    In retrospect, 2017 was a busy year for the Kemper County Sheriff’s Department as the officers went about their duties of serving and protecting the citizens of Kemper County. Sheriff James Moore, now in his third term, and his staff of 16 deputies answered hundreds of calls including assaults, disturbances, burglaries, traffic accidents and drug related incidents. In all, there were just over 4,000 incidents.

BREAKING NEWS

    Turn in your Bible to Genesis 2:1-3. Last time we focused on what we called creation ordinances and blessings, and we focused, in particular, on the first two of them: procreation and labor. The ordinance of the Sabbath is set forth in Genesis 2:3,
  • DUNCAN/Seven Miles with Jesus

    Turn in your Bible to Luke 24:13-27. If you’ll remember verses 1-12, when the angels encountered the women who had come to the tomb to complete the preparation of Jesus’ body, the angels said to them, “Remember what He said,” and we talked about how Luke was emphasizing the centrality of the words of Christ for His disciples. It's central to their faith. Well, in the passage we're going to study this time, Jesus elaborates on that very point.
  • DUNCAN/Perplexed. Frightened. Incredulous. Marveling!
    Wednesday, October 18, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 24:1-12. This passage is about the battle of faith. Are we going to trust God's Word, or are we going to succumb to unbelief? Jesus Himself does not appear to anyone in the story that Luke has recorded here. This is significant because Luke is pointing our attention to something else that is faith producing, and that is the Word of God, the words of Christ.

    Turn in your Bible to Luke 23:39-43. Last week we looked at two major themes of this passage. We saw in His conversation with the criminal that Jesus is continuing to save, to draw people to Himself, even while He is on the cross. Then we looked at the criminal’s incredible conversion. This week I want you to see a third thing from this passage. You not only see Jesus working
  • DUNCAN/Remember Me: Part 1
    Wednesday, September 20, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 23:39-43. In the last passage that we read in Luke, Jesus prayed, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” In this passage, Jesus forgives a criminal and assures him of everlasting life. Even on the cross, Jesus is ministering His saving work. Even as He dies for the sins of the world, He is concerned about the heart of a convicted criminal who is dying the same awful death that He is dying. And in this wonderful exchange, this unique exchange recorded for us only by Luke, I want us to see three things. We will look at two of them this week, and we’ll look at the last one next week.
