Ronceverte Baptist Church
invites children of all ages to a summer event called “Alpine Ascent – Find Strength in God’s Word” The lessons are: students will always be ready to serve the Lord, will follow Christ who lives in them, will live faithfully for Christ despite difficulties, will share Christ with their unsaved family and friends, and will stand with Christ against evil and danger. Each day the kids will enjoy delicious snacks, play games, learn upbeat songs and work on different crafts. VBS will be Monday, July 12 through Friday, July 16 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Classes for nursery age children through those who have completed 6th grade. We also have an adult class.

Alvon Living Word Church
and Pastor Robert McClintic will present The Hoppers at July 17 6 p.m. Multi-award winning family group, The Hoppers, have been singing to global audiences for over 60 years with appearances ranging from presidential religious inaugural ceremonies and New York’s Carnegie Hall to singing conventions and church platforms. They have performed throughout the United States as well as in Israel, Europe and Africa. Their unique blend of harmonies and song choices have created a legacy of musical excellence embraced by leading pastors and event organizers. Known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music, they are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings frequently land at the top of the BILLBOARD sales charts and The Singing News radio charts. Comprised today of family members Claude and Connie, son Dean and his wife, Kim, and son Mike Hopper, The Hoppers were formed in 1957 in the rural-farm town of Madison, NC, and have grown continuously for decades, touching countless lives around the world. A cancer survivor, Connie has been honored with the prestigious Marvin Norcross Award, in addition to numerous industry and fan honors; and she has been inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Sons Dean and Mike have continued the family legacy with their musical talents and business abilities; and Kim, Dean’s wife, hails from her own nationally acclaimed musical family, The Greenes. She is noted for the excitement she brings to any live performance, and her unmistakable, rafter-ringing soprano vocals have taken The Hoppers to new heights for many years.

Annual Ketron Church and
Community Homecoming 1902-2011
The annual Ketron Church Homecoming is resuming this year! Please join us Sunday, Aug. 1 at 11 a.m. to celebrate the legacy of the Ketron Church, worship, and reunite with old friends. Masks will be available. The speaker this year will be Mayford Witt of Charleston. Following the worship service we will gather at the Frank Whanger Picnic Shelter for a Carry-in lunch and a brief business meeting. Everyone is invited to attend. Paper products and utensils will be provided. Please notify Karen West of any persons you would like added to the memorial list. Because the Homecoming was cancelled last year, very few donations were received. Your donations for the upkeep of the church located on Rockland Road, Ronceverte, and the cemetery are more important now than ever before. If you have loved ones buried in the Ketron cemetery and cannot attend, please consider mailing a generous donation to Ketron Church in care of the Ketron Treasurer, Karen West, P.O. Box 251, Ronceverte, WV 24970.
