50th Anniversary Homecoming Weekend

St. Andrew By-The-Sea United Methodist Church is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year.  One of our many special events is a Homecoming Celebration to be held the weekend of June 30 and July 1, 2018.  We would love to have as many members as possible who were part of creating this wonderful legacy come back to help us celebrate.

A “Welcome Home” barbeque will be held at Honey Horn Plantation on Saturday, June 30 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., and to share in fellowship with other members and friends of the church this significant milestone of delivering Christ’s message to the local community, the state of South Carolina, and even the world.

The barbeque will be followed by worship services on Sunday, July 1 at 10:00 a.m. (one worship service only) in the sanctuary at Pope Avenue and at 10:30 a.m. at 39 Persimmon Street in Bluffton commemorating 50 years of Christian service.
