COMING HOME: Friends to gather at old country church

first_img BAND CAMP: Sound of the South rehearses for upcoming season Members of the Troy University Sound of the South hit the intramural field on campus Friday evening to rehearse sets… read more Book Nook to reopen By The Penny Hoarder Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Latest Stories Sponsored Content COMING HOME: Friends to gather at old country church Print Article There’s always plenty of time for fellowship and a visit to the cemetery to remember and honor those whose lives were connected in some way to the church and the community, Boutwell said.The church and the community are steeped in local history.“China Grove was one of the first settled areas in Pike County,” Boutwell said. “Based on that, it is believed that Concord Primitive Baptist Church was established by the mid-1800s. The first church building would, in all likelihood, have been constructed of logs that were probably from trees cut on the property.”Unfortunately, no known records of the church have survived. If Thomas Wolf’s belief was right, then you really “can’t go home again.”But, if mistaken, even slightly, then going home again just might be possible.On Sunday, August 16 in the hinterlands of northeast Pike County, a group of believers will gather at historic Concord Primitive Baptist Church in China Grove to “go home again.” Published 3:00 am Monday, August 13, 2018 Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

So it was not until around 1900 that the church was sealed.”The construction of “the house” is unique in that it is one room with a ceiling that could be described as “primitively” vaulted. Whether that was done to improve the acoustics, for its aesthetic value or for some unknown reason, will perhaps never be known.“The church benches are rather unique,” Boutwell said. “They are made of wood slats and most of them are about 16 feet long. This was a Primitive Baptist Church, so the men sat on one side of the church and women sat on the other. There are shorter benches that were probably built for particular spaces or uses. The church held a lot of people and they sang without accompaniment. I imagine the walls of the church vibrated when they sang.”The congregation would have sung the hymns of Charles Wesley, Isaac Watts and other composers of hymns. Songs would have included “Arise My Soul Arise” and “Come Ye That Love the Lord.”Boutwell said the sermons surely were of the “fire and brimstone” kind.“I would have loved to have attended one of those early church services in that wonderful ol’ church,” she said. “But no services have been conducted in that church for at least 75 years.”Because of the close connection between the church and cemetery and the community, the cemetery became known as the Concord/China Grove Cemetery.The cemetery was in existence even before the church. Boutwell said people had to have a place to bury their loved ones so cemeteries were necessary. One grave in the cemetery was dated 1851.African American men and women, Confederate soldiers and World War II veterans are buried in the Concord/China Grove Cemetery. Baby boys and baby girls are buried there along with those whose lives were long. There are graves in the cemetery that are marked only by stones or hand-made bricks – “known only to God.”“What is so sad is that there are many unmarked graves,” Boutwell said. “No one knows how many unmarked graves there are or where they are. There are ways to locate unmarked graves. One day we might be able to locate the graves, but we’ll never know who is buried there.”On the third Sunday in August, those connected with the church, the cemetery and the community will come together and fellowship with dinner on the grounds. The “house” and the cemetery are taken care of by this group.“It’s a labor of love,” Boutwell said. “It’s important to us and those who come after us, that we maintain and protect what our ancestors left in our care. It’s important that others take up the torch and carry it forward.” Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Skip The third Sunday in August is the traditional date for homecoming at Concord Primitive Baptist Church. And those who come have strong ties to the church and to the community – “the ties that bind.”“All of us with ties to the church, to the China Grove Cemetery and to the community look forward to homecoming each year,” said Marsha Boutwell. “There’s just something special, something so meaningful, about gathering on the church grounds, under the old oak trees and sharing memories and stories with friends.”As with all homecomings, there’s dinner on the grounds and there’s also a short business meeting related to the upkeep of the cemetery.

Turn the taps off! Most common damage to properties by tenants revealed

Most common damage to properties by tenants revealedLeaving baths running, red wine spillage and cracked shower trays top list of most common damage inflicted on buy-to-let properties.Nigel Lewis13th April 201801,381 Views The most common way tenants damage properties and the average cost of clearing up and repairing the mess have been revealed.This includes leaving a bath running and flooding the property, dropping a shower head and cracking the tray, red wine spills on carpets, and windows being smashed by children playing football outside.Insurer Total Landlord Insurance says the average bill for damage to rental properties is £759, although one claim it processed recently totalled £19,000.The case involved tenants who flooded their home while out at work all day, returning to find the brand new kitchen wrecked, the whole house water logged, bulged ceilings and walls throughout, ruined light fittings and destroyed smoke alarms.The huge bill included paying for the tenants to live elsewhere while the property was repaired.Eddie Hooker (pictured, left), CEO of Total Landlord Insurance, says the cases highlight how seriously landlords should take securing proper cover for their rental properties.“Landlords should be mindful they need to be as accurate as possible to ensure they have sufficient cover, and if you have a new kitchen fitted, for example, keep hold of the invoices so you can prove its value in the event something gets damaged,” he says.Such stories of woe appear not to have put off investors entering the buy-to-let market. This week data from HM Revenue & Customs revealed that the number of landlords has hit a record high of 2.5 million, up 27% compared to five years ago.Read more about buy-to-let insurance landlord insurance property damage tenants insurance cover Total Landlord Insurnce Eddie Hooker April 13, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
