Families pick up the pieces of storm-damaged lives

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH—When Angel Roesch-Hairston and her family returned to their home in Cherry Grove after evacuating for Hurri­cane Matthew, they found destruc­tion.

Safety seminars offer churches advice on establishing security policies

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH—Houses of worship might be spiritual sanctuaries, but sadly can’t keep people safe from physical danger.

That’s why pastors and lay people […]
