  • Mormon church creates IL ward

    Aug. 12 was an exciting day for local members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as the church created its very first ward in Indian Land.
    A “ward” in the Mormon church is similar to a congregation in other religious organizations and represents a specific geographic area. A ward usually consists of about 500 members.

  • Catholic church joins Fixing it for Christ

    by Barbara Lengers/Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church
    Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church recently became the first Catholic church to join a coalition of churches and organizations in the community project Fixing it for Christ.
    Fixing it for Christ began in 2007 and was inspired by a 2006 trip to Mississippi to help residents rebuild homes after Hurricane Katrina. After their week in Mississippi, members of Waxhaw United Methodist Church wanted to continue to offer help, but many could not travel. So they started a local project, Fixing it for Christ.
