  • Fewer churches participating in Lord's Acre Sale

    It's not the recession that could lead to the end of the Lord's Acre Sale, which is held every September in Galax's Felts Park for nearly 60 years.

  • Local churches helping out in Costa Rica

    When the Rev. Ricardo Alvarado, pastor of the Hispanic congregation at First Baptist Church of Galax, visited a halfway house in Costa Rica in March, he saw something he didn't know existed in his own country — a poorly pieced-together structure made from whatever wood and metal could be found.

    The floors were dirt and there were wood-sided outhouses nearby.

    Members of First Baptist Church of Galax, Hillsville Christian Church, First Baptist Church of Hillsville and Cornerstone Community Church in Galax are coming together to fix that situation.
