Community Involvement Opportunities


Spartanburg School District One is helping children in a different way this year. Our church has been asked to provide clothes only for children, ages 1 – 10. There are shopping lists with sizes available in the cross hall if you or your Sunday school class would like to take a list. All clothes should be brought back to the church unwrapped no later than Wednesday, December 5. See Wanda Fine if any questions.


Our ‘We Care Food Ministry’ is collecting gently used coats for men and women to be used at the Spartanburg Miracle Hill Mission. If you have some you would like to donate, please bring them no later than Sunday, November 25 and they will be taken to the shelter. Thank you!


Released Time will have a fundraiser at Bojangles in Inman on Tuesday, November 20, from 5:00 – 8:00 pm.
