In large churches, you may get lost in the crowd. In small churches, making a big impact in your community seems impossible. Greenville UMC is the perfect size in between. We are small enough that everyone knows your name, and close relationships with your pastor and church family are possible. But we are also big enough for God to use us to transform our community, connected through our global denomination to reach the world in mission.
We don’t just talk about showing God’s love to the world, we live it! There are opportunities every week to use your gifts to serve. During the school year, we pack food bags every week for local elementary school students. We run a needs closet for students in middle and high school. We receive donations from Walmart Distribution that are given to other churches, local missions or thrift stores. Events like our Back-to-School Giveaway and Breakfast with Santa allow us to show God’s grace to our community. Regardless of your gifts, we can offer you a place to serve.
While discipleship classes decline in some churches, our Sunday school is alive and thriving. Every Sunday your whole family can learn to apply God’s Word to your lives and hear the faith stories of committed Christians. During worship, our preaching is designed to help people connect the Bible to their lives in a practical way, regardless of your level of Bible knowledge.
More than anything else, our church is like a loving family that cares for every member. Our family will come to your aid in a crisis, during times the rest of the world walks away. We inspire and challenge each other, and we walk through the highs and lows of life together.This is not a church to go to on Sunday, it is a family to belong to!
