Announcements: Orphan Sunday, ARP Standards, Old Brick Church

Orphan Sunday

Once again it’s the time of year when we have the opportunity to educate our congregations about what our denomination is doing by way of orphan care! James 1:27 states, “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”

It is with joy that we invite you to join us in celebrating Orphan Sunday on November 12, 2023, by watching and sharing this video on the ministry the ARP Church has to orphans through the Dunlap Foundation.

“Jump In! is the perfect length for a Minute for Missions at church, to use as a conversation starter in Sunday School, or over a simple cup of coffee with friends. In a little over two minutes, it describes what the ARP is doing to walk beside orphans and how each of us can get involved with what God is doing on behalf of the vulnerable around the world.

God is at work, bringing redemption into the lives of the helpless, and He invites us to participate in what He is doing.

– Erin Ulerich

Old Brick Church Service

The Triennial Worship at the Old Brick Church (Hwy 213) will be held on Sunday, October 29th, 2023 at 3:00 pm. All are welcome to join!

The Old Brick Church, or more properly, the Ebenezer Associated Reformed Presbyterian Church (sometimes called the First Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church), had been established in 1770 in Fairfield County, South Carolina, near the town of Jenkinsville, South Carolina.  Scotch-Irish Presbyterian settlers had moved south from the Cumberland County of Pennsylvania to the area to establish their homes and families in the area.  On May 9, 1803, the church was the site of a gathering of ministers and church elders that resulted in the formation of the Associate Reformed Synod of the Carolinas. It is known as the “mother church” of the A.R.P. denomination.
