A new church has launched in the facilities that once housed Southside Baptist Church of Ore City.  After a Saturday cookout for the community, 31 residents showed up for the Sunday morning service.  One of those attending gave a $2,500 donation for the new work.  New Hope Baptist Church of Ore City, an independent Baptist church, is sponsoring the effort.

Restoration Fire, a ministry founded by Craig Toney of Pittsburg, is now meeting in the facilities that used to house Welcome Home Baptist Church of Winnsboro.

FBC Pittsburg pastor Steve Packer announced his plan to retire as pastor during morning services Sunday April 3.  He plans to retire when the church calls a new pastor or by April 2017 when he turns 70, whichever comes first.   The pastor search committee will be elected in the coming weeks.

IRS Lowers Standard Mileage Rates for 2016

The IRS announced December 17 that the standard business mileage rate will fall in 2016 to 54 cents per mile (down from 57.5 cents per mile in 2015), while mileage for medical or moving purposes will decrease to 19 cents per mile (down from 23 cents per mile in 2015). Lower fuel prices are a contributor to these declines in the mileage rates.  The standard charitable mileage rate remains set at the statutory rate of 14 cents per mile.
