2017 Santahatchie Christmas Project

2017 Santahatchie Christmas Project

Central United Methodist Church in Florence, South Carolina, held their 14th annual Santahatchie Christmas Mission Project on December 26-30, 2017. The Santahatchie Christmas Mission Project began in 2004 when a group of Central members felt the call to serve Jesus Christ by doing home repairs for those who could not afford to have them done otherwise. The project is modeled after the summer mission ministry, Salkehatchie. The day after Christmas each year, teenagers and college-aged participants from Florence, Columbia, and even New York, make camp in Central’s youth wing and spend the next four days making home repairs.
