Encourage Lieber Inmates with Easter Cards

"Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison." -Hebrews 13:3

You will find the collection basket for your cards on Saturdays when you collect your Communion kit and Sunday in Walton Hall. Monday-Wednesday you can bring your cards to Guerry Hall. The last date for collection of the cards will be Sunday, March 21, 2021.

There are over 1000 inmates that we can reach with our cards. Please write a note sharing how much God loves them and desires a relationship with them.

Please remember that cards should have no attachments (such as ribbons or stickers), you should not sign your full name (please use either your first name or "a friend") and do not seal cards because they must be screened for security.
Thanks for helping us give hope to the inmates at Lieber. God bless you.
Contact Chrissy Binz, Debbie Hawkins, or Libby Puckette for more information

Altar Flowers

Flowers were given to the glory of God
St. John's Altar Flower Ministry designs new flower creations each week for Sunday services. Flowers are selected individually and prepared on Friday. The cost to dedicate flowers is $70 for two vases or $40 for one. Contact Sally Dixon (, 843-709-4894) to sign up for the Sunday of your choice.
The flower delivery guild needs volunteers to deliver flowers in accord with COVID protocols. If you have delivered flowers in the past, or would like to join that ministry, please contact Sally Dixon.

At St. John's


Sunday, Mar. 7
Heavenly Father, you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you: Look with compassion upon the heartfelt desires of your servants, and purify our disordered affections, that we may behold your eternal glory in the face of Christ Jesus; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

For Persecuted Churches

We pray for persecuted churches around the world. For the month of March we pray for the nation of China. Heavenly Father, Christians and Christian churches in China are suffering due to Communist and post-Communist oppression, agnosticism, authoritarian rule, and restrictions that limit Christian worship. We pray for the Christian churches in China to continue to grow despite all these persecutions. Enliven their spirits by the power of the Holy Spirit. Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.
