The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build. (Nehemiah 2:20)
The peace and grace of our Lord be with you.
Our Christian church was born two millenniums ago by the power of the Holy Spirit and the works of only 12 disciples and 70 Apostles. The work of the Holy Spirit continues with strength and the church of our Lord is still growing in all the continents of the world.
At St. Mary and St. Mina Coptic Orthodox Church of Fort Mill, South Carolina, we believe and trust that God who worked with and through the few resources in the past is the same God who is guiding our church today.
Our church congregation is growing through the work and power of the Holy Spirit. Today, we are asking for your help to fulfill God’s plans and to make our vision of building a new church that glorifies and witnesses to the Lord come true. We are confident that the Lord who always keeps His promises will use your donations however big or small to deliver His faithful promises for His children.
We now need the prayers, hope, and work of everyone to start building the main church on our available land, as well as to prepare the remaining land to be used for the youth, Sunday School, and family outdoor acitivites that bring the congregation together in the love and unity of Christ. We pray also to purchase a mini-bus to support the Sunday School service in the church.
May God bless your lives and accept your offering as he accepted the two mites of the widow who offered her whole livelihood
