2018 Report
It has been the stated purpose of the Evangelism Team to report its duty as the team who “welcomes and informs the community about worship services, mission activities and fellowship events with the assistance of the council and guidance from the pastor. Examples of evangelism ministries include:

  • Providing visitor hospitality
  • Sending welcome letters to newcomers in the Cayce and West Columbia area
  • Providing new member mentoring
  • Sustaining the community lunch program
  • Coordinating health screening

As is typical in a parish our size, most of these ministries are self-promoted and performed with no formal involvement of the Evangelism team. This is not a slight to the team, but an acknowledgment of the way the congregation truly operates. In 2017, Isma Boland replaced Sue Drafts over the leadership of the Community Lunch Program. Bill Hill coordinated the Health Screening with Lexington Medical Center. Linda Griffith organized another Community Shred Day including the help of the Youth. The worship team stopped quarterly healing services.  Gail Marcum led a wildly successful Trunk or Treat ministry for the first time this year with over 80 attendees coming by.    Mark Satterwhite and I worked on a flyer invite that was mailed to more than >1500 of homes in West Columbia inviting neighbors to our first combined Welcome/Homecoming Celebration, the Trunk or Treat celebration, the Community Thanksgiving service and our own Christmas Eve Service.  

No progress concerning an electronic sign. Jason Powell continued faithfully and excellently as the creator and installer of our current signage.
