Holy Week and Easter services

Holy Week services will be Maundy Thursday at 7:30 p.m. with Holy Communion and Good Friday at 7:30 p.m. with the service of Tenebrae. Join us for the observance of the Passion of our Lord.

We will be celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord on Easter Sunday, April 1. There will be a sunrise service on the church lawn at 7 a.m. with breakfast to follow. There will be no Sunday School, but we will hold our second worship service at 10:30 a.m. in the sanctuary.

Community Service Group

This spring St. Paul started a community  service group. The group meets Wednesdays from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. The group is open anyone. Some of the projects we will be working on include community meals, making   scarves for the homeless, packing backpacks, baking frozen meals for Sistercare and The  Ronald McDonald House.

We need cans of paint, food, money, cloth and more. If you have anything you can donate us, it will be helpful.

This is a great opportunity for Beta Club students to get their service hours. For more information, call Charlotte Werts at 803-364-4365.

Faith Foundation Fund

With thankfulness for the response of so many congregations from around the country in our time of great loss after our church building burned, a motion was made and passed by St. Paul Church Council to establish a fund, Faith Foundation, that assists congregations in rebuilding after a disaster.

The money will be distributed each year to a congregation in need. A quarterly offering will be taken for this fund. The first offering was held March 30, 2014 and funds were designated for Trinity AME in Silverstreet after the church’s roof collapsed during a 2014 snow storm.
