St. Christopher’s Barrier Island Christian Homeschool Retreat

Holy Week Homeunnamedschool Retreat!
 
Do you have children? What are you and your children doing during Easter week (April 12th – 14th)?

Why not consider taking your family to St. Christopher’s Barrier Island Christian Homeschool Retreat. Whether you and your family homeschool, or whether you happen to have spring break that falls on that date, what better way to spend your time but to get your children a field trip experience like no other!

As a Christian Environmental Education Program, the Barrier Island Program offers biblically based hands-on learning of God’s creation, in God’s creation, in a way that is suitable for all ages. We will cover core biological concepts like design, niche, biodiversity, ecosystems, succession, and stewardship – all at age appropriate levels. In previous homeschool retreats, we have had multiple 5-9yr old, 10-13yr old, and 14-18yr old field groups. Of course, the more folks register for this event, the narrower our field group age ranges can be.

If you are interested in learning more about this program, or you are 100% convinced and want to sign up right away, please contact Teri Hiers (Office Administrator for Barrier Island) at barrierisland@stchristopher.org, or call 843-768-1337.

Cursillo Weekend #181

Cursillo Weekend #181

Cursillo is a movement of the church. Its purpose is to help those in the church understand their individual callings to be Christian Leaders. The leadership may be exercised in work situations, in the family and social life, in leisure activities, and within the Church environment. Leadership, in Cursillo, does not mean power over others, but influence on others; all of us need to be aware that we can exert a positive influence on those around us.

Please be in prayer for all participating in the Cursillo weekends. Pray that they will grow deeper in their relationship with Christ and in greater understanding of their own apostolic calling.  If interested in participating in Cursillo, please talk to your rector to learn more. If you're a Cursillista, stay active so that God's love can be demonstrated through you to other new Cursillistas.  Ultreya!

  • Background: St. Andrew’s Parish Church was established and built in 1706. After rice and indigo brought immense wealth in colonial days, the parish suffered through the nineteenth century. After the death of the Reverend John Grimké Drayton in 1891, the church was dormant for the next 57 years. After it reopened in 1948, the ladies of the church often spent all day cleaning and preparing the church for worship services. Since there were no restaurants nearby, they often brought their lunch and found themselves sharing it with tourists who stopped in to see the church on their way to the Ashley River plantations. This simple act evolved into the much-anticipated Annual Tea Room and Gift Shop. The church history is detailed in a new book by Paul Porwoll – Against All Odds: History of Saint Andrew’s Parish Church, Charleston, 1706-2013.
  • Story Ideas : Tea Room Popularity, Tea Room Recipes, St. Andrew’s Parish History, Anglican History
  • Available to Interview: Rector Marshall Huey, Author Paul Porwoll, Publicity Chairs Leigh Smalley and Margaret Gossett, Church Women President Mildred Strobel
