans Not Anxious to Get Involved in Foreign Entanglements

    The survey of 834 adults, which was taken before Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was downed over eastern Ukraine, found that just 17 percent feel the U.S. should do...

  • Blake Shelton Steps Into Stadium Headliner Status with Weekend Wrigley Field Show

    Image Courtesy Warner Music NashvilleBlake Shelton took over Chicago's Wrigley Field over the weekend to play for 40,000 fans on his Ten Times Crazier 2014 tour. Headlining a stadium show is a big leap for Blake, who got pretty comfortable opening for other big acts at those big shows in the past.

    Looking back on that previous stadium experience as an opener, Blake says, "I remember thinking, 'Gosh, I would not want to be Brad Paisley tonight or Rascal Flatts or George Strait' -- whoever I was opening for at the time...
