Sunday evening, members of the community gathered to help clean the playground and the new concrete slab. Around forty youth and adults were present to fill in gravel and pick up trash to prepare the playground for a new school year. This activity was a part of a 4-H community service project that was extended to the rest of the community.

Beth Moore Radio
An interdenominational Living Proof Ministry simulcast featuring evangelist and author Beth Moore will be hosted by First United Methodist Church of Hereford, 501 Main, Saturday, September 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tickets, priced at $10 are available at the FUMC office at 5th and Main, or by calling 806-364-0770.
The simulcast will be in the sanctuary of First United Methodist Church. A provided lunch, served by United Methodist Men of Hereford, will be served in the church’s Fellowship Hall, adjacent to the sanctuary. No nursery will be available for this event.
Beth Moore is the founder of Living Proof Ministries, based in Houston, a Bible-based organization for women that focuses its ministry on aiding women desiring to model their lives on evangelical Christian principles.
“We invite women of the community and the surrounding area to come and experience an inspirational Bible study, teaching, and worship service to enrich mind, soul, and spirit,” said Becky Williams, co-chair of the event. “Through the simulcast, Beth will be exploring the Bible and how it applies to real life. Participants will be encouraged by Beth’s experiences as a believer, and will be inspired to magnify and strengthen their own relationship with God.”
The 2017-18 Youth Kickoff will be Sunday, August 27, at 3:00 at the CCD building. There will not be a mass, and freshman through seniors are encouraged to come!
Start of Football Season
The Swifts’ first football game will be against Guthrie at Jayton on Friday, September 1. Come out and support the Swifts as they start the 2017-18 season.
Viewing the Eclipse
On Monday afternoon, members of the community joined 4-H participants to view the partial solar eclipse from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Those in attendance used special glasses to watch the sun, created sun-inspired crafts and enjoyed snacks.
The youth made bracelets with beads that change color in sunlight and painted paper plates to look like the sun. They used plates decorated as the sun, moon and earth to demonstrate what was happening during the eclipse. Using two pieces of parchment paper and crayons, they created sun catchers. They made s’mores by wrapping the ingredients in tinfoil and using a hairdryer to heat it and melt the chocolate and marshmallow.
