Immigrant assistance to be N.C. Baptist outreach

CARY, N.C. (BP) -- North Carolina Baptists are stepping up their ministry to immigrants. A new Baptist Immigrant Services (BIS) ministry being gradually launched by the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSCNC) will set up a yet-unspecified number of immigration ministry centers across the state. The first center is being established in Lincolnton. Churches and associations will be encouraged to establish a variety of ministry efforts to engage immigrants with the Gospel. In addition, the ministry centers will be staffed by individuals trained and qualified to help immigrants understand their rights and immigration options.

LEXINGTON, N.C. (BP) -- Tempted to skip choir practice? Maybe you should think about Mallory Carrick and his sister Katy Palmer.

His sister Katy Palmer has played piano and organ at Mountain View for about 67 years. She's now 82 and still playing on Sundays.
