New Life Purpose Ministries is holding its third annual Walk 4 Recovery at 10 a.m. Sept. 24 at Pleasant Hill Presbyterian Church, York Road.
The walk commemorates individuals who have taken the courage to recover from issues associated with substance abuse prevention, mental health disorders, cancer survivors, domestic violence, mothers of murdered offspring, mothers against drunk drivers, physical disabilities, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, HIV/Aids and PTSD. Agencies serving those individuals have been invited.
The Rev. Ricou Williams knows what it means to suffer from substance abuse and mental illness, and what it takes to overcome it. A Charlotte native who has lived in Clover for seven years hopes the fundraiser will help the 6-year-old ministry continue to help individuals with resources and life skills training.
Williams said the ministry helps to provide individuals with resources such as bus passes, food and clothing and assists clients with life skills training thanks to fellow churches Pleasant Hill Presbyterian Church and Christ the King Church.

Billy Graham Library opens ‘Crisis’ display
CHARLOTTE The Billy Graham Library’s new “Compassion in Crisis” display will be featured through Oct. 31, highlighting how the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has impacted significant crises in the last decades.
“Compassion in Crisis” gives visitors a current and historical overview of the BGEA’s two crisis response ministries: World Emergency Fund, founded in 1973; and the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team of chaplains, founded in 2002 following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. These ministries work to provide relief — physically, emotionally and spiritually — to those affected by man-made or natural disasters.
The display also features never-before-seen artifacts, including: a cross made from debris from the 9/11 attacks, a handwritten letter to Billy Graham from President Clinton expressing gratitude for Graham’s participation in the prayer service after the Oklahoma City bombing, and a handmade spoon given to RRT staff following the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
Visitors will be able to tour the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team Mobile Ministry Center, a 10-wheeled, 10-speed Kenworth mobile command center that serves as the base of operations for the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team as they minister in devastated areas.
For information, visit BillyGrahamLibrary.org.
