Thanks to everyone who helped contribute to the church service at New Monmouth Presbyterian Church for Sunday so that Casey and Rachel could attend their virtual continuing education conference. They would love to tell you about what they learned!

New Monmouth will be worshipping outdoors for the next five Sundays. This Sunday, Oct. 18, we will have our “sidewalk service” at 11 a.m. It will likely be cold, so bundle up and think of it as church tailgating!

Children’s pumpkin carving at the church is Saturday afternoon on Oct. 24. Bring a pumpkin and some carving tools.

The Kerrs Creek Ruritan Club met at the Rockbridge Baths Fire Department on Sept. 15. Thank you to the fire department for allowing us to use their outside area. It was good to see everyone.

Thanks to John and Sarah Burleson and others for helping to clean the cemetery at Kerrs Creek.
