Between June 21st and 25th Christ Church had 32 youth, 3 church staff, and 10 adult parishioners partnering with 9 Greenville organizations to learn about healthy relationships, food scarcity, homelessness, early literacy, and environmental stewardship. We partnered with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Harvest Hope Food Bank, Triune Mercy Center, The Salvation Army, Greenville Homeless Alliance (GHA), The city of Greenville’s “Let’s make Greenville... Cleanville” Campaign, Greenville First Steps, The Book Distribution Project of Christ Church, and Annie’s House of Sustaining Way.
We were so excited to be able to offer Mission Week for the first time, especially after a year of being apart. We learned so much about our community and each other along the way.
We are extremely thankful for our lay leaders and the passion and knowledge they brought about each of our daily topics and our community.
We also were excited to tie in some education about financial stewardship by donating all the money collected in the youth registration fees directly to the organizations we partnered with throughout the week!
The story was picked up by the City of Greenville and The Greenville News.
