St. James Congregation Care Team

St. James Congregation Care Team

Over the past several months, Pastor Suzanne and I have been working on a congregational care program for Saint James UMC. Using the Lay Ministry Involvement Forms from 2016, we have compiled a list of interested people who desire to serve in a way that is beneficial to the care team.

To begin our program, we are providing a workshop on Saturday August 19th from 9:30 am to 1:30 PM at Saint James UMC. The workshop will be led by Jo Melton from Goose Creek UMC, an instructor for the Lay Servant Ministries. Other churches in the area have been invited to join the workshop as well. The agenda for the day will include helping team members own their passion and commitment to helping others, conducting care calls, setting up a team and protocols for churches, and much more.

A light lunch will be provided. If you are interested in joining this Ministry, please contact Bob Hartford at hartfojackiebob@gmail.com, or 843-718-0798 or You may also call the church office at 843-553-3117.
