Offering info on local churches

We here at The Inter-Mountain are working to bring you the best news coverage, along with information that’s useful to you in your daily life.

Toward that end, we ask you to take a look at our new Saturday Religion Section, on pages C4 and C5 of today’s edition.

Our goal with the new Religion Section is to provide columns from local religious leaders as well as photos and articles regarding churches and religious activities in our area.

We also want the Religion Section to provide a comprehensive listing of local churches, with their address, phone number and email address.

Compiling this listing has been a big job, and remains a work in progress.

We are asking church members for their help in gathering this information.

An information box on page C5 contains the following text:

“We regret the omissions of any local churches in our Worship Directory. If your church is not listed we would love to include it in our directory.

“Also, to participate in a spiritual message to the public, please call Jane Howell at 304-636-2121, ext. 111 or email

jhowell@theintermountain.com to participate or for more information.”

Jane Howell is serving as the editor of the new Religion Section and has been communicating with local pastors and church leaders. She looks forward to working with representatives of all our local churches.

If you’re searching for ways to contribute to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, there are several opportunities to help with what unfortunately looks to be a longterm project.

The Alderson Broaddus University Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be at the AB football game against Saginaw Valley today to collect funds to send to the American Red Cross to help those affected by the hurricane.

The students will be standing at the gate upon entry and around the stadium before kickoff and during the game.

Kickoff for today’s ABU game is slated for noon and gates open at 10:30 a.m.

SAAC serves as the primary governance arm representing student-athlete interesting in Division II affairs.

Those wishing to donate to the relief efforts can also visit redcross.org, call 1- 800-RED CROSS or text the word HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Donations enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from this disaster.

The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

For more information, please visit redcrosswv.org or go to Twitter at @ARCWV.
