  • The January meeting of the Greater Shallotte Ministerial Association began with a bang. It wasn’t the sound of a gavel calling all to order, nor a fireworks display that announced the beginning of a new year.
    It was a summons to discipleship given by two guest speakers. The message was not a novel one, but it was an entreaty begging for awareness and response. It was an appeal for us to open our eyes, ears, minds and hearts to the plight of the needy, from hungry schoolchildren to beleaguered seniors.

  • Life groups are forming for everyone
    Freedom Outreach Center, 1790 Oxpen Road in Supply, is now organizing Life Groups for the first semester (January-April).
    Life Groups are for everyone, including young married couples with children, women, men, young adults, retirees or a mixture of people.
    A Life Group is a group of three to 15 people and can meet anywhere. It is particularly important with our busy lifestyles to make time with other believers to learn about God’s Word, pray, share a meal, or fellowship, organizers say.

  • If you’re in the mood for something different but don’t really want to go out to eat, you can’t go wrong with some delicious Thai chicken satay served on skewers with your own homemade peanut dipping sauce.
    This dish is easy and takes less than an hour to prep and cook. Strips of chicken, beef or pork are marinated in an easy-to-make Thai marinade, and then skewered and grilled or broiled in the oven. The skewered meat is then served with your own homemade peanut sauce for the ultimate taste sensation. Satay also makes for a terrific party food.
