Redeemer Reformed Episcopal Church of Pineville, located on Highway 45, provides a refreshing setting for senior residents of the upper Berkeley County every Thursday, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

Seniors gather in the church’s fellowship hall to receive information from various organizations that provide services to persons of that age group in all categories of concern including health, insurance, nutrition, care facilities, home services, Social Security, and more.

The Redeemer Church service program has been in place since 2011, and is under the direction of Rose Ravenell.

As a special benefit to the gathering, a delicious meal is served as they commune together and enjoy two hours of great hospitality and meaningful information.

Mortgage Burning Ceremony

Jerusalem Baptist Church, Highway 17A North in Jamestown, under the Pastoral leadership of the Rev. Robert McCutchen Jr., conducted a Mortgage Burning Ceremony on July 20.

This momentous feat was celebrated with a program that featured many notable individuals, but the emphasis was on the members of the church, along with its officers and pastor, that made the ceremony possible.

Presiding at the program was the Rev. John W. Wilson, Pastor, Bethleham Baptist Church. The Rev. Harvey Mack Jr. was the featured speaker.

Inspirational songs of praise were performed throughout the program with special deliveries in preparation of the message, and following its delivery.

The “Mortgage Burning Ceremony” was led by Pastor McCutchen, with the benediction being provided by the Rev. Harvey Mack.

We congratulate the Jerusalem Baptist Church Family on this most historic and worth celebratory occasion, as they proclaimed: “Paid in Full! Glory be to God!”
