Congregational Development: Application for Funds

Congregational Development is a ministry of the South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church seeking to reach more people and new places with the good news of Jesus for the transformation of the world.

In the Anderson District we are a community of God’s people on a sacred journey together. The District Committee for Congregational Development seeks to come alongside and resource churches in the Anderson District for growth. The most prominent way we do this is through grants from the District Twenty Percent Funds which may be awarded to any church desiring to begin or continue an initiative which leads to increased involvement in ministries, growing financial strength, and/or expanding ministry offerings.

How Can We All Get Along?

How can we register?

Register online at this link or contact Cathy Joens at cljoens@umcsc.org or (864) 940-1893.

Who is invited?

Each pastor is encouraged to bring 5 people with them to this event. All are invited to gather around the table for an honest conversation on race, so feel free to invite friends and family as well!

What is the purpose?

We hope to open our hearts and minds as we receive and share personal experiences around race. We realize these conversations can be challenging but believe they are vital as we walk down the long road of healing. As we share, discuss, worship, and feast around the tables, we expect to encounter God in our conversations and one another.

When and where is the event?

How Can We All Get Along? will meet in the Saint Mark Center at Saint Mark UMC on Sunday, April 30 from 4-6PM with dinner to follow. Saint Mark UMC is located at 616 Quincy Road, Seneca, SC 29678.
