WARM

Weatherization and Repair MinistryWeatherization And Repair Ministry (WARM) is a project very near and dear to the heart of Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church. In response to the 1989 ravaging of the area by Hurricane Hugo, the church launched a project to help repair the damage caused by the storm. The project was spurred on by the Youth of Lyttleton Street UMC at the time. The project continued on for four years when it was finally named WARM, and the focus shifted from hurricane damage to weatherization.

Warm Includes Roof RepairIn 2001, the church envisioned an even larger program to make a larger impact on the area, and Lyttleton Street UMC partnered with three local United Methodist churches to bring this vision into reality. Each church contributed workers and St. John’s UMC, located in Lugoff, SC, provided lunch. The expansion was a success as 15 homes were repaired in just two days.

 

WARM continued to grow through 2002 and 2003, and totaled six area churches. Additional churches have since joined the effort, and WARM continues to be a success as it also continues to grow.

In 2015, we celebrated 25 years of service through Wateree Salkehatchie!
