'Not A Fan' series to start at Liberty
This Sunday, Liberty Christian Church in rural Brownstown will begin a new six-week sermon series titled "Not A Fan."

The series will include small-group Bible studies.

Wild Game Supper, movie set for Jan. 15
Brownstown First Christian Church will be hosting its annual Wild Game Supper on Sunday, Jan. 15, at 4:30 p.m.
The public is invited to attend, and to bring a wild game dish and the trimmings to share with others.
Following the meal, the movie "Courageous" will be shown at 6 p.m. The movie follows the lives of four law enforcement officers who find the challenges of their job easy compared to the demands of fatherhood.
"Protecting the streets is second nature," the promotional material said, "but raising their own children in a God-honoring way – that takes courage."
