Still time to sign up for “Bridges out of Poverty” class

February 20, 2013

There will be a very important community training seminar in Starkville one week from today.
Attendance from West Point’s community leaders could lead to a significant impact on poverty and the town’s economy.
“Bridges out of Poverty” is an organization that has taught communities that benefits and effectiveness of empowering those in poverty rather than just writing checks to different charities.
Lynn Phillips-Gaines spoke to the West Point Rotary Club last week about the “Bridges” program and the impact it has had on Starkville.

Davis speaks during Clergy Week

February 20, 2013

Jeanette Unger was in charge of the Wednesday’s program at the West Point Civitan Luncheon Club. February is Clergy Month for the Civitan Clubs. She presented Rev. Steve Davis, pastor of 1st Presbyterian Church FPC., and his wife Sharon.
“I had a completely different idea of what to talk about when I got here today but the Civitan Creed made me rethink what I wanted to say,” explained Davis. “Sometimes we just need to be willing to go in the direction we are led. You are one of the few groups who I feel truly are led by the idea of Christian love and service.”
