Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

New ministry offering services to the community

Send a link to a friend

RestaurantDear Editor:

Park Meadows Baptist Church is starting a new ministry to reach out to the community of Logan County. It is called the S.O.S club. We will be offering handyman services to the handicapped, elderly, widows and single women of our community free of charge. We would also extend these services to families who may need these services but cannot afford to hire someone.

Our services we will be offering include, but are not limited to: snow removal, de-icing sidewalks, raking leaves, mowing lawns, trimming bushes, small paint projects, small repairs, moving furniture, etc.

The men of our church will be donating their time to provide these services to those in need.

[to top of second column in this letter]


We will be starting services on Feb. 1. All someone needs to do is to call us to arrange a time for someone to come. The number to call is 217-735-1373. Ask for John or Tina to set up the best time for us to be of service. If there is no answer, please leave a message.

We are asking if you would do your part by helping us to spread the word.


Serving Other Souls,
John and Tina Cotton
Members at Park Meadows Baptist Church
