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 always in the forefront of our thoughts and prayers.

Please consider donating canned beef, canned ham, canned chicken, canned salmon or hearty ready-to-go meals like beef stew and chili with meat.

Mission BackpackChrist Church Faith in Action is reaching out to help children in our community who often donít get enough to eat when they are home on weekends and school breaks with a program called Mission Backpack. Partnering with Loaves & Fishes, we purchase kid-friendly food, pack it in small bags to send home with children, and deliver the bags bi-weekly to Robert E. Cashion Elementary on Fork Shoals Road in Greenville. We also support Berea Middle School once a month with 50 family-sized portions of food that serve 25 entire families for two weekends. This program is a great chance to support the most needy children and makes a difference in our community! Help join our efforts to feed hungry children this school year. Volunteers are needed to shop, pack, and deliver. What a great way for your family, Bible study, Sunday School or small group to help, either once or in an ongoing capacity - the choice is yours.
Why are we doing this? Forty-nine percent of the children attending Greenville County schools are eligible for free or reduced price meals at school. This is more than 35,000 children in our community! School social workers will select those children who are most at risk for having nothing to eat at home on weekends and during school breaks. These children need our support and we will make a difference to them.
