Please prayerfully consider your gift of support to the mission of Thornwell in Clinton, SC.
This home for children was began in 1875 by a Presbyterian minister to care of the orphans from the Civil War.
Today, Thornwell still cares for the “least of these” - abused, neglected, and abandoned children – while providing innovative ministries to strengthen families throughout Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.”
Thornwell’s theme this fall is “Serving Jesus by Serving Others.”

The Palliative Care Ministry at Rock was started in January, 2017. Though this ministry, many individuals have already benefitted. Sue Ohler and Connie Dailey, daughters of Mrs. Arnetta McClelland said the following: “The Palliative Care Program was a great source of comfort to us during our Mom’s last weeks” -- “always willing to answer questions, kept in contact with us to check on our needs and visited Mom to comfort her. We are grateful for this program”. If you or someone you know in our church might benefit by this ministry, please contact Pastor Chris, Pastor Debby, the church office, or any one on the Palliative Care Ministry Team. We are here for you just as we have been for Sue and Connie.
Greetings fellow worshipers, The Worship Ministry Team is involved in creating a worship service that gives thanks and praises to the Lord our God. We do this by prayerfully planning creative and innovative worship services while looking for meaningful ways to enhance the worship service. Our team is co-chaired by Lynn Johnson and Pam Floyd and a thank you to Mary Ann Edwards who will be serving alongside us. There are also other opportunities for you to serve in our worship services - Perhaps you would like to contribute to flowers in the sanctuary for worship service or sign up to be an usher. If you have a creative side, you may want to help with decorating the sanctuary for special seasons and services. Communion services also require a few extra hands from scheduling to preparation. We, at Rock, are also blessed to have a wonderful choir and a great praise team. We are also blessed to have so many of you who through your generous contributions enabled us to purchase the organ, enhance the lighting, Advent stand, and Christmas tree. Thank you! If music is one of your talents and you would like to participate, please see Leigh Gambrell or Kenny Price and let them know. Worship Ministry Team: Co-chairs – Lynn Johnson, Pam Floyd, Mary Ann Edwards, Leigh Gambrell, Kenny Price, Lisa Grant, Pat Poole, Mary Anna Gerrard, Marie Miller, Linda Kellam, Debbie Dill, Louise Watkins, Anne Nunamaker, Janet Murphy, Glenn Miller. We meet the 2nd Tuesday each month at 6:30 p.m. in the sanctuary. Come join us!
Will You Join Us in Prayer for Our Affected Brothers???
In the past twelve months, our involvement at McCormick Correctional Institution has been negatively impacted by the extreme staffing shortage. While we should have been able to worship with our brothers there on three or four occasions in 2016, we were only provided with an opportunity to do so once. Now, with 2017 a month in the books, the Chaplain is still unable to book churches to come in and worship with the men due to the ongoing officer shortage. This means that our brothers in Christ at McCormick are not being afforded the opportunity to worship the Lord together in the new chapel. Will you pray? Pray often for the staffing situation, that it may return to the necessary numbers needed to allow us the opportunity to once again join them in worship. Will you also pray fervently and without ceasing for our dear brothers in Christ at McCormick, that the Lord may care for them, in this “exile” moment? Pray for the men of the county jail, and Bill Mitchell and Van Taylor and others who share the gospel with them.
