People of faith working in community to be a catalyst and conduit for ministry.
The Faith in Action Ministries are designed to help members and visitors to put their faith into action through a variety of opportunities, offered to help engage individuals and groups through service to each other and the larger community. Faith in Action's Impact Ministries offer a wide range of routine and accessible service opportunities. These opportunities for individuals and families help us keep loving engagement with our neighbors. Christ Church encourages involvement in the Sterling Community, a historic African-American community on the west side of Greenville, particularly with community activities, education, tutoring and farming. Christ Church has also been involved in the village of Cange, Haiti for over 35 years and has helped build a school, hospital and water system, with continued support of the vocational school and 100 acre farm.In addition to the keystone ministries listed above, Faith in Action is charged with the annual allocation of over $250,000 to supportPartners in the community and develop new projects in Greenville that will help to address current unmet need of the community.
