Do You Have Needs? Or Would You Like To Help Those Who Do?

News--Joshua 1.9

St. Philip’s is assembling a response team for our church members while we are all experiencing the challenges of COVID-19. This is a united effort of the Compassion Committee, the Home Missions Team, the Disaster Relief Committee, and our clergy. We are here to help each other!

Please contact us if...

  • You or a family member needs help getting groceries, prescriptions, running critical errands (FYI: Delta Pharmacy and Pitt Street Pharmacy both deliver).
  • You or a family member is living in essential isolation and would like to hear from the church or a member of the clergy. 
  • You or a family member would be willing to help with these efforts!

We will initially be using Compassion Committee resources to find volunteers as needed, but we are prayerfully and specifically asking for younger volunteers to shop, deliver, and run errands. Do you have older children returning home at this time? If so, they can be a great help in this effort!

Please email Monti Hanger at mhanger@bellsouth.net or call Callie McLaurin at (803) 530-2323 if you are available to serve or if you need assistance!

Prayer requests
In addition, if you or family member would like a member of the St. Philip’s Prayer Team to call and pray with you, please reach out to Juanita Orvin at (843) 884-4018, and she will be happy to arrange this.

May God empower us to reach out to others in this time of need!

In Christ Alone,

The St. Philip’s Joshua 1:9 Initiative

Praying
Please add Lowcountry Pregnancy Center, another Home Missions partner, to your daily prayers.

A message from Swain Marion, Home Missions Team Chair: Lowcountry Pregnancy Center has had to shut down the ministry right now but have asked that we pray for the health of the staff so that they will be able to go back to work as soon as they are able to open back up. Also to pray for the mommas and babies who are not able to receive services right now.
