Take a moment to hear a message of hope as Central Baptist Church plays host to the Children of the World International Children's Choir at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18 at the church, 512 Spring St. The choir, comprised of orphans and disadvantaged children from several countries, represents a rich and culturally diverse group, each with an urgent story to tell about their diverse backgrounds. This year's Rescue Tour focuses attention on the impact that poverty, malnutrition and dirty water have on millions of children worldwide.
Throughout the holiday season, from Nov. 24 through Dec. 24, the City continues to promote shopping in town with its Shop Darlington Challenge. The 30-day event, hosted on Facebook, encourages residents to spend their hard-earned dollars in the City and challenge their friends, neighbors, coworkers, and church family to do the same. Photos of gift ideas from local businesses are posted every weekday with an album of all the photos kept on the City Facebook page as well.
