The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Choirs of James Island present "We Shall Overcome" arranged by Horace Scruggs.

Although there will be no live concert this year, we are blessed to post this virtual anthem. 

The Operations Team of Hands of Christ, not knowing what conditions will be like in late July/early August and trying to balance the great need that will exist with the health and safety of our volunteers,  decided in May to suspend the normal 2020 distribution.  Provided that schools reopen in the fall, we will instead work towards, with the help of our member congregations, a targeted distribution to individual schools.  With the supply chain broken, we are fortunate to have a carry-over inventory from last year that would enable us to assist ~ 2000 children. 

We grieve at the loss of the face-to-face contact we have with each child, of the chance to show them Christ’s hands in action, and to share his love in person. We also grieve of not being able to do that work with our member congregations and in their facilities. We are so very appreciative of the congregations of Charleston Atlantic Presbytery that have supported us over the years. Today, with this video, we are most appreciative of our James Island congregations: Harbor View, James Island, and St. James.  Enjoy!
Your financial contribution will help us round out our in-hand stock for this year and give us a head start on next year.   We pray that we can return to our normal distribution in 2021.
