One of Greenville’s longstanding community-wide events, United Ministries’ Transformation Walk brings together people from all walks of life to raise awareness about poverty in Greenville and those who are in need of a “hand-up” in order to move their lives in a positive direction. Beginning at Fluor Field, participants walk the three mile route that many people take when seeking assistance from valuable service agencies in downtown Greenville who are working to find solutions to poverty.

Proceeds from the walk benefit all of United Ministries’ life changing programs that equip vulnerable individuals to become independent and productive members of our community. The event provides funds for job skills training, adult education, financial stability programs, as well as emergency assistance. In addition, the Transformation Walk supports our Place of Hope, a homeless day shelter that not only offers basic services—a shower, restroom, socks, or a winter coat—but also provides case management through which the root causes of homelessness are discovered and addressed.

The Transformation Walk draws as many as 1,200 passionate individuals, families, congregations, youth groups, and business professionals from all across the Greenville Area. The Transformation Walk is a family-friendly event with entertainment for all ages. Participants form teams and work together to raise money for United Ministries’ valuable programs. - See more at: http://transformationwalk2015.kintera.org/faf/help/helpEventInfo.asp?ievent=1140000&lis=1&kntae1140000=6A9F2BFADA63416E998F50E5F163F1DE#sthash.cEbrB5TQ.dpuf

Theology on Tap

Good friends and new friends. Good discussion and new thoughts. And maybe a new brew to boot.  A group from First Christian is combining some of their interests and inviting others to join. 

This new discussion group will begin meeting at Southern Growl (located at 6 S Buncombe Rd, Greer ) on September 24 at 7:00pm.  Anyone can come, all are invited.  Indeed, the more the merrier: Christians, yes, but Agnostics, Buddhists, Jews, Sikhs, Muslims, atheists, just no Baptists (only kidding, Baptists can come too).

See Bryant or Kenny for invitation cards that you can share with your friends.  Discussion topics will cover anything pertaining to religion.  The only thing you need to bring is a healthy draught of respect for others’ opinions and maybe $4-6 for a pint.  

(They also allow you to bring food in).
