SC Clarion

Weekly Staying Connected, Edition 1, July 25

From Majors Ruwethin

"The clarion was an loud, shrill instrument that signaled time to go into battle. A clarion call is such a call, but coming from the core of one's spirit to move out of complacency, procrastination, doubt, fear, and limitations to MOVE and CONQUER for the kingdom!"

At least this the definition that was found on the internet. But, what a powerful call for us especially during this time of transition from COVID as well as officer moves to move forward with the Lord. We pray that we'll walk together through fear and move forward for the kingdom of God.

We believe it to be true. We are already encouraged by the support and love that we have experienced in this short time. We have been hosted with food delivery, taken out to meals, food made and brought over, phone calls, conversations after church, and the list goes on.

What's also encouraging is that there were people involved in ministry before we got here and people have already offered to help with snacks, leading Sunday school for youth, stats, driving, women's programming ... and WE THANK YOU AHEAD OF TIME!!

We ask for your patience as we continue in conversations with you and hear your heart for ministry. We will start connecting the dots to help support you in this new season - getting back to each other after such a hard season will take some work - so we'll take time to pray for God's direction with you.

We hope you'll find this newsletter a great tool to keep up and share with other's what's happening. God's way is best and we thank Him for crossing our paths at this time!


Vacation Bible School will be held later on this year due to the WMI and WYI events.

Celebration Day - Registration is full. However, we pray we'll be able to enjoy camp as a church sometime soon.
