The world premiere of South Carolina Ballet Company’s Emanuel: Love Is the Answer is Saturday, April 1, at 7:30 pm at the Sottile Theatre downtown.

Come join us at the church on Saturday, April 8, from 8:30 - 12:00 for our Spring Work Day. The whole family is invited to help us spruce up the church inside and out.
We are kicking off Holy Week with a church family potluck on Palm Sunday (April 9) after the 11:15 service. Immediately after this service, we will set up round tables in the sanctuary and enjoy a time of good food and fellowship. We ask that you sign up to let us know the food you’ll be bringing (salad, vegetable, dessert, or drinks) on the sign-up sheets that will be circulating during the next few weeks.You’ll drop your food off in the Education Building hallway, where the serving will take place, and fun will be had by all. If you are a regular attendee at the early service, we would love to have you volunteer to help keep the food hot or cold during the late service. For questions or to volunteer, please call or email Nancy McWhorter or Pam Carroll.
Mark your calendars for our Children's Easter Egg Hunt, which will be part of our Wednesday evening fellowship on April 5.

Please help us get ready for our egg hunt by bringing in plastic eggs with a small treat inside (please no chocolate or nuts). You can drop these off with Woody by March 29th.

Stop Hunger Now is a volunteer-based initiative that coordinates the assembly line packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, and 23 essential vitamins and minerals. These meals cost only $0.29 for each package (which feeds a family of 4). Our goal is to have between 60-100 volunteers to package over 10,000 meals in about 2 hours.
Recent meals were delivered to Haiti, South Sudan, Philippines, and even Lumberton, NC after hurricane Matthew.
Providence is hosting this meal packing event on Saturday, March 25, from 8:00 am to about 10:30 am. Please click here to register or make a donation.
Salt Shakers is a wonderful time to gather in various homes for dinner and fellowship and to meet the people of Providence. We usually have groups of 8 adults (couples or singles) gather at different homes for dinner, with the host providing the meat. The others bring the rest of the meal (appetizer, veggie, salad, bread, and dessert). In addition to our adult groups, we will have a group for adults with children. Mark your calendar for our upcoming dinners - March 18 and March 25! Please contact Susan Christie if you would be interested in participating.
