We are working in many ways to help groups network together with the Synod. Currently, these are the Chaplain’s Network, the Association of Smaller Congregations, and 1001 Worshiping Communities.
At the Annual Conference of the Association of Smaller Congregations in May, 2015, Rev. Dr. Heahwan Rim, Synod Executive, presented Mary Hemphill Fund awards to four congregations in South Carolina. These grants will help repair their churches, enabling them to continue their ministry to the community.
