New Proud Sponsor: RE/MAX Southern Charm

REMAX:Southern CharmMore than most of us, real estate agents understand the true worth of property.  Karen Randels, owner of and broker for RE/MAX Southern Charm, knows how much the stretch of land directly behind the school campus  – the future home of The Way – will mean to the community.

That’s one of the reasons she has made her business a Proud Sponsor of The Way. In fact, Karen has pledged that her business will support The Way on a monthly basis.  (That’s Karen on the right, receiving The Way sponsor poster from board member Martha Davis.)

“Our youth need this wholesome environment and guidance,” she said, referring to The Way. “I am excited about seeing this vision become a reality.”

RE/MAX Southern Charm opened in April 2015. Today, it has four sales associates experienced in fulfilling your real estate needs, from horse, historic and lake/beach properties to luxury homes and residential acreages.

The agency is located at 72 Lone Oak Drive. You can reach them at (270) 350.3665

Proud Sponsor: Bethel United Methodist Church

Kenny RogersKenny Rogers is a busy man.  Once he finishes his 9 a.m. sermon at Linton United Methodist Church, he and wife Betty drive to Bethel United Methodist Church for his 11:00 a.m. sermon.

Not only do both churches share a pastor, but they both consistently financially support this ministry. We are honored to have Bethel United Methodist Church as a Proud Sponsor of The Way.  (For information about Linton United Methodist Church, see story below).

“Our churches believe that The Way provides the youth of our community a safe environment to have some fun and food and at the same time experience the love and grace that God offers,” Brother Kenny explains. “This is the reason both our churches decided years ago to support The Way. We made this decision based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Word of God.”

It is generally accepted that Bethel is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, Methodist organizations in Trigg County.  Records show that it was established years before Trigg County was created in 1820.  According to western Kentucky history, an early Methodist class was organized on Bird’s Creek, where a log house of worship was built and used for many years.

Around 1888, a larger frame structure was erected a short distance from the old church and beside Bethel Cemetery. In 1968, the church was remodeled, adding a full basement for Sunday School rooms, new pews, lectern, pulpit chairs, communion table and carpeting for the sanctuary, and stained glass windows and brick veneer.

Proud Sponsor: Linton United Methodist Church

Kenny RogersKenny Rogers became pastor of Linton United Methodist Church in 2006.  It’s never been the same since.

Not only has the church grown steadily during his 10 years there, but it’s also steadily committed resources to The Way. So while it may not necessarily be a “new” sponsor, Linton United Methodist certainly is a Proud Sponsor of The Way.

“I believe The Way is a great opportunity for individuals and churches to minister to the youth of Trigg County and connect to their families,” Brother Kenny says.

Linton United Episcopal Church South was organized in 1867 by Rev. Thomas Randolf.  Meetings were held in a tobacco warehouse for two years until a house of worship was erected, which was used for a church and school. Construction on an actual church was completed in 1884.

The creation of Barkley Lake forced the one-room congregation to relocate.  A new church was built by Woodruff Lumber Company is what is now Linton. Its first service was held on August 19, 1963.

In May 1996, ground was broken to create a larger fellowship hall, kitchen, bathrooms and two more Sunday School rooms. It was completed and dedicated a year later.

Today, Linton United Methodist is literally outgrowing its confines. Construction has begun to widen the sanctuary, expand the kitchen area and make other improvements.

The church is located at 6464 Linton Road.  Sunday morning service starts at 9:00 a.m. It’s followed by fellowship time in the kitchen, and then Sunday School starts at 10:30 a.m.

H.B. has spent countless hours helping us get our new building up and running. Thanks to his help, we were able to purchase and exchange properties and obtain city zoning approval. Over the years he’s provided legal advice on other issues relating to The Way.

Proud New Sponsor: Emmanuel Bible Church

EMMANEUL BIBLE CHURCHFew pastors in the area have led the same church for 32 years. Brother Daniel Swartz, pastor of Emmanuel Bible Church in Cadiz, holds that rare distinction.

And his church now holds the distinction of being the latest Proud Sponsor of The Way.

Emmanuel Bible Church was started in 1982 by local families who felt the need for a Trigg County church that emphasized the systematic teaching of God’s Word.  In January 1983 the church was officially charged with the name Logos Christian Fellowship Church. Later that year, they called Daniel Swartz to be their full-time pastor.

In the 1990s, the church underwent two significant changes.  It changed its name to the present one in April 1996.  In August of that year, the church – which had been meeting in an American Legion building – hired an architect to design a new sanctuary.  The present sanctuary and foyer were completed in October 1998.

Emmanuel Bible Church is located at 2887 Hopkinsville Road in Cadiz.  Sunday School starts at 9:45 a.m., followed by worship services at 10:45 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Sunday.
