Community sometimes extends beyond our immediate neighborhood. We desire to reach out to the people in our state and our nation, traveling throughout both to go to where the people are. Here are some statewide and nationwide ministries that we are involved with.
The Disaster Relief Office strives to train leaders, develop new teams, and lead in Christian discipleship and evangelism in the area of Disaster Relief as SC Baptists bring help, healing, and hope during local, state, national, and international disasters. More Info
Connie Maxwell Children’s Home
Children have a safe, secure, loving environment at Connie Maxwell. We are a home for some children who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected and some who have been placed by loving caregivers going through difficult situations. In addition to the main campus in Greenwood, Connie Maxwell Children’s Home provides residential care and family support through satellite locations in Chesterfield, Mauldin, Orangeburg and Florence. Each year more than 200 children of diverse needs and backgrounds call Connie Maxwell home. Some children stay as little as a few months, others for many years. Some arrive alone, others with siblings. Most are between the ages of six and eighteen. Children who remain through high school graduation receive financial support for college.
Food from the Heart
Richard Kester Memorial Food Drive
Once a year the church comes together to collect food for needy families in our community. Volunteers stand outside local grocery stores and distribute red bags and flyers explaining the food drive. 100 percent of all items will benefit men, women, and children here in the Midlands. The food is distributed through the Harvest Hope Food Bank and area food pantries and ministries. Watch for more information on the events section and in your LIFE Groups.
