Storm Update | Christ Church News
Dear Members of Christ Church,
As the strong rain and gusty winds from the outer bands of Hurricane Irma beat down on the Low country this afternoon, I trust that you are staying safe and dry. If you have any needs please do not hesitate to email or call me— 843.901.7788. Here are a couple of things I thought I’d pass along on this stormy day:
JOINT WORSHIP SERVICE | REDEEMER PCA
Due to the closure of Moultrie Middle School this weekend, at their invitation we decided to join Redeemer PCA downtown for their morning worship service. It was a blessing to see seven or eight of our families and many other friends at Redeemer for a beautiful and uplifting service with our sister congregation. The joint service was one of the unexpected blessings of a disrupted schedule. May the Lord use it to foster stronger unity and encouragement within the Low country Presbytery.
PRAYER FOR JACKIE WEAR
Please continue to pray for Jackie Wear and his dear wife Evelyn. Jackie suffered a serious heart attack on Friday morning. Though stable, Jackie is still in ICU so that the nurses and doctors can keep a close watch on his heart. Please pray for healing, wisdom (for the doctors on treatment plan), and peace. Pray for God to draw near to Jackie and Evelyn as they wait upon the Lord.
CHRIST CHURCH | 2018 SUMMER MISSIONS
We are excited to announce dates for two mission trips that will be offered next summer. The first will be a trip to Lima, Peru, June 20-28th. The second will be to Cushendall, Northern Ireland, July 11-20th. Both trips will include VBS, evangelistic outreach, Bible conferences, etc. More details to come this fall. So far there has been very little interest in the Peru trip and moderate interest in the Northern Ireland trip. Please contact me directly if you are interested in participating in one of these two summer trips.
FALL CHURCH PICNIC | SEPTEMBER 23
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, September 23 as we gather at Palmetto Islands County Park for our fall church picnic. We will get started at 11:30 and wrap up around 3:00. This is always a great time of fellowship and fun (pastoral injuries notwithstanding) so please plan to join us! More details to come.
