Greenwood District Responds to Call for Elder Baskets

The SC Conference put out a call for Elder Baskets for older Native Americans asking for 1 basket from each church in the SC Conference to be delivered to the Greenville Convention Center for the 2019 Annual Conference. The churches of the Greenwood District responded to the call, contributing over 100 baskets. This picture shows the baskets waiting to be loaded for transport to the Greenville Convention Center. Special thanks to Rev. Cheryl Remchuk, Rev. John Elmore, Rev. Mike Evans, and Ms Cathy Trevino, director of the Greenwood District Lay Servant Ministries for their help in preparing and loading these baskets for transport. Special thanks to St. Mark UMC, Greenwood, for the use of their Salkehatchie trailer in carrying these baskets to Conference.
