We want to welcome you to the new digital home of the people of The United Methodist Church.,
UMC.ORG the denomination’s official website, has gotten a makeover!
The Older Adult 2014 Mission Event will be held in the Anderson District April 28 through May 1.
Older Adults 50+, from the South Carolina Conference, gather each Spring to serve in one of the Districts in the South Carolina Conference.
We have possible opportunities to paint, build a handicap ramp, redo a kitchen, clean yards, plant flowers, replace light fixtures, replace ceiling tiles, organize food pantries or clothing closets. We also have redone floors, replaced windows and window panes.
This group has lovingly been called Salkehatchie for Seniors.(but we do not work on roofs).
Please come join us this April as we worship and work together in the Anderson District.
Attached is a copy of the brochure, the brochures will be posted on the umcsc.org web site in February.
We’d love for you to be a part of something great!

I have a request from UMVIM-SC. We are honored to have Bishop Holston lead us in worship on April 13th. at 3:00 pm at Virginia Wingard UMC in Columbia. There will be a reception following. UMVIM-SC would like to invite all clergy in your district and chairs of the Outreach Committee and anyone else interested in missions to attend. If you could email this to your clergy and possibly put in it your newsletter I would be so grateful.
South Carolina is playing a key leadership role in organizing a big three-day conference for local church communicators held at Lake Junaluska later this month. The conference is organized by UMCSC Communications Director Matt Brodie, and he and I will be teaching workshops there, as will many other communications professionals across the jurisdiction. Can you please share the word about this with anyone you know who does communications in your local church, or in districts or ministries in your area? This can be a pastor, a church secretary, a volunteer communications person, etc.
Let me emphasize: this is for people who do LOCAL AND DISTRICT church communications, whether part-time, full-time, volunteer, professional, etc. It is designed to be a resource for regular people to help us all be more connectional in our communications.
It is extremely inexpensive (only $175, including lodging!). Reimbursement scholarships are available — apply to your district office.
In a nutshell:
Communicators Conference for local church communicators, district communicators and pastors
At Lake Junaluska, NC
$175 including lodging, meals and registration
Free tour of Biltmore included
Workshops, networking, fellowship, worship, more
To register: www.lakejunaluska.com/communicators or download the attached flyer for more details.
