    Legislative Update

    Dear Constituent: Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your State Representative in Columbia. With the first session of the 123rd General Assembly ending earlier this month, I am including an update on the accomplishments in the South Carolina House of Representatives over the past few months.

In addition, the House passed a balanced, …

    The end of the tee-ball season is just the beginning

    While sitting on the metal bleachers last week watching my grandson play his last tee-ball game of the season I thought about my kids playing at the Central Park tee-ball field many years ago. The similarities included watching the kids try their best to concentrate on the game while ignoring the grass or dirt that called for them to sit down. I smiled as they all rushed at a hit ball trying to be the first to pick it up and throw to first base. Running bases was also something all parents cherish, watching as their little Yankee or Red …

    Church establishes ‘The Underground’

    By Pastor Hunter Johnson About one year ago, the Youth Council met to talk about a donation that had been made to our ministry and how we would like to use it. We began throwing around ideas of how we could accomplish “kingdom work” with the money that had been given to us. As we prayed and sought guidance an amazing idea came into focus. This idea was to take an existing space in our church that had formally been deemed “unusable” and turn it into something that could reach the students of our town. This idea began to pick …
