North Augusta, South Carolina
From the Pastor’s Desk .....
As we pen this documentary for the month of August, which is the month we set aside some one hundred and fifty four years ago to recognize and celebrate the founding and establishing of one of God’s greatest churches in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA), we are compassed about with a theme entitled, “The Church that makes an impact.”
Now! Before we go head-long into this theme, we must first have and hold the spiritual definition of impact. From the secular standpoint, impact can be the act of one body, object and etc, striking another; a collision or the impression made by an idea.
From the spiritual or biblical perspective, impact is a strong positive effect. With that definition in mind, we can proudly say that the church that makes an impact is one that brings about a strong positive effect.
I firmly believe that any one who has been around First Providence any time at all can truthfully and unapologetically say that it imparts a strong positive effect upon this community as well as our nation.
Yes we, here at First Providence, have been a strong positive effect for 154 years in this community as well as our nation. And guess what? By God’s grace and mercy we will continue to do so because we stand firmly on the promises of God.
