On February 28, our Synod Council designated the offerings from the 2022 Assembly to the ministry of Restoration Chapel. The cruel hand of addiction, in some way, affects us all. Restoration Chapel of Greenwood has risen to meet the needs of our current addiction crisis. In this unique partnership between a ministry of the church and Lutheran Services Carolinas, 10 women in recovery have a safe space to live during a crucial point in their recovery journey. Just as importantly, they have a ministry that is there to walk with them and provide spiritual support – an important protective factor in recovery. Your support of Restoration Chapel continues important accompaniment work, provides scholarships for the women to enter the house, and furthers the work of the church’s response in a time where so many need what this ministry has to offer. This ministry makes a significant, positive impact in the lives of the people who experience it.
The Bishop invited The Rev. Chris Christopher and friends to come and share with us about the work of Restoration Chapel.
