World Mission Focus 8am & 10am

Gloria Kwashi, wife of Archbishop Benjamin Kwashi, will be joining us for services on Sunday, April 30th.  We plan to send Gloria home with a suitcase full of computers for her school.  Plans are in the works for a CSP team to join her in Nigeria this fall to work on the computer lab at her school.

Continuing in the World Missions theme, we will be praying over and commission the CSP team going to work in Iraq the first of May.  The Iraq Team of Nancy Borrett, Steve and Paula Coffin, Emma Herman, and Teresa Parish leave May 4th to join the Kramers in Northern Iraq. In the midst of a complicated political situation, it is easy to lose sight of the people and motive behind the mission. Get a better understanding of why they are going and see how Love for the Least Middle East is tending to our brothers and sisters: Visit the Love for the Least Middle East website at L4LME.org.

Please keep our team in your prayers and your support is always appreciated. Checks can be written to CSP with Iraq team in the memo line or donations can be made online at The Mission Trip to Iraq GoFundMe page.

Safeguarding God's Children 10am - 1pm

safeguarding_group.jpg

All Youth & Children's Ministry volunteers need to complete the Safeguarding God's Children training.  Anyone who is planning on volunteering at VBS or Summer Youth Quest needs to complete the training on May 20th.

From the Diocese of South Carolina: 

There is no question what a precious treasure our children are. As leaders in the Diocese of South Carolina, we have a moral, spiritual and canonical obligation to exercise due diligence in assuring that their faith formation happens in a safe environment. History teaches us clearly that this is not an outcome we can take for granted. There are steps we can and must take to assure the joy of their Christian Faith is not stolen from those in our care.

It is with that purpose in mind that the Diocese offers the “Safeguarding God’s Children” workshops across the Diocese. The workshops continue to be led by Mrs. Polly Sosnowski, whose years of service as a licensed clinical social worker in South Carolina make her a marvelous resource for this training. The training provided will cover the necessary material to fulfill both diocesan canons and local parish guidelines.

This Sunday: 1st Sunday of Advent

This Sunday: 1st Sunday of Advent

Advent is the beginning of the Church Year. It begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day. Advent is a time to prepare our hearts for the celebration of Christ’s Birth and for his second coming. Advent also symbolizes our spiritual journey as individuals and as a congregation, as we affirm that Christ has come, that He is present in the world today, and that He will come again in power. Advent is marked by a spirit of expectation, of anticipation, of preparation, and of longing.

This Sunday, we will light one purple candle on the Advent Wreath. The Candle of Hope. We can have hope because God is faithful and will keep the promises made to us.

Why purple? This is the color of penitence and fasting as well as the color of royalty to welcome the Advent of the King. The purple of Advent is also the color of suffering used during Lent and Holy Week. This points to an important connection between Jesus’ birth and death.
