Who we are as the church is demonstrated by what we do as the church!
2 cents a meal offering “Pennies for Hunger”
This special offering received each month is an example of how each person doing their part can really add up. During the month households put a container on their table and put in 2 cents per person each time they eat a meal. On the last Sunday of each month our children gather these offerings in tin buckets during Worship service. The pennies make a joyful noise as they are dropped into the buckets. Each child then pours the pennies from their bucket into a larger container…a visual picture of how we are all- young and old – called to God’s work.
Through June 30 of this year we have received $1,076 in our Pennies for Hunger offerings. Thanks everyone for your generous giving. Together we do make a difference!!
Presbyterian Disaster Relief
Nazareth Church actively responds to the needs of others in times of disaster. Our latest effort was the creation of hygiene kits to replenish supplies used following the earthquake in Haiti. Nazareth folk donated supplies to create over 677 kits. Nazareth also provided clean up buckets to be used in this relief effort as well.
Relay for Life & Nazareth Presbyterian Church
The Nazareth tent is the place to find Nazareth folk at Relay for Life events in Spartanburg. By purchasing luminaries, selling shirts, wrist bands and other items Nazareth partners with the community in celebrating the lives of people who have battled cancer, remembering loved ones lost, and fighting back against the disease.
