    Apologies for the short notice, but we will not be meeting October 1st. With the lingering effects of the hurricane and flooding, it does not seem prudent to try to hold a meeting. We will be scheduling a special meeting in the coming weeks focused on how we can help with flood recovery.

    Please think about Ways that our group can pitch in to help those in need.  Richard Laurent

  • Homeless Period Packing Party 6pm

    Join us for our monthly packing party. Donations welcome throughout the month.

    You may think of your period as an annoyance but can you imagine not having pads/tampons every month? Did you know that feminine hygiene products are the least donated products to homeless shelters? Did you know that many girls in our schools do not have access to these necessities? For many the implications of living without these necessary supplies are serious… it’s the difference between attending school or work, between peace of mind and humiliation or between infection and health.

    We like Food! You like Food! Now that’s a reason to fellowship!

    Okay folks… Bring your dribbles and your nibbles and join us for a First Sunday Potluck following our weekly service. Keep in mind we are an earth centered congregation and prefer to limit unhealthy and highly processed food and wasteful paper products. Fresh locally sourced meats, cheese, fruits and vegetables are welcome. If you you can jot down on a label your recipe name and ingredients, it helps others who have dietary restrictions.

    By the way, don’t be shy if you cannot bring anything! We love to share and there is always more than enough for everyone. Your company is all we request!

    Dads Make a Difference. And yet, too many dads today are not involved in their children’s lives. Not because they do not want to be involved but things have simply gone wrong. Relationships with their children’s mother have become strained, jobs have fail, and life has gotten complicated and disappointing. Too often, fathers missed the best instructor of all: their own fathers as a positive role model.

    A Father’s Place is here to help because we care about fathers and their families. A Father’s Place is the only non-profit with more than ten years of experience in the Waccamaw region whose sole mission is to help fathers overcome the barriers to being a responsible and involved father. We are located in Conway, Myrtle Beach and Georgetown, South Carolina. We also serve fathers from surrounding counties including Williamsburg and Marion.

    Our staff understands fathers and families and is among some of the most experienced and knowledgeable fatherhood practitioners in our state. We serve approximately 200 fathers each year and there is room for more.

    In addition to supporting fathers and families, we are a resource to businesses seeking employees ready-to-work and community organizations who want to learn more about father absence and engaging fathers.

    Our program is sustained through the generous support of community organizations and individuals and government partnerships. We are a part of a network of fatherhood programs reaching all across the state which is supported and coordinated by the South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families. Collectively A Father’s Place programs and our peer fatherhood programs serve more than 1200 fathers annually.

    CALEB’S DRAGONFLY DREAMS

    Caleb’s Dragonfly Dreams is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that provides positive events and activities to abandoned, abused and neglected children that reside in shelters and group homes.

    Changing the lives of children who are currently living in three residential facilities in Horry & Georgetown Counties of South Carolina. We visited our first group home (Horry County Shelter Home) in 2008 and our goal is to branch out into other counties in South Carolina and one day touch every group home in the United States.

    Caleb’s Dragonfly Dreams provides lots of activities to these wonderful children, too many to list but some examples are tie dye shirts, trips to the water park in the summer, jewelry making, pizza & movie night, Birthday presents, and when we have the budget an awesome winter trip to go snow tubing in North Carolina and hiking to water falls.

    These activities are just a mere stepping stone to get to know the children and form a bond that last long after they are displaced from the group home.

    The residential facilities (we aren’t aloud to say orphanages anymore) have limited funding by the government. The funding barely covers clothing, food, and staffing. So extra activities are out of the question. We try to bridge the gap and make certain that these children have the opportunity to just be a normal kid.

    We understand that these activities cannot take away the hurt these children have endured, but we feel that exposure to new experiences can positively affect a child’s self- esteem and development. By just going to a football game and cheering them on from the sidelines or just giving a little girl a balloon for her birthday you can help shape a life.

    I have been asked many times to measure the success of our program, how can you measure a child’s a smile?

    Celebrating Samhain
    Worship, Holidays & Ceremonies

    Samhain, meaning “summer’s end,” is a celebration of the end of the harvest and the start of the coldest half of the year. For many practitioners, Samhain also is the beginning of the spiritual new year. Samhain is pronounced /ˈsɑːwɪn/ SAH-win or /ˈsaʊ.ɪn/ SOW-in

    In the Pagan or Earth-based calendar, divided into quarters by the solstices and equinoxes, great importance is placed on “cross-quarter” days: the days that fall halfway between each solstice and equinox (or between the equinox and solstice.)

    Samhain falls halfway between the Autumn Equinox (Mabon) and the Winter Solstice (Yule). In the northern hemisphere, many Pagans celebrate Samhain from sundown on October 31 through November 1. Others hold Samhain celebrations on the nearest weekend or on the Full or New Moon closest to this time. Some Pagans observe Samhain a bit later, or near November 6, to coincide more closely with the astronomical midpoint between Fall Equinox and Winter Solstice. Most Pagans in the southern hemisphere time their Samhain observances to coincide with the middle of their Autumn in late April and early May, rather than at the traditional European time of the holiday.

    With the growth and spread of Christianity as the dominant religion throughout Europe, Samhain time took on Christian names and guises. All Saints’ Day (or All Hallows) on November 1 commemorated Christian saints and martyrs. All Souls Day on November 2 was a remembrance for all souls of the dead. With the coming of Christian Spaniards to Mexico, the indigenous customs of honoring the dead at this time of year mixed with Roman Catholicism and gave birth to Día de los Muertos. Samhain shares the ancient spiritual practice of remembering and paying respects to the Dead with these related religious holidays of Christianity.
