To all who are weary and need rest, to all who mourn and need
comfort, to all who are lonely and need friendship,
to all who are glad and would serve their neighbors,
to all who are complacent and need disturbing,
to all who sin and need a Savior, this church opens wide
its doors in the name of Christ, and bids you welcome!
We are located in historic Beaufort, South Carolina at the corner
of North and Church Streets.

Christmas Pageant: “Angels on Assignment” & Chili Cook-Off
Join us for the “Angels on Assignment” Christmas Pageant – a no rehearsal, come-as-you-are Christmas play for everyone! Just show up and parts will be given to anyone who volunteers (or just sit back and enjoy!). If someone in your family wants to sing a solo or have a large speaking role, please contact Whitney McDaniel at 263-1902 or email@example.com.
Following the pageant, we will enjoy a casual Chili Cook-Off dinner prepared by the best chefs in our congregation. Dinner will include 12 varieties of chili, salad, homemade cornbread and Donna Sheetz’ famous and oh-so-fabulous cupcakes to celebrate Jesus’ birthday! During dinner, the Youth Group will be our wait staff and some of our own chili enthusiasts will judge the pots. Donations for this dinner will be accepted on behalf of our Youth Group for their upcoming ski trip at the Montreat Conference Center. During dinner, you can also participate in a lively Bake Sale Auction – to include desserts or yummy breakfast breads you can buy and take home for your Christmas family gatherings.
If you want to bring your famous (or not so famous!) chili, please contact Sissy Perryman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
