The Leiningers

Happy New Year

NO, It's Not Snowing in South Carolina but, in celebration of the season and in honor of all our friends in the midwest and north who have been having to contend with the white stuff, we have some here in cyberspace again that no one has to shovel or blow off.


HAPPY HOLIDAYS... And it surely is for Hilton Head Leiningers. David continues busy with brides and grooms (and Moms and Dads and Aunts and Uncles...). The wedding season here is year-round - letting up a bit during the winter months, but not so much as might be imagined. Christie remains busy with the Hilton Head Choral Society, Choirs and Handbells at church, not to mention maintaining our beautiful home. Of course, we are MOST thankful this year for the event noted pictorially above - an early Christmas celebration as Chris, Erin, granddog Gracie plus young David joined Mom and Dad over the Thanksgiving holiday. We were grateful to be able to celebrate TOGETHER for the first time in several years.


Our 2016 Christmas Letter is online again this year. In an effort to "go green," not to mention that this wonderful medium is the way more and more of us are communicating these days, leads us to embrace the by-now-not-particularly-new technology. Next year, maybe we will tweet it (NOT!!!) Click here to read it, then send us e-mail so that we can find yours as well.


wedding ceremony

Wedding Destination - No surprise, Hilton Head Island and the surrounding Carolina Low Country has become a most desirable site for folks to come from far and wide to solemnize their marriages. South Carolina law allows a variety of officials (judges, notaries, etc.) to officiate at such ceremonies, but many couples ask specifically if a minister might be available. Since pastors actively serving churches are often reluctant to take on additional responsibilities that do not involve members of their own congregations, that means the pool of available clergy is somewhat limited. Enter David. Officiating at such affairs has become a most enjoyable form of ministry. 2016 was an incredibly busy year (almost 100 ceremonies) and the calendar for 2017 is already filling up. For details about the process, click here or on the "Weddings" button at left and we will be happy to assist. But if it is actually SNOWING, let's do it inside.
