The South Carolina Synod History Book Committee has been asking for your information for five years now, and all the hard work that’s been put into this project is gathering dust. All we’re asking for is information on your stories since 1987. Congregations who have faithfully responded are waiting for your input.
We have a set of beautiful photos of every church in the synod now, thanks to Bishop Emeritus David Donges, who traveled all over South Carolina to photograph every church structure in the best light possible.
We’ve had input from some gifted writers. We’ve worked with a printer, but the quotes we got from them are now outdated…because we’re still waiting for your input.
The groundwork has been laid for the history volumes, but this project has been on hold for some time now, because the team of volunteers hasn’t received the information from all our congregations. And still…we wait. Click here to find out whether we’re waiting for your congregation.
If you are on the list, please find out whether anyone is working on this.
So…what’s keeping you from sending an update?
If your congregation has had absolutely nothing going on for the past 25 years, please let us know.
If your congregation just doesn’t want to be included in the new history books, please let us know.
If you don’t know where to start with this, please let us know. We can help, but we can’t just make up your stories. We don’t KNOW your stories.
But please don’t just keep putting this off. It’s not fair to hold the project hostage. Don’t let your stories be lost.
Start SOMEWHERE. And SOON.
Contact Carol Nordquist today and let her know what your situation is.
