Cedaredge Community United Methodist Church is embarking upon a five-week season featuring lay preachers. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear many different and interesting perspectives on a variety of topics, all from one pulpit. Join the congregation Sundays in August for worship service at 10 a.m.
On Aug. 6, Charlie Farrell will speak on Romans 5:1-5, with a message entitled "Hope Floats." Charlie and his wife Jan recently inaugurated the Parkinson's boxing group Rock Steady Boxing.
Aug. 13 will feature Midge Hagen and Bev Gardner, who will speak about near-death experiences, entitled "I Came Back."
Aug. 20 will be an extra special day. Aaron Clay, a Delta attorney, will preach on "Not Storing Up Our Riches." After the service the church will celebrate with a potluck luncheon, while Aaron gives a short seminar focusing on wills, legacies and related planning, including the My Fives Wishes booklet. Don't miss this one!
On Aug. 27, Jude Conn will provide the message. She will speak about "Jesus the Healer," based on Matthew 16:13-20.
On Sept. 3, Karen Cline will close out the lay speaking adventure. She will be preaching from Exodus 3:1-15, asking with Moses on the mountain, "And Who Should I Say You Are?"
At about 9:50 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, officers of the Delta Police Department were dispatched to a robbery reported at Arby's, located at 107 Gunnison River Drive. An extensive search of the area was conducted and the suspect was not located.
The suspect was reported to have walked into Arby's and after a brief conversation with an employee, was able to leave the store with a small amount of cash and coins.
