Good afternoon Brothers and Sisters in Christ!
For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. - 2 Corinthians 5:1
It is with heavy hearts but joy that we announce the transition of our dear brother and former pastor, Charles Makins. Elder Makins, a leader among our clergy in the Church of God reformation movement has served in many various capacities across the state of South Carolina. His legacy of Bible knowledge, wisdom, and leadership shall not be forgotten. His desire to reach his eternal home in heaven is represented in his life and ministry. His earthly tent maybe dissolved, but we thank God for lending him to us for a season.
Please continue to pray for his family, church family, and friends during this time of bereavement.
All Brotherhood members in attendance, please wear your brotherhood pin in honor of our dear brother. Also, we the Brotherhood are requested to take part in service by singing. Please govern yourselves accordingly and be prepared to take part.
