Drive-thru prayer at Cumberland Presbyterian

Every Thursday morning, since May of 2019, the Cumberland Presbyterian Church (210 S. Ave M) has been hosting Drive-through Prayer. This has been a unique opportunity for us to get to know many of you who have stopped by for prayer and a word of encouragement. This time has been precious for our church, and we hope it has been for the community as well.

Support for speed limit reduction pours in from community

Support continues to pour in concerning a potential speed limit reduction on Highway 251 in Olney. This issue has resurfaced over the past month, with several residents in the area wanting to see a change given the amount of potential accidents that could occur in this area. Some believe it is better to make a change before more life threatening accidents arise.
