March Love Offering: Operation Inasmuch
Operation Inasmuch is a national nonprofit that employs proven models to motivate, train, and equip churches to move more congregants out of the sanctuary seats and into the streets to serve the neediest in their communities. A day is selected each year in the SC Synod in the month of April on which to mobilize Lutherans around the state in completing projects that will serve the “least of these” around us. All love offering donations in March will go towards helping to finance the projects we undertake on that special workday. To find out more please see Pastor Jason.
