Honest Abe to preach at Clark County church

The Plattsburg United Church of Christ will welcome to the pulpit none other than Abraham Lincoln — also known as John Cooper — on Feb. 14 in honor of Presidents’ Day Weekend.

Cooper had been portraying and doing programs as Lincoln for a number of years, including the Lincoln attraction at the Ohio State Fair. The morning message will be a mix of some of “Honest Abe’s” history, as well as some of his personal beliefs as a man of faith.

Worship begins at 9:30 a.m. and there will be a time of fellowship following worship where people can talk with Cooper. Visit his website at www.fourscore7yearsago.com for a preview.

For additional information, email the church at platsburgucc@woh.rr.com, or call the church office at 937-568-4102. The church is at , 1715 S. Urbana Lisbon Road. STAFF REPORT
