The sights and sounds of the Christmas story will be on display Dec. 16-17 as Redeemer Lutheran Church brings back its Live Nativity from 6:30-9 p.m.
Springwell Church will once again be presenting two Christmas Eve services for the community to enjoy—one at 1 p.m. and one at 3 p.m.
“This year, our theme is ‘Why Christmas?’” said Dylan Arms, the worship director. “The service will be unpacking what is the whole point of Christmas. It’s the emphasis of John 3:16—God is love.”

Addiction/recovery expert Rich Jones arrived at FAVOR-Greenville in 2013, just in time to witness the greatest flood of drug overdose deaths our state and nation have ever seen.

Fourth grade teacher Tammy Rogers is finding ways to give back year-round.
Last year, Rogers came up with the idea for her students at Brushy Creek Elementary School to donate items for the Blessing Bags instead of giving her Christmas gifts.

Local residents and church members have been stockpiling items for the last few weeks to participate in Operation Christmas Child, a program organized by Samaritan’s Purse.
