Sharing Jesus with Greenville, SC
It is our desire at SPC both to know Jesus and to make him known. In addition to our worship and ministries at St. Paul's, we are blessed to be able to be a part of a number of outreach ministries in our community. Some of these we parter with other organizations and some are right from our own church family. If you would like to learn more about any of these ministries, please contact us and we would be happy to get you any information we can and connect you with the people leading each ministry.
Founded in 1981, Project Host serves the Greenville area by offering a balanced, nutritious meal each day in a safe, clean and caring environment to all who are hungry.
In addition to the soup kitchen at the the CC Pearce Culinary School at Project Host teaches unemployed and underemployed people the skills and knowledge needed to get a job in the food industry so they can become more financially stable.
serenity place (at the family effect)
Our 'Battle Buddies' ministry is based on 2 Chronicles 20:15b, "This is what the Lord says to you: 'Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's.'" Led by Jen Harding, this ministry team meets with mothers at Serenity Place from 4:00 - 5:00pm on the third Tuesday of each month. If you would like to serve, or have any questions, contact Jen by e-mail at email@example.com. (If you you would like to be part of this ministry but are unable to join us at our monthly meeting time, you can still be an intercessor with our team.)
Rebuild Upstate strengthens the Upstate community by providing volunteers and materials to create safe, healthy, sustainable home environments for disabled, low-income and elderly people. Unlike organizations that focus on new home construction, they exclusively repair and improve existing homes. In this way, they allow these individuals and families to maintain their dignity.
Both adults and students have joined with Rebuild Upstate to help with various projects like building ramps for those who need wheelchair access.
souper bowl of caring
Each year in early February, we celebrate Super Bowl Sunday together as a church family by enjoying a soup lunch with each other and collect donations for a ministry here in Greenville. Over the past few years we have seen thousands of dollars raised for ministries like Serenity Place.
Simple Suppers is a meal ministry created and run by members of St. Paul's for those in our church family who are sick or suffering or could just use some encouragement and love.
If you are interested in learning more about Simple Suppers or if you would like to provide meals, please contact Karen Sherman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
