When you donate or register for the challenge, you will be signed up to receive a weekly motivation written by people from the HSHC community (scripture verse, short reflection, and questions for contemplation) as well as health tips on each of the 5 Wednesdays in September leading up to our Miles for Ministry fundraiser weekend.
Join other church educators in the APCE SOAP Region (SC, GA, FL, and Puerto Rica) for "Outside the Walls," our 2021 Regional Event, scheduled for November 4 - 6, 2021, at Epworth By The Sea, St. Simon's Island, Georgia.

We are excited to welcome Reverend Aisha Brooks-Johnson as our keynote speaker and Eric Nanz will lead us in worship.
