CHECK OUT THE LATEST ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM THE SC DISTRICT
All of our District Staff and Leaders have new email addresses. Please refer to the District Staff page for the new information. We will phase out old email accounts over the next few months, so we encourage everyone to add these new addresses to your contacts.
If you are reading this, then you know that we have launched our new SC District Website! We hope that this new avenue of communication and information is a help to our pastors, leaders and churches. There is much more to come after the initial launch, so we hope you will check back often as we make improvements and add to the site.
South Carolina District Church of the Nazarene has a new logo! Let the office know if you need a full digital file of the logo in black or white.
There is a new interactive District Calendar with Registration links for most of our events, as well as promotional images for your church to use in promoting these events.
Explore the website. If you find a broken link or a problem, email email@example.com and we'll look into it. There are many changes happening at one time, so I'm sure we've missed a few things. There are many more items coming, along with additional languages for the website, and special access for our Lead Pastors.
Thank you for your support and your patience as we continue to improve communication on the SC District!

By now, most of you are aware of the flooding in middle Tennessee. I have been in contact with several local Nazarene leaders and they say that there is presumably close to 30 dead or missing and countless amounts of damage due to the 17+ inches of rain that fell in a 24 hour period.Here is what I know:1. Camp Garner Creek, the Mid-South District Nazarene Campground has suffered severe damage. Many buildings are lost, lots of debris and damage and the clean up and recovery could take some time. They are in need of several things:
- Monetary donations that can be sent to:
Finley Knowles, Administrator
Camp Garner Creek
700 Sam Hollow Road
Dickson, TN. 37055- Work crews. I am attempting to put together a couple work teams to go and help with the recovery. They need chain saw work, tractors and tractor operators, people willing to drag and clear debris and anyone willing to help.
- If you are able to be a part of a work team the weeks of 30 August - 3 September and 6-10 September, please contact me at 706-373-1380.
Lodging will be provided at the camp and as of now, only lunch will be provided. Teams and members will have to arrange for breakfast and dinner on their own. This is due to a lack of a kitchen.2. Waverly Church of the Nazarene and the surrounding community were hit hard as well. The church received some 6 foot of water inside the buildings. The buildings are waiting to be inspected before any clean up or recovery can be done. In the mean time they have some urgent needs for the members of the church and the surrounding area. Those needs include:
- Bottled water
- Clorox wipes / cleaning supplies
- Monetary donations - see their website for donations @ www.wcntn.comYou can view photos of the devastation by accessing the Mid-South District Facebook page.IMPORTANT - I am presently looking for volunteers to go to Camp Garner Creek the weeks of 30 Aug - 3 Sep and 6-10 Sep 2021. If interested please contact me immediately @ 706-373-1380.Thank you in advance for all you do,
Rev. Wayne Cheselka - Director, SC District Disaster Relief
