Welcome Our New Financial Administrator!

Marilyn Morrison, pictured right, was approved by Guiding Council as the person to be the Financial Administrator of New Harmony Presbytery upon the retirement of Elise Walker in May. 

Marilyn and her husband, Tim, recently moved to Florence from Chattanooga, Tennessee, as a result of his new job with Harbor Freight in Dillon as an Area Manager. They lived in Chattanooga for 20 years and were ready to move closer to the beach, which they both love to visit! Marilyn and Tim have two children; their daughter Stephanie is married, living in Greenville and their son Andrew remains in Chattanooga. When in Chattanooga, Marilyn was the Financial Administrator at Concord Baptist Church for the past six years. She enjoyed her job very much and was excited to see the job posting for our Financial Administrator. Both she and her husband are happy to be in Florence and Marilyn is thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the New Harmony Presbytery, serving it and its congregations! 

Elise has complete 30 years of service as the Financial Administrator of NHP. We will officially celebrate that dedication and service, give thanks and say goodbye to Elise at our Stated Meeting in First, Hartsville on May 22.

Program Council offering grants for
positive and inspiring programs
The Program Council off New Harmony Presbytery is here to partner with your congregation. We stand ready to assist churches with their needs and requests. In recent history, many of these have been centered on emergencies, maintenance problems, salary shortfalls and other items that disrupt the mission and ministry of our congregations. In 2019, we are planning to offer assistance in other ways also. The CDM encourages you to apply for grants to do positive and inspiring programs in your church or community. These grants will typically be $2,000.00 each but we will consider any and all requests.
