On May 21, the Presbytery of Charlotte meeting was conducted at Locust Presbyterian Church. Following worship, the new Presbyterian Disaster Building was dedicated. The building, behind the church, will house supplies that will be used following a disaster. Along with putting together clean-up buckets, shower trailers will also be built to be taken to sites for volunteers to use. From left are: Alice Ridgill, associate presbyter; Dr. Edwin Shoaf; Rev. Ardy Skidmore, pastor of Locust Presbyterian Church; Matt Salyer, LPC elder; Rev. Jim Kirk, national Presbytery disaster agency; and Tommy Lawson, moderator of Charlotte Presbytery. (Contributed)
