  • Work and Ministry at Buffalo Lick Church

    I started attending Buffalo Lick Church in 1980. Our attendance has been at all different levels during these years. The lowest we have ever been is at the present time.

    Usual kind of decrease due to death, sickness, moving away is understandable.

    But, I have always wondered why all neighboring homes in the near vicinity haven’t even visited?

    Also, why families close by who have been past members went to other churches and left for some reason that they could have worked to have at Buffalo Lick? In my opinion some were so lame.

    What do we want our county and our community to look like for 2015, where are our priorities?

    We want to be ambitious but realistic. We want to address issues that have captivated the public and we want answers.

    Yes, 2014 was a big, big year and we believe it has primed us for even more in 2015.

    With that said, we offer these goals for the year:

  • A look back at 2014

    Every January since 2009 The Sentinel-News has established a blueprint for the coming year to help focus on ideas, concepts and circumstances that deserve – or require – our attention.

    Every December since 2010, we have issued a report card to review how well the community has responded to those goals. Sometimes new issues rush in and steal our momentum – such as two new distilleries planning facilities in our county – but generally we have at the end of the year developed a grade for how we have fared as a community.
