Church gives back to local middle school

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Leland, NC (WWAY) — For many people Sunday is a day of worship, but one local church is doing its part to ensure its message resonates long past the Sunday bells.

For over a year Heath Caddell was a pastor without a pulpit. Recently Leland Middle School gave Caddell and his congregation a place to call home.

“In our heart we didn’t want to just create another church,” said Heath Caddell. “We want to truly have an impact on our community and that’s partly why we’re doing what we’re doing here at this middle school”

Just as the school has adopted Reach Community Church, the church has adopted the school and made it their personal mission to ensure that the students there have a better learning environment.

“We come in and kind of clean things up,” said Caddell. “We came in and painted bathrooms, we’ve cleaned hallways, painted squares around the pencil sharpeners. Just really whatever we can do.”

Though the church is brand new their message is already inspiring others to pitch in as twenty volunteers drove from Chapel Hill to help renovate Leland Middle School.

Caddell and his congregation hope to plant the seed of faith one classroom at a time.

Reach Community Church will meet every Sunday morning at 10:00 A.M. at Leland Middle School.

Winnabow, NC (WWAY) – Robert Kye started at the Winnabow Volunteer Fire Department when he was fifteen years old, and fifty years later his passion for firefighting still burns bright.

“It’s a great career, volunteer or paid either one,” said Robert Kye. “It’s brings a lot of challenges but it has a lot of rewards and it’s something that you can do for your community. It just takes a special person to do it.”

For his fifty years of service Kye received a commendation from the North Carolina senate and general assembly. Kye was also bestowed with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine by Governor Bev Perdue.

Friends say that these awards are well deserved but they’re truly the ones that are getting rewarded by simply knowing Robert Kye.
