Every Neighbor Matters

February 28, 2016 Greer, SC

During the month of February, the Greer Congregation participated in a food drive for Greer Relief, a local community outreach ministry, based in Greer, South Carolina. The Executive Director of Greer Relief attended a Sunday service and following the service gave the congregation a presentation on the history and future of this important community ministry. Greer Relief was started in 1936 as a result of the Great Depression and has continued to provide emergency assistance to the hungry and homeless for the past 80 years. Their motto of "Every Neighbor Matters" is a beautiful parallel of Jesus' teaching to love our neighbor.

As a result of the congregation's donations, we were able to present the Executive Director with a wonderful assortment of food and paper products. Our congregation looks forward to future opportunities to help our neighbors.
