Building life-changing relationships

Pumpkin Patch Volunteers Needed

Pumpkin Patch Sign Up

Please join us in the Pumpkin Patch!
We have a lot of shifts to cover, and we need everyone’s help.  No experience needed. A detailed manual will be available at the patch for reference. So grab a friend and sign up for a shift or two and help us raise money to help our community.

All proceeds of the patch will benefit: Rebuild Upstate, Salkehatchie, Greenville County Juvenile Detention Facility, and a scholarship fund for our preschool.

From the Reset – Restart – Renew Annual Conference Guidelines:
 
“At every church event – including worship – announce that anyone present should notify the church immediately if they test positive for COVID-19.”

Sign Up

As we return to worship, we are slowly incorporating different aspects of our service – one of those being acolytes.  We had a group of very excited new acolytes train in March and then never get to serve because of the shutdown.  Marie and Frances have both now served for the first time, all on their own.   Usually our first-time acolytes serve with a seasoned acolyte, but due to social distancing they had to serve solo and handled it like pros!

The new (Nov/Dec) Upper Room has arrived and is available to pick. They can be picked up in a basket outside the office door for contactless.

Come join the Missions Team on October 25th at 3pm in the Cady Shelter for their socially distanced Flood Bucket assembly and then stick around for Trivia Night.

Hug A Friend Nomination

We had so much fun “hugging” church members in the spring, that now we’re going to “hug” our community members, friends, and neighbors by placing a sign in their yard. If there’s someone you know that would appreciate a hug, please nominate them below. The Outreach team will place the sign and move it so you only need to nominate! You can nominate more than one person/family.
