“Thus says the Lord, ‘Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor. Also do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place’.”
(Jeremiah 22:3)

It is not an option for us, as a church community, to ignore the plight of the stranger, the orphan, or the widow among us. God never intended for His people to marginalize the poor, the sick, and the needy, forcing them to seek relief from the government. He commanded the church to care for them. We are on a mission to fulfill His mandate. We care for the stranger (immigrants and refugees) through church-based relief organizations in South Carolina and our partnership with Envision Atlanta. We care for the widows and orphans (single mothers) by partnering with Lowcountry Pregnancy Center. We help the homeless through donations to Hope House in Summerville. We visit prison inmates. We care for people in crisis by volunteering at the American Red Cross.

Worship 5

Our mission is to end poverty, racism, homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, and ignorance. Will we win? Jesus said, “You always have the poor with you.” (Matthew 26:11) So, probably not. But we are working to make a difference.

“Join our mission to bring justice and righteousness to the least of these.”
(Matthew 25:40)
