October 10, 2016 .. As you are aware we are all concerned about the recent events hurricane Matthew has created across several countries and the eastern coast of the United States, in particular here in South Carolina. I have worked throughout the weekend and as recent as this morning to try to find out how much damage has been done to our churches, their families, and the families of our congregations. I have been unable to find out much as it relates to our laity, however, I can report to you that the Georgetown, Andrews, Lake City, and Coward churches have sustained water damage to their facilities.
I am aware there has been some other minor water and roof damage to Hamer, Dillon, Palmetto Street, and New Covenant. Also, a tree went through the roof of the parsonage at North Myrtle Beach. If there are any other damages, I am not aware. Much of what our pastors along the coast are dealing with are power outages and downed trees.
As of this morning, Operation Compassion has sent one semi-truck load of supplies to Conway, Pastor Jacobs. There will be another load that will go to Andrews, Pastor Edward Hardee. There are two Service Master crews coming from Ohio to help with the water damage. If you know of other damages that the State Office can help in coordinating, please contact as at 864.963.4751 x2.
We will try to keep you informed of any ways you may be of help. Of course, resources, manpower, and financial help are always needed in times like this. The most important thing we can all do is please pray for all of those affected by Hurricane Matthew.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any updates.
