Joining Christ at Work, Nearby in our community

Soup Kitchen 2 - Nazareth Presbyterian ChurchTime, energy, leadership, and giving are ways to join Christ in his work in this community. There are many opportunities for you to be in service as Nazareth. The last Sunday of each month join Nazareth Presbyterian Church members in serving other at the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen

Nazareth is a proud supporter of the Carpenter’s Table Community Outreach Center. The Carpenter’s Table provides food and other necessities to hundred of families every month. Located next to Tyger River Presbyterian Church, The Carpenter’s Table is always in need of items for distribution and volunteers. We need non-perishable food items, such as canned meats, vegetables, soups, spaghetti sauce, fruits, cereals, dried beans, rice, macaroni and cheese, etc. We also need donations of toilet paper, paper towels, soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, or other personal care items. All donations can be placed in the Missions Room. Volunteers are also greatly needed. If Saturdays aren’t good for you, shoppers are needed who can purchase certain food items and then take them to The Carpenter’s Table before Thursday so they can be bagged for the weekend. Since we are currently feeding more than 150 families every Saturday, we need people to help distribute and carry items to cars. Anyone over the age of 12 is welcome to come help. We work every 2nd Saturday of the month. If you have any questions about donations or volunteering, please call Kim Kotecha at 809-5991.

Nazareth is a long time supporter of the wonderful work of Thornwell Home for Children in Clinton, South Carolina.

2 cents a meal offering “Pennies for Hunger”

Other Outreach - Pennies for Hunger - Nazareth Presbyterian Church PhotoThis 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.

Thanks everyone for your generous giving. Together we do make a difference.

Supporting our friends in Agua Prieta during Fellowship Time

You are invited to Nazareth Sunday mornings from 9:00am -9:30am for our Fellowship Time prior to Sunday School. Various groups at Nazareth take turns ministering to others by providing food during this wonderful time of conversation and fellowship with each other. We’d love to see you next Sunday!

Coffee Generic - Nazareth Presbyterian Church PhotoOne of the special things we do during Fellowship Time is to use Just Coffee products in support of our friends in Agua Prieta. Pure, organic, grown and packaged in Mexico, Just Coffee helps to provide Mexican coffee growers the opportunity to earn a living wage while being able to remain on their family farm land in their homeland. The small things we do in this world can make a difference in the lives of others
