2017 Annual Meeting – One Day Missions Projects
How many lives could God touch in just One Day? Let’s find out together on November 7!
On November 7, South Carolina Baptists will be on mission, serving the city of Columbia in the name of Jesus. Volunteers will join local churches and ministries to support the work being done in their communities. You don’t have to be a messenger to the Annual Meeting to get involved in One Day!
We are asking that all volunteers check-in by 11:00am on November 7. At that time volunteers will receive a One Day armband, and each volunteer will be required to sign a release form. Lunch will be provided for all volunteers.
Around noon we will have a big send off. Volunteers will then pick up a lunch and travel to project sites. Please note that transportation to project sites will not be provided. Volunteers will serve on site from 1:30 – 4:00. That evening everyone will gather back at Shandon for an evening celebration as we hear testimonies of how God worked through One Day.
In addition to serving on a project site, you can participate by donating copy paper for local schools and/or backpacks for children in Appalachia. For information on how to fill a backpack go to http://www.scwmu.org/backpacks. There will be collection points at Shandon Baptist Church for these items.
