Ministerial Association helps with more than prayer


Another worthy organization that could use your financial support is the Barnwell County Ministerial Association.

This group helps many people with basic needs, such as paying their light bill or providing food. They also offer prayer and a little bit of spiritual support.

The BCMA relies on donations to support their cause. Donations can be made anytime, but we especially encourage those attending the upcoming Lenten worship services to dig into your pockets and give generously.

If you’ve never been to the services, they are a wonderful opportunity, particularly for people of the Christian faith, to prepare for Easter.

Lent, which is a time of fasting and prayer, kicks off next Wednesday, March 1 with Ash Wednesday. Services will be held every Wednesday from Ash Wednesday to the week of Easter at various churches around Barnwell.

The services are great opportunities to come together as a community, regardless of one’s denomination. Each service starts with a meal followed by a 30-minute service of music, prayer and a message.
