PRESBYTERIAN COLLEGE – Our church provides and endows a scholarship for local students who want to attend a Christian liberal arts college with deep Presbyterian roots.

DISASTER RELIEF – We have taken groups to work in disaster relief in our region.? We have taken groups to MS, LA, FL GA, and SC.  We are an active host site for Flood Relief for PDA starting in 2016.  There were 12,000 families flooded out in SC and the midlands were hit hardest.  We provided immediate relief as a distribution center for people to give to the local shelters that sprang up.  We filled and emptied our gymnasium 12 times, and distributed a whole gym-load of bottled water as there was a water advisory for up to 4 weeks for some in our area. In the midst of this help we saw God at work in love for neighbor and stranger.  As Jesus said, “When you do something for the least of these- you do it for me.”

We offer immediate help to people in need through our One Great Hour of Sharing Offering taken at Easter.
You may give to disaster causes through our church anytime – and Presbyterian Disaster Association (PDA).
We occasionally take groups to help with disaster relief.
