St. David’s has also been actively supporting Safe Water projects in Tanzania for several years. Late last year a member of Pastor Nemo’s congregation was struck blind by illness and became homeless, so St. David’s contributed towards building him a cottage. Rev. James Laurence is planning to join several others from the SC Synod Global Mission Team on a trip to Tanzania in August as we continue to grow our relationship with the Matamba Congregation and the Southwest Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania with additional Safe Water, education and housing projects. Drought and famine are new problems facing our brothers and sisters this year in addition to their many other needs. God indeed is using our hands to reach our community, including all the way around the world.
We are over half way to our goal! Join the effort to launch Latino ministry to new levels in South Carolina. Make your gift today.
And, help us reach the $50,000 challenge if at least half of our congregations participate. Click here for more information about how congregations can share this story with your members.
This is Christ’s Church. There is a place for you here.
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person–questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.
