Additionally, our “fellowship” is evident through participation in: 1) quarterly class socials; 2) numerous outreach/mission services such as Greenwood Pathway House (homeless), Epworth Childrens’ Home (orphanage), Soup Kitchen and Food Bank (hungry), Salvation Army (needy), Backpack Ministry (weekend meals for children), etc.; and 3) as a vital part of our entire church family, we “go, grow and glorify” God together.
