Corinth-St. Mark Project

Corinth-St. Mark Operation Inasmuch

  Ten years ago, members of Corinth-St. Mark’s Lutheran Parish in Saluda County joined Lutheran congregations across South Carolina in an annual day of service to benefit local communities.
  Corinth-St. Mark’s annual day of service – part of the national Operation Inasmuch – already has assisted more than 20 area organizations and individuals with funding from a yard sale, bake sale, and hamburger sale and service projects.
  This year, Operation Inasmuch will be held May 4 at the Hollywood Ruritan Building at the corner of the Denny Highway and Hollywood Road.
  The Parish holds a yard sale and bake sale (both 8 a.m.-1 p.m.) and sells hamburgers (10 a.m.-1 p.m.) to raise money that is donated to beneficiaries.
  In addition, a Bloodmobile will be on site (10 a.m.-1 p.m.).
  This year’s proceeds will be used to help two beneficiaries:
  •Provide a love gift for the Hall twins, premature daughters of Kelsey and Dakota Hall.
  •Purchase materials to make improvements to the Hollywood Elementary School grounds.
  Members of the Parish also are building storage shelving for Christ Central and collecting bottled water and Gatorade for the three area volunteer fire departments.
  Pastor Pam Turfa recalls: “A few weeks after I was called as pastor of this parish in March 2009, the bishop of the South Carolina Lutheran Synod asked me if the Corinth and St. Mark’s congregations were participating in Operation Inasmuch.”
  “No,” I replied. “But, his question got me to thinking about the possibilities for this Parish. And, although we did not have plans in 2009 to participate in Operation Inasmuch, by 2010 we did. We have participated every year since.”
  In the first nine years, the Parish has assisted the Hollywood Elementary School library with the purchase of new books, assisted the Burton Center with funding the cost of picnic tables for an outdoor shelter, contributed to the Saluda County library expansion project, and helped families with medical and financial needs.
  The Parish also has cleaned the yards of senior residents, repaired a roof for a single father, and purchased signs for area Community Watch groups.
  This year, a friend of the Parish has been offered the contents of a home that is being cleaned out for the yard sale. Our yard sale items include a couch, a recliner, headboards, kitchen cabinet drawers and doors, a glass-top square patio table, and clothing, household items, books, artwork, and children’s toys.
  The Operation Inasmuch name comes from the King James Version of Matthew 25:40: And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
  “We look forward to seeing our neighbors and friends at the yard sale and hamburger sale,” Pastor Turfa said. Anyone with questions, may call 803-381-1469.
