Fore Her Seeks Breast Cancer Patients in Need
fore-her-logoLocal non-profit, Fore Her, is currently accepting requests from breast cancer patients in need of financial assistance. The Santa Rosa Beach based organization provides monetary support to women across the Emerald Coast who are battling breast cancer, allowing those patients to request funds for whatever is most pressing––whether that’s paying the mortgage or even an auto repair. Fore Her is a 501(c)3 organization that was started in memory of Founder Amy Walsh’s mother and aunt, who both lost their battle with breast cancer. “The community has generously supported our organization over the last six years, and we want to make sure these funds get to those in need,” Walsh said. Those in need of financial assistance can go to to submit a request.

Community Bible Study Class Begins! First Class August 27th
Community Bible Study (CBS) is an international, inter-denominational organization committed to helping people grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ by exploring the Bible. CBS classes are structured, in-depth studies of the Bible. Classes are comprised of people from many different churches who gather for in-depth Bible study because it complements their local church and helps them grow spiritually. Class members belong to and actively support their local church; many are servants and leaders in their congregations. CBS concentrates on the essentials of the Christian faith, not on denominational differences. Through love and respect for one another, Christians can hold differing views on matters that are not essential to salvation. The goal of CBS is to build unity in the church in the midst of Christian diversity. Everyone is welcome and made to feel comfortable in their class regardless of background, education, church involvement, ethnicity or economic status.

The first introductory meeting begins on Tues., Aug. 27, from at 7- 8:30 p.m. at the Destin campus of Destiny Worship Center, 122 Poinciana Blvd., in Miramar Beach. Each student will receive a study guide; beginning topic will be the book of Galatians. Men and women in the area are invited to come and bring a friend!
