Community Missions responds to physical needs in the community by providing access ramps and performing a wide variety of home repairs. This is a year around mission, as needs arise, which provides opportunities for congregational support. This mission allows volunteers to share God’ Love with hands on involvement helping His people in need.

Habitat for Humanity
Earle Street Baptist Church is privileged to partner with Habitat for Humanity, a faith-based organization dedicated to providing a “hands-up” for individual families willing to prepare for and build an affordable home. Earle Street has partnered with many of these families, participating with other churches in an annual “Faith Build” to provide the financial resources and volunteers for the build. Participating churches are invited to provide "labor" on a scheduled basis for the approximate 18 workdays.

Once a year (usually in the Spring), we have a one-day community missions blitz called “Operation Inasmuch” when we try to get as many people as possible (preschoolers, children, youth, and adults) to be involved in some kind of local mission work.
Operation Inasmuch (OIAM) is described as a “national movement of compassion.” Churches all across America send out teams to do community mission projects on a single day. It is a great opportunity to show God’s love to our neighbors through compassionate service.

Pendleton Place offers programs that protect, equip, and heal vulnerable children, young adults, and families. Earle Street financially supports Pendleton Place, but our service as volunteers can be another valuable component of support for families in crisis. There are many opportunities for volunteers…from mentoring young adults, to leading craft classes, to washing windows, and so much more. Please go to the website pendletonplace.org where you can learn more about the good work of this organization. I look forward to strengthening our partnership with Pendleton Place as we begin anew an outreach of volunteer service from Earle Street church.
Depending on an individual’s volunteer involvement, a background check may be required.

United Ministries serves and empowers those on the transformative journey to self-sufficiency. Their vision is a community working together to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to thrive in Greenville. They offer adult education, crisis assistance and homeless services to those in need in our community.
Earle Street is in the early stages of establishing a more extensive partnership with United Ministries as we hope to become a partner in their Interfaith Hospitality Network which provides emergency shelter while allowing families with children to stay together as they experience homelessness.
