Marriage Encounter Weekend

Time for two. There are times when married couples really need to just get away from the rest of the world, and just focus on each other.

As simple as that may sound, it can be difficult to achieve. The Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend opportunity is a structured and unobtrusive getaway. Sessions will be provided July 19 through 21, in Mount Pleasant, and Nov. 8-10, in Myrtle Beach. Early sign up is recommended.

Juvenile Arthritis Awareness

An estimated 300,000 U.S. children — that’s one in 250 kids — are documented to be affected by some form of Juvenile Arthritis. This disease takes a unique physical and emotional toll on children, often resulting in debilitating pain and feelings of loneliness or depression. The disease can make it especially challenging for children to say yes to playing, yes to hanging out with friends, yes to spending time with family, and yes to just being a child.

It’s important to have regular check ups for your children to rule out other possible conditions. The earlier the condition is diagnosed; the earlier treatment plans can be developed to assist them is living a healthy and productive life.

Sympathy

Expressions of sympathy are sent to the family of the late Ann Salisbury, Elizabeth Brown Milligan and Harry Robinson Jr.
