Rev. David Beam, Senior Pastor at First United Methodist Church (FUMC) (R) spoke at the Franklin Kiwanis meeting recently about feeding Macon County's hungry. Beam reported that the biggest need in Macon County was hunger. CareNet was started by churches 26 years ago.

Today, many Macon County churches continue to work with CareNet to provide food for the hungry. Feeding the hungry is a priority ministry at First United Methodist Church.

Planting a garden this year, the church was able to provide more than 1,000 lbs. of fresh vegetables to CareNet.


Good Shepherd Lutheran Church president Deanna Cooper (left) and vice president Steve Meyers (right) welcomed new pastor Chris Gibson and his wife, Cindy, on Sunday, Jan. 12.

Services are conducted at 235 Sloan Road beginning at 10:30 a.m. All are welcome.




On Nov. 15, Worthy Matron Sonja Eldridge (R) presented a check to CareNet director Shaina Adkins in the amount of $533.15.

Each year, the Nequassa Chapter No. 43 has a yard sale, which is our Worthy Matron’s project, and it is her decision as to where the proceeds will go.

A total of $733.15 was raised this year at the sale. The remaining $200 was sent to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Exactly one year after the Macon County pool opened debuting a new pool and bath facility, the Highlands pool project is scheduled to open offering similar renovations. Set to open in time for Memorial Day, the Highlands pool is getting a complete overhaul to make it safer and more fun for visitors.

“The old swimming pool had outlived its serviceability by having serious leaks and maintenance issues,” said newly elected Mayor of Highlands, Patrick Taylor. “The new pool will be a Junior Olympic pool with upgraded dressing rooms that meet ADA [Americans with Disabilities Act] requirements. The facility will be enjoyed by folks of all ages. It will also enable the recreation department to host swimming competitions and classes for our youth.”
