Blog — Wycliffe Associates' Dinner

WYCLIFFE ASSOCIATES’ DINNER

Come, join us at the Spring Wycliffe Bible Translators' dinner on Saturday, April 21, 6:00 pm at the Hilton Garden Inn.  During the evening you will hear how new translation methods and innovative technology are changing Bible translation from approximately twenty years (start to finish) to less than a year in some cases.  Pastor Jacob Ramothudi, Wycliffe Regional Coordinator for Southern Africa, is the guest speaker.  If you have visited JAARS in Waxhaw, you know something about Wycliffe.  The Associates are the funding arm of Wycliffe.  There is no charge, but reservations are required.  A love offering is taken to help defray the cost of the meal.  Contact Janie Matson, 803-980-2357, to make your reservation.

 

 

 

EPWORTH MOTHER'S DAY OFFERING

Epworth Mother’s Day Offering

Coming Up May 13

     Epworth Children’s Home serves children from communities throughout South Carolina who are

referred from abusive and parentless homes for care through high school and beyond. In the last year, 184 children called Epworth home, and they received

loving care, academic assistance, spiritual encouragement, medical and dental care, and emotional and physical support. Epworth does not receive apportionments from the South Carolina Conference and relies on

United Methodist congregations’ donations to the annual Mother’s Day and Work Day Offerings. Prayerfully consider what you can give on Mother’s Day, May 13. Aldersgate has supported Epworth well in recent years and Epworth is counting on us to continue that support. Find more information at www.epworthchildrenshome.org.

 

 

pril Mission Project - PROJECT HOPE

PROJECT HOPE

      For the past 40 years, HOPE has been a first responder to families in crisis: providing them with  enough food for a full week of meals (2) for each member of the family. Our thinking is that once their immediate food needs were met,individuals then could focus on dealing with the cause of  their crisis: get a new job, get healthy, get safer living arrangements with an overall focus on getting back to a little more stability in their lives.

    We are collecting canned goods such as corn, greens beans, tomatoes, mixed vegetables, spaghetti sauce, assorted beans, rice, MAC-N-Cheese, Hamburger Helpers, spaghetti O’s.

    Many thanks!! Your Mission Committee
