Open Arms Community Church

BRADFORD - Open Arms Community Church in Bradford, PA is planning a celebration for the church's tenth anniversary on Sunday, October 7th. The event will feature special services at 9:15AM and 11:00AM as well as a potluck picnic following the second service.

Open Arms was launched 10 years ago by founding Pastor Andy Haskins and the congregation of the Allegany Free Methodist Church in the vacant Tuna Valley Free Methodist Church building. After a major facelift on the facilities, the fledgling church met on Saturday Nights, until current pastor, Mike McAvoy started Sunday morning services with his arrival one year later.

After ten years, the church has developed as an organization that attempts to engage culture with current topics, multimedia, and modern music.

This Sunday, September 30th, the church launches it's new fall series, TEOTWAWKI: The End of The World As We Know It, which will offer a current interpretation of end-times prophecies, as well as a "sensible" approach as to how they can be applied to modern life.

"We really want to extend a hearty welcome to our community for this anniversary!" says Media Coordinator Josh Hatcher. "We're so excited that we've been able to serve this region for ten years, and we would love it if we could celebrate together that weekend!"

Open Arms Community Church hosted a zombie themed video shoot in preparation for their new sermon series, "TEOTWAWKI: The End Of The World As We Know It". The series starts Sunday, September 30 at 9:15AM or 11:00AM, and will run through October

Tom Smith Charged in Federal Indictment with Carjacking and Use of a Firearm During Crime of Violence

The indictment charges Smith with taking a motor vehicle by force and violence and using a firearm during a crime of violence.

According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, the indictment alleges that on August 8, 2012 Smith pretended to be working on a car parked along a street in Emporium and flagged down an employee of Citizens & Northern Bank. He entered the vehicle and pulled out a handgun. The indictment alleges Smith then directed the victim to drive to the Citizens & Northern Bank branch in Emporiium. Smith allegedly told the victim this would be "the worst day of her life," that the victim and the bank had taken his house away from him in a bank foreclosure, and that the victim and another bank employee were now "going to pay for it," or words to that effect. According to the indictment, the victim jumped out of the vehicle to escape from Smith, who then fled from the vehicle.

On September 4, 2012, a federal complaint and arrest warrant issued charging Smith with taking a motor vehicle by force and violence and possession of a firearm during a crime of violence, and the federal warrant has been lodged as a detainer to keep Smith in custody pending his appearance in federal court. Smith is presently in custody on other, related state criminal violations filed in Cameron county following his arrest on September 3, 2012 in Emporium. The federal charges have been assigned to Judge Christopher C. Conner for trial.


If convicted of all the charges alleged in the indictment, Smith faces a mandatory prison term of seven years and a maximum sentence of life in prison and a $500,000 fine.



The case was investigated by the Emporium Borough Police Department, the Pennsylvania State Police, and Federal Bureau of Investigation in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Prosecution of this matter has been assigned to Assistant United States Attorney George J. Rocktashel.

"
The deliberate and deadly attacks, which were carried out yesterday against our country, were more than acts of terror. They were acts of war."

President George W. Bush Sept. 12, 2001

World Trade Center, the Pentagon, Flight 93,

The unprovoked attacks upon America by

foreign terrorists have thrust the United

States and other countries into a war it

never envisioned. Today 9 years later

we remember the victims of the terrorists.

We also honor U.S. military personnel

who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in

defense of freedom.

We must stand united as a nation and be

committed to wiping out terrorism and

those who plot the murders of innocent

civilians throughout the world.

We remain committed to supporting

the young men and women of our armed

forces who go in harms way on our

behalf.

The heroes of flight 93, the 23 New York

City Police Officials, 37 Port Authority

Police Officers, and 343 Firefighters who

gave their lives September 11 trying to

save others, make us proud to be

Americans.
