Lay Leader of the Year / Church of the Year
Each year ASC recognizes a lay church leader of the year, and a church of the year. This is one way we use to try and tell the story of what God is doing.
If you’d like to submit a church or lay leader, please fill out the following Google Form. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScgxtMCZEyLxRGncJ4JeBA1t6HkAPgsulGQgUUhUtA3P0JGgg/viewform?usp=sf_link
The Synod of South Atlantic supports smaller congregations in South Carolina as they continue to serve Presbyterians. One of these ways is with an annual grant from the Mary Hemphill fund for structural repair, replacement, renovation, and improvements to the church building. This $6000 grant application can be found on the Synod’s website under Grants, Hemphill Fund. The application deadline is December 31 each year, with awards given out at the annual Conference of ASC.
