SCBMA believes in honoring the Biblical command to care for and honor our senior adults. Funds received through the Mother's Day Offering are used to provide lifelong housing and care for qualified retired pastors, missionaries, their spouses & other residents with charitable care needs who have faithfully served the Lord and have exhausted all funds for basic living expenses in retirement. God has used the generosity of His people to allow these senior adults to remain in our communities and receive the care that they need. Please prayerfully consider continuing this legacy through your gift.
Residents like Mrs. Laura Kirby joins us in thanking you for your gift. She is from Lake City, South Carolina. She and her husband, Gordon, lived in Moncks Corner where she was a restaurant manager. After he passed away over 21 years ago, Mrs. Laura moved several times. She never enjoyed living alone, so when she visited Bethea she saw how life is better at Bethea and felt like she wanted to be a part of our family. In 2014, she moved into one of our patio homes.
In the spring of 2021, because of a few health concerns, she and Queen Anne (the cutest puppy ever) moved onto our Concierge Living wing. Because her finances had dwindled over the years, Mrs. Laura now receives charitable care assistance. She told us recently she doesn’t know what she would do without Bethea, the Concierge Living wing, and or financial assistance.
