RIPLEY — Ripley United Methodist Church invites all veterans and their families to attend a service at 9 a.m. Sunday, May 27. The service will be dedicated to all of the veterans who have served our country.

David Mosley, Lay Leader, will lead the service to honor the veterans, which will include patriotic songs. Refreshments will be served after the service in the Fellowship Hall.

PORTLAND — The Jehovah’s Witnesses three-day conference continues today and Sunday at Cumberland County Center. The conference started Friday.

The theme is “Safeguard Your Heart.” People may often hear the expression “Follow your heart” but rarely hear “Safeguard your heart.” The latter phrase will be heard many times this weekend during the 2012 “Safeguard Your Heart!” District Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses, according to a news release.

The convention will highlight Biblical references to the heart. Program parts will also encourage self-scrutiny and reflection, amounting to a three-day examination of one’s own figurative heart. Attendees will see how protecting the figurative heart can help them to make wise decisions, improve family life, strengthen their personal relationship with God, and find true happiness. Jehovah’s Witnesses invite everyone to attend and learn more about these topics.

Program sessions begin at 9:20 a.m. Admission is free. Conventions of Jehovah’s Witnesses are supported entirely by voluntary donations.
