SOUTHERN METHODIST COLLEGE
Happy New Year!
Southern Methodist College began in Greenville, South Carolina, on January 26, 1956. This month we conclude sixty-two years of training men and women for Christian life and service. Our success cannot be measured solely in terms of our approximate 1300 graduates, but also in all the students who have taken courses from us over the years.
We are teaching Scriptural Christianity over the world through internet delivery. We are expanding our student base and our donor base. We are making major improvements to our campus facilities. We have reduced our expenses and could possibly pay off our debt this year.
We remain committed to biblical authority, historic Methodist doctrine, and counter-cultural living.
Richard Watson preached from Ecclesiastes 11:2 that, according to ancient custom, we should give seven or eight portions from the feast God has provided us. Our natural tendency is to start out pledging seven, but upon deliberation decide to play it safe and make it six or less. We should not concern ourselves with whether we are doing too much. Our concern should be, are we doing all we can for the kingdom of God?
We closed 2017 with all bills paid. As we begin a new year, please hold us up in prayer and keep on supporting our students. In the words of Wesley, “the best is yet to be!” I hope to see you at our Annual Fellowship Dinner on February 19th.
