Community Development

We are thankful for the following Partners who have partnered with us to provide resources and opportunities for God to build His Kingdom in our community!

Mill Community Ministries – Youth Employment

We are an ally partner with Mill Village Ministries to create job opportunities for neighborhood teenagers.  This summer is our second year sharing resources and employing teens.  We will be employing a Mill Village Teen as one of our Summer Camp workers.  We are extremely grateful for our partnership with Mill Village Ministries!

Greenville County Schools – Summer Camp

We are very thankful to Greenville County Schools for their partnership with our summer children’s programming.  GCS provides healthy, nutritious lunches for any child 18 and under who shows up to our church between 11am-12noon.  We provide programming, which includes fun & games, as well as math & reading practice.  Without the generosity of GCS, we could not afford to feed these children and teens.  We are very grateful for GCS!  Check out our Summer Camp Page!

SC District of the Wesleyan Church – Computer Lab & Immigrant Connection

Many pastors and individuals throughout the SC District (& the District itself) have supported our efforts to establish a Computer Lab and an Immigrant Legal Services Center.  The District and individuals have donated computers, run wires, given financial support, given technical support, translated documents, and helped with so many other tasks.  We are really looking forward to the fall of 2016 as we begin opening the doors to these two vital ministry opportunities.  We could not have done it without the support of the SC District of the Wesleyan Church and the individuals within it!
