Salkehatchie Summer Service Mission
Salkehatchie Summer Service is a pioneering servant ministry. Many of our neighbors in South Carolina live in homes that are in need of repair, and Jesus has called us to love our neighbor. This is an opportunity for all involved to experience Christian servanthood. ARUMC most often sends missionaries to the Salkehatchie Penn Center Camp at St. Helena Island. Salkehatchie Funds are raised through missions donations and after church service luncheons.
