NOTICE: The church eBulletin is now being delivered to all members by email through a software program called MailChimp. You may still check our website for general announcements but our prayer list will only be found in the Bulletin in your email, to protect the privacy of members. If you are a member of the church and did not receive the email today, I may not have your correct email so please send it to me at Otherwise, check your spam folder and add “Grand Strand Church” to your accepted recipients.
I am excited to have this new way to deliver messages to you all which does not have to rely upon Google!  Jana

THANK YOU:  From Heather Graves:  “Thank you to our wonderful church family for all of your prayers for my family while we were down with the COVID. We are all out of quarantine and feeling somewhat better, finally!!!”

CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSONS:  If you attend Sunday worship at the church building with your children, please remember to pick up their lessons from the box in the foyer.

PLAYGROUND IMPROVEMENTS: Did you know our playground has been updated with new equipment and a border to contain the new rocks? Also new fencing has been installed. Our thanks to Crystal Lemmons for managing this project! 2019 came and went but we still want to “Get Younger”.

CHURCH PICNIC:  Our annual Beach Picnic in September has been cancelled due to COVID 19.


  • HFHC:  Our annual Christmas shoebox project for Hope for Haiti’s Children will be rolled out soon — be watching for more information.
  • COIN CANS:  Here are our plans for the “coin can” program this year for South-eastern Children’s Home:  Due to the pandemic, we are not going to disperse cans this year.  We are asking each person who desires to contribute to this important work to send in only cash or checks to the church or drop into the contribution boxes in the foyer.  Please mark on the envelope or “check memo line” that it is for the “coin can” program.  This will allow Crystal to track and keep separate from other donations.  Then we will forward  one check in October to SECH as we have done in the past.  In case you don’t know how much your change cans usually contained, the average amount of change in the cans ranged between $50 and $75.  Please prayerfully consider donating to this work, even though we don’t have the cans.  We have received word from the Home that so far everyone is healthy.  May God continue to bless these children and their staff.
