Mercy Ministry

The Mercy Ministry Committee exists to steward the financial resources designated for helping those in need of assistance and to promote acts of mercy among our congregation.  Our first priority is to our members. It is our goal to confidentially consider every request made by or on behalf of our church members. Members are encouraged to make their request known by calling the Mercy Ministry office at 864-643-2605 or by sending an email to

After assisting our members, remaining resources are available to help those outside our congregation living in Clemson, Pendleton, and Central, whether it is by directly aiding those who come to us, or providing support to partners in the community that are directly providing services to those in need.

serving the city

We believe everyone experiences poverty due to the fall. Broken relationships with God, ourselves, our fellow man, and the systems of this world create poverty in our own lives and those around us. By being God’s people wherever we serve and fostering relationships, we believe we can be conduits for God’s redeeming grace to others.

widows ministry

Overseen by our deacons, The Widows Ministry seeks to honor widows and to see they are provided for. We support social activities to build relationships and enjoy each other’s company and give others practical support.

Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God... Psalm 68:5

prison ministry

Clemson Pres partners with Metanoia Prison Ministry to offer outreach, discipleship, and hope to the men at Perry Correctional Institute in Pelzer. Inmates are paired with a mentor who visits and encourages spiritual growth.

Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them... Hebrews 13:3 

vulnerable children

Our goal is to provide resources, support, and prayer for those on the
front lines of caring for vulnerable children. We spread a vision for adoption, foster care, and other means of caring for vulnerable children in our community including those still in the womb. We support and care for families in our church who have been called to adopt or provide foster care. We work with community partners to enlarge our reach and impact for the kingdom.

doers ministry

Doers are church members who seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus serving their brothers and sisters in Christ and the community through practical means. From yardwork at the church to giving rides to unclogging drains, the doers are here to get jobs done.

Be doers of the word and not hearers only. James 1:22

rey's market

Rey’s Market provides a Christmas shopping experience for families participating in Ripple of One. We provide an 8 week financial literacy course with Biblical guidance and support for those seeking to break the cycle of material poverty. Through Rey’s Market we get to know and build relationships with amazing families.
