Regional Missions

“...and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth”
- Jesus, Acts 1:8

We are called to share God’s love with the world. That means the people next door, across the state, and on the other side of the globe.

When it comes to sharing God's love, we don't stop with our immediate neighbors. We participate in several missions across South Carolina and the Southeast. You can read more about these regional mission efforts by clicking the tabs below. Those tabs with (*) are Cornerstone Missions.

* Salkehatchie

Salkehatchie

Salkehatchie Summer Service is a pioneering servant ministry at selected camp sites around South Carolina and parts of North Carolina and Georgia. High school and college students along with adult leaders give a week of their time to work to eradicate substandard housing. Quite simply, Salkehatchie is a week-long intense mission where students and adults come together to help make homes drier, safer and warmer.

Salkehatchie Summer Service is for high school and college age youth. Adult leaders are also needed to offer guidance and support. To learn how you can participate, please contact Leigh Randall.

Learn more about this effort of the South Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church at the Salkehatchie website.

Kairos Prison Ministry

Kairos Prison Ministry

Kairos programs offer to prison residents, their families and those who work with them, the opportunity to receive God's forgiveness and to grow in their faith and servanthood in Christian community.

Bi-annually Advent provides cookies for the Kairos weekend. Homemade cookies are a tangible expression of Christian love and an indication of God’s concern for a group of people who seldom encounter either in the course of their daily lives. Your loving sacrifice will provide “bread” that shines the Light of God’s Grace into the darkest corners of a prison unit. A typical Kairos Weekend will go through hundreds of dozens of cookies which are distributed to inmates, correction officers, support staff and yes, even team members! May God bless you for the gift of baking!

To learn how you can participate, please contact Beth Kelly. To learn more about the Kairos program, visit their website.
