Each spring, congregations across the South Carolina Synod participate in an “Operation Inasmuch” day of service. This year’s target date is April 14, 2018.
Operation Inasmuch helps churches move out of the seats and into the streets to serve their neighbors in need. It’s a time for everyone to do hands-on ministry outside the walls of their buildings. Groups from different congregations join forces, plan projects, and spend time working together.
Don’t forget to report back! When your service day is over, please be sure to have someone be responsible for filling out the short report form and sending it in. Use the short report form, print it out and send it in. REPORT DEADLINE: (We will update information and the download forms soon.)

There is, however, more for us to know about this blessing and about Saint Francis.read more
