ROCKINGHAM — Gospel Music Hall of Famer Carman brought his musical ministry to Roberdel Baptist Church Nov. 18.  

“We are very excited to have Carman as a guest singer,” said church member Logan McKenzie, who began coordinating the concert in July.

EAST ROCKINGHAM — The halls of Place of Grace were decked with Christmas cheer this past weekend as brightly lit trees, along with decorated wreaths, greeted all those who entered.

The Forest of Hope event, which raised around $17,000, was centered around Christmas and created to support— as well as expand — the rescue mission’s services which are provided to the homeless. 

The sight and the sounds of the ‘50s came to life Oct. 31 as Place of Grace Campus hosted its first annual Fall Festival. The community began arriving around 6 p.m. dressed in their ‘50s best.

The festivities began at 6:30 p.m. and lasted until 8:30 p.m. A large homemade jukebox greeted everyone as they arrived dressed in poodle skirts, rolled-up blue jeans and leather jackets. 

It takes a special person who is willing to give up the comforts of normal everyday living to venture out into the missions field. 

One must become selfless in order to focus solely on the needs of others. 

Some know their calling in this field years before it takes place, but for Jason Harris it came suddenly. 

ROCKINGHAM - Tis the season to celebrate fall as the most refreshing time of the year. It not only brings cooler temperatures along with colorful changing of leaves, but it also brings many anticipated fall festivals. On that note, there will be an exciting and unique event of that nature on Wednesday October 31, 2018 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the campus of Place of Grace.

ROCKINGHAM - There is a time in most all of our lives when we come to a crossroads and have to make hard decisions; decisions that could make or break us. Situations and circumstances cause us to move out of our comfort zones and step into the unknown. If we stay in these zones we will most likely be left empty and stagnant unless we choose to move forward.

NORFOLK, VA. - Men and women daily make the decision to serve our country by joining the military. This decision is possibly one of the hardest, yet most rewarding, decisions one can make. Family moves often, as the person serving is relocated time after time. The spouse has to be as strong as the person serving, as it is crucial for them to show support by adjusting to the constant changes. Joining the service takes one into the unknown, while at the same time gives a sense of self-worth as one’s focus is on the main reason for joining: protecting and serving our country, the United States of America.

Dancing With The Stars: A Night of Magic

HAMLET - Ticketholders began arriving early on September 8, 2018, dressed in their best attire as the much anticipated night of Dancing With The Stars was finally at hand. The sense of magic was immediately felt upon entering the venue as the theme from Walt Disney World greeted all.

HAMLET - On Saturday, September 8, 2018, the Cole Auditorium in Hamlet, NC will come alive with excitement as couples put on their dancing shoes to compete in the annual fundraiser benefit “Dancing With the Stars” hosted by Richmond County Hospice and sponsored by Mabry’s Drug and Home Care in Hamlet.

This year’s event will open at 5:30 p.m. in the Banquet Room of the Cole Auditorium, kicking-off with the “Taste of the Sandhills” lineup: over 20 restaurants will be represented with each offering a taste of their specialty. A cash bar will also be open to offer beer and wine, and a DJ will be providing music for all who attend. An open floor will also be available for all who would like to do a little dancing of their own before the big event.

ROCKINGHAM - If you live in or around Richmond County and love good seafood and/or a great steak, then you have probably eaten at Captain George Seafood Restaurant in Rockingham. The business will be celebrating its’ fifth anniversary in November of this year, but the history began long before.
