Folks at the Dakota Creek Christian Center held their eighth annual community Christmas banquet to support The Bridge at Birch Bay. The event took place on December 18 and featured food, dancers and an ensemble of singers. Pastor at the center, Lee Connors, shared his vision for the Bridge at Birch Bay, located at 4815 Alderson Road. Down the road, he and his wife Rosemary Reuss-Connors hope the facility will develop into a community hub, equipped with a learning center, counseling services and much more.
