Nancy Joyce, known largely as executive director of Community Ministry of North Augusta for the past 11 years, was the guest of honor at a reception held Aug. 11 at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. The Pittsburg native, whose last day in office was Aug. 10, is looking to spend more time in her role as a grandmother. She moved to North Augusta in 2007 and took on the ministry role in 2008, leading dozens of volunteers in an interdenominational effort to provide food, clothing, counseling and other forms of short- and long-term help for the needy.
