Easter/Resurrection Sunday at Charleston Presbyterian

children 2preaching 4A new high attendance was reached for Easter Sunday at Charleston Presbyterian Church. There were many guests seeking the Lord and His living presence through the worship, word, music and the covenant members at CPC.

The children came forward for the young people’s, “What’s In the Bag?”  They were rewarded with the story of the resurrection of Jesus and Mary Magdalene’s role in sharing her witness of the risen Lord.  You can hear the audio message by clicking on the Sermons menu and finding the title, “Where Have They Taken My Lord?”  The children and some adults were also rewarded with fish-shaped chocolate and the name of Jesus written on each yummy piece.   We pray that everyone who attended Easter Sunday within every Christian church all over the world will return next Sunday!children 3crosschildren 1

Don’t we all look stylish with hair nets?
On early Saturday morning, March 5th, a team of members from Charleston Presbyterian Church traveled to Edisto Island to participate in the Haiti Under God (HUG) Pack-A-Thon.  We prepared bags of food, each weighing between 380-400 grams with 4 essential foods and nutrients in each bag.  This food will be shipped to Haiti and Kentucky, and 10% of the food is to remain on Edisto Island to help stock a food pantry.   We ended a little over 2 hours later with 28,560 meals in 119 boxes, which is almost 2,000 more meals than last year’s Pack-A Thon.20160305_103333  20160305_103034[1] The morning began with a stirring presentation and video on how the food is distributed and how valuable it is to children all over the world.  Many Haitian children are without basic needs and without a balanced diet, and there are some children right here in the United States that have similar needs.  But since we do not live by bread alone, every child is also fed with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ our Lord!20160305_103315 20160305_103151 20160305_10332920160305_103042
