Each year we pause to reflect on what has happened in the year just past and to look ahead to the year to come. We call it an Annual Meeting, something required for every congregation in the Book of Order. For several years, our Annual Meeting has taken place on the last Sunday in August. Because reflecting together, electing officers, and celebrating SPC is important for all, we plan a combined service of worship for that Sunday, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The Annual report for 2016-2017 will be available for this meeting and will be posted on this web site. Members will also receive a mailing presenting the nominees for the office of Ruling Elder, Deacon, and Trustee prior to the 27th. Changes in the terms of call for the pastor will also be presented. After the meeting, a "lemonade and cookies" time of fellowship will be held in the Chapter House in order to enjoy its "repristinated beauty."
2016 was the first year Seneca Presbyterian Church sponsored a charity golf tournament in order to raise funds for the Oconee Presbyterian Service Fund. It was held at the Oconee County Golf Club. Over 90 golfers participated and raised over $20,000. This year's tournament is scheduled for Friday, September 15, 2017 registration is at 8:00 a.m. and shotgun is at 9:00 a.m. For more information, contact the church office at 864-882-2505.
