Location Update for January 3rd

Due to water damage, there will not be a video service in the gym on the 3rd. We will still have our regular service in the sanctuary. Please enter through doors near the sanctuary. The entrance near the elevator, gym and kitchen will not be accessible. Masks will be required. Sunday School is still canceled due to COVID. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Schedule Update

Want to let you know that, over the past few weeks, we have had several leaders and members test positive for COVID19. In light of this, the decision has been made to cancel Sunday School for January 3rd, 2021.

If you are a Sunday School teacher, please contact your class members (or in the case of children, their parents) to be sure they are aware of this change.

We will continue with worship services Sunday at 10:30 am in the sanctuary. Please note that MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED and will be provided for anyone who does not have one.

Christmas Prisoner Packs

Over the last many years, South Carolina Baptists  have participated in giving  a gift to prisoners in the SC Prison System in Columbia.  We had a former member who told us what a blessing these packets were to him while he was in prison.  Many of you have enjoyed participating in this project.  If you would like to do that again this year, the Saluda Baptist Association will collect them and carry them to Columbia in time for them to be distributed before Christmas:  There will be a basket to collect them in the Welcome Center and we will be sure to get them to the Associational office.  They are due by Wednesday, November 4.

Prisoner Kits – each kit contains:
– one black (only) non-retractable ink pen (no wire clip)
– one writing tablet – no larger than 5 l/2″ X 8″  (not wire bound)
– one adult toothbrush (individually factory sealed)
– one 4- 6 oz.  toothpaste
– one  3.2- 6 oz. bar of soap individually factory wrapped
– two rolls of candy (Lifesavers, Breathsavers, or Mentos only,)
– three (3)  first-class stamp embossed #10 envelopes (purchase at Post Office)
Please place all of these items in a one (1) gallon ziplock bag.

#PraySC

Join us on October 21, 2020, as we lift our voices together to petition the Lord for His mercy and grace on our state, nation, and world.

We recognize that our strength and understanding pales in comparison to the strength and understanding given to us through the Holy Spirit.  He is the One who can bring hope to the hopeless and peace in the chaos.  The healing of our nation is unattainable by our own efforts; it will only happen through a movement of God.  Join SC Baptists as we lift our voices to the One who can bring that change and healing during an election year and a Pandemic.

We will gather in the sanctuary at 10:00am, 2:00pm, and 6:00pm. Please choose a time that is convenient for you and pray with us. You can find a prayer guide at http://praysc.nabc.church.

Attendance Options

Starting Sunday, September 27 at 6:30 pm going through Wednesday night the 30th. Each service will be at 6:30 pm. Especially add this note. There will be a special live streaming in the gym for anyone who would like to worship with others who are wearing a mask and still practicing social distancing. Anyone who wants to come to the sanctuary has the privilege to wear or not to wear a mask but there will still be social distancing.

Starting this Sunday morning for our regular worship time, we are offering in the gym live streaming with two large TVs for all who want to be where everyone is wearing a mask and practicing social distancing.

There is a place for everyone who wants to come to church and share in worship and fellowship with your church family. Children’s worship is being offered for all our children from 3 years old to second graders.

Blessings and health to all of you!

Labor Day Picnic

Our normal Labor Day Picnic will be held here on the church on the lawn by the gym on September 6th at 9:30 am.  We are asking all our families to join us as we celebrate together, with social distancing and masks, this great time of fellowship.  Each family is to bring their own food, via a picnic basket, of anything they would like to eat and drink.  Since we can’t serve our families this year we won’t be able to provide anything but ice to the families that come. If you bring a container, then we will have ice on hand that you can get from the large chest that will be up close to the building.  There will be music from Kiley and the musical ensemble and we will sing old hymns together.  There will be a short message and we will possibly even have a baptism in the sanctuary.  Hopefully starting at 9:30 am we will be as cool as possible, and should last until around 11 am.  If the weather is bad we will have the service in the gym and other classrooms that might need to be used.  We ask that you park in the back section of the parking lot or we can do tail-gating throughout the parking facilities.  Don’t forget to bring a tent for your family if you desire.We look forward to seeing all of you and any guests you might bring as we worship the Lord and fellowship with our fellow believers.

Fall Revival

Join us for our Fall Revival September 27-30 with Dr. James Noble, Pastor of Mountain Springs Baptist Church and Anderson University Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion. Services will start each night at 6:30pm with music from Anderson University students and several choirs including ours. Worship will be led by our own Kiley Waldrop. Childcare will be provided each night.
