EPWORTH IS OUR MINISTRY!

    Did you know that in the last year Epworth Children's Home served over 1,000 children and families? Each of these children has this opportunity because of United Methodist churches in South Carolina who embrace and provide for this ministry in support of the children and families in our state. We will participate in the annual Mother's Day Offering was on Sunday May 8th, 2022 to benefit the children who call Epworth home, as well as each child and family touched by Epworth's ministries. Please be in prayerful consideration of what God is calling you to give to this valuable and life changing ministry.  For more information about Epworth Children's Home, visit them online at www.epworthchildrenshome.org.

 

Blessing Boxes We now have two Blessing Boxes! They are both being frequently visited so please bring your donations to place in the Blessing Box donation containers at church entrances or to the church office. Please help us keep these boxes supplied for our community members in need.

 

Nursing Homes Project Our first donations of Bingo Prizes went to Heartland and Ellen Sagar Nursing Homes. The (employees and the residents were thrilled! Please continue to support this ministry!

 

Interpretive DanceWe are excited for our first Princesses of the King interpretive dance performance.  Hazel Lawson, Ember Love, and Lane Wagner have been practicing weekly with Mrs. Vickie Phillips, assisted by Trinity Smith.  We appreciate Vickie beginning this new ministry.
