Ministries - 1 John 3:17

If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? - 1 John 3:17

Week after week God shows up on Monday nights in a little parking lot in downton Greenville. He shows up in the hands of men and women who bring and server food, who help distribute blankets and clothes, socks, hats and gloves. He shows up in the hearts of those who visit and fellowship with our downton friends. He shows up in the voices of those who share the word and pray & minister with others!

The 1 John 3:17 Ministry was started in 2007 by Doug and Karen Blackburn to meet the physical and spiritual needs of our homeless or less fortunate friends in downtown Greenville. We meet each Monday night at 6:0PM in the parking lot of David Street Baptist Church - located at the corner of David and Stall Streets. We server anywhere from 30 - 125 each week (depending on the weather).

We have been blessed to have five dedicated churches commit to a week a month to prepare and serve a meal and share Gods' word. Actively participateng are Cumminuty Bible Church (Easley), Grace Baptist Church (Taylors), Southside Baptist (Piedmont), Daventon Baptist Church (Pelzer) and Hillsid Baptist (Fountain Inn).

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone for doing the work that God has given you to do.
