The Great Commission given by Christ and recorded in the Gospel of Matthew is a charge to go into all the world and tell the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Beginning on our church property we have two buildings that are used to help house local ministries and non-profit organizations such as: SPIHN (homeless ministry to families), Boy Scout Troop 11 and Pack 11, SCBEST (School Time Bible Classes), the Boys & Girls Club of the Upstate, and The Alzheimer's Association.

Our adult, youth, and music ministries sponsor mission trip experiences each year.
