Vox Water Project Underway
The Vox Water Project is well underway with people from all areas of the Vox community signed up and paid. Due to a change in onset of the project, the $150 tap fee opportunity has been extended so anyone interested in signing up before the lines are run may do so as soon as possible. Keep in mind that, after the cut off for the special rate is met, the standard $1,000 tap fee cost. Persons who pay but whose lines are not run in this phase of the project will have their money refunded. Please visit City Hall or call 843.386.2069 for more information.
2015 Christmas Star Awarded The Johnsonville City Council voted unanimously to present the 2015 Christmas Star award to the congregation of Johnsonville First Baptist Church and those volunteers who assisted them during the flood of 2015. The presentation was made by Mayor Steve Dukes (third from left) during the Church's Sunday worship service. Accepting on behalf of the Church were key volunteers in the relief efforts (from left) Genevieve Weaver, Laura Taylor, David Taylor, Mary Myers, and Bryan Myers.
During the presentation Dukes pointed out that the service of the many First Baptist volunteers during the disaster helped build up the faith of those who had lost most or all of their earthly possessions. He also noted that the original Christmas Star was what led wise men to the Messiah while the award to First Baptist is all the more special because the church continues to lead people to Jesus.
Following the presentation the Church's minister, Rev. Chad Hastings, recognized the nearly 100 volunteers in the congregation who also worked to assist the community during the flood. The many ways the Church worked during the disaster included: offering facilities for Red Cross and North Carolina Baptist Men Disaster Relief to work and stay; providing food, clothing, and necessary items for victims; and continuing their ministry efforts even after the flood waters subsided.
