Greenville United Methodist is known as a church that prays. They are that and they rejoice at the answer to those prayers. Greenville Methodist is known as a church that reaches out to the community around them and that they do well also. Ministries, too many to list, touch and change hearts on a daily basis. Finally, their hearts are the core of the fellowship. Their hearts are pure, true and seeking the will of our God, whom they serve. They work in unity as one body and there is nothing Greenville Methodist cannot accomplish.
These scriptures come to mind whenever I think of this congregation for they may be small in number but they are mighty in deed and in God.
Matthew 25:33-40 says: He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in or needing clothes and clothe you? ‘When did we see you sick or in prison and when did we go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ “
How do I describe this fellowship at Greenville United Methodist Church in as few words as possible? I can do it in one sentence. Jesus is Lord of their lives and they serve Him through the community in which they live.
Come, join our community.
