Holy Eucharist at Barnwell's Nursing Home Every other Wednesday at 10:30am.
Jeremiah 18, v. 1-6, the Lord tells Jeremiah: "Go down to the potter’s house and I will give you my message. So, I went down to the potter’s house and there he was working at his wheel. And the vessel he was making of clay was marred in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do. Then the word of the Lord came to me: “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? Says the Lord. Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand.”
The Jeremiah 18 Pottery Project at Allendale Correctional Institute
The Jeremiah 18 Pottery Project at Allendale Correctional InstituteThe goal of this program is to provide one more resource in the Character Training Program that is designed to break the ‘prison culture’ and change inmates who, upon release, will be productive and successful members of their communities.
This is a ‘ground-breaking’ program that is being artist led by a volunteer Master Potter and teacher, Elizabeth Ringus. A curriculum that encompasses math, science, social studies within the discipline of pottery making will make a 4 month apprenticeship program per cycle. In order for this program to become self-sustaining, materials and equipment require funding.

Monies collected have been given in the past to Hebron Grace Home, a residential Christian ministry for women struggling with addictions. This year monies will be given to The Church on the Move, a ministry to our Hispanic brothers and sisters living in the low country. The Rev. David Dubay, Rector of Holy Trinity, Charleston, brings the Church and Christian fellowship to our Hispanic neighbors. The Church on the Move really is a church on the move with chairs, tables, guitars, orders of service, music books and food transported in a trailer.
