Parish Property Transitions

Praying Hands with Jerusalem Cross

 

 

 

Please keep the following congregations, their leaders and clergy in your prayers as they move through this season of transition having had their petitions for rehearing denied by the South Carolina Supreme Court. These parishes are moving  from their historic properties into (for the most part) temporary worship spaces. The following details are provided for prayer support, for those who would like to attend final and first worship services and for those wanting to write notes of encouragement. We are creating a development fund for financial contributions which will be open soon.
