Global Eyeglass Ministry (GEM)

Do you have any old prescription eyeglasses in a drawer? Donate them to GEM who partners with Christian church- es to enhance their global mission trips by providing vision resources.

A collection box is on the table in the narthex for glasses you no longer use. (no cases, sunglasses, or contacts…

Need Volunteers for 09-23-18

Hello church family,  The evangelism team is needing volunteers to bake chocolate cookies for the upcoming worship service on September 23rd. There can be a variety of the type of cookie you would like to bake but it should include chocolate (for the sermon series about chocolate Sunday’s).

Annual Conference Report

On June 3-6, the South Carolina Annual Conference met in Greenville. Pastor Brian attended with our delegates, Kirk Atwood and Leonard May.

While the Conference contained a lot of reports and resolutions to discuss, the theme…

Snacks

Our Administrative Council and Worship Committee have been looking at provision of snacks during our Contemporary worship service. We know there are many different opinions on this, but starting July 1 we are going to stop providing snacks in this service. We will still be serving coffee, juice and water, but wanted to inform par- ents so they can plan accordingly. Thank you for your understanding.

There will also be a service of reaffirmation of baptism for those who are interested. All are invited to attend. Please contact Pastor Brian if you want to participate in the service.

God-Sightings and Vacation Bible School

But when you see what happens in the lives of the children and the life of our church it makes it all worthwhile. This year’s theme is “Shipwrecked,” and each day will focus on how Jesus rescues…
