Help Puerto Rico

Overwhelmed with what you have seen on the news this hurricane season? I have been to, but I have hope in God and opportunities to help!

Hit the Road and Encourage Your Child’s Teacher

We don’t need one more thing to do, but what if your family could be on mission without putting a specific event on your calendar? What? That doesn’t make sense? Sure it does! Look at the stories of Jesus in the Bible. Jesus most often just encountered people along the way – as He walked along the road. Our Rocky Creek children’s ministry wants to partner with parents as we begin to focus on missions as a lifestyle. Our “Music…

Connect with Indian Upstate Fellowship

At Rocky Creek, we believe that Jesus is building a multi-ethnic Church that will one day come together from all tribes, nations, and tongues.

Three Churches In One

Strengthening Churches “What a beautiful historic church!” That may be the first comment of a visitor to Charleston who sees Citadel Square Baptist Church. In 1854 the members of First Baptist Church saw the need for a church out on the edge of the city and planted Citadel Square on Meeting Street. No longer on the “edge” but in the heart of Charleston, the church has had a vital ministry for more than 160 years. Pastor David Walker leads this…

What Good Is A Dying Church Anyway?

STARTING: REPLANTING A CHURCH What happens when a church’s membership becomes too small? The people want to do great things for the Lord, but not enough money or hands are available to accomplish those worthy goals. This was the dilemma for Oak Grove Church in Spartanburg in 2015. They were down to 40 members, most of whom were senior adults. Finding themselves without a pastor, they called church planting strategist James Nugent to serve as interim. Not far away, Hub…

Tackling Poverty by Helping Children Read

SHARING: HEART4SCHOOLS Homelessness, poverty, imprisonment: these are big issues that affect people in South Carolina. How can these be eliminated? These big problems are often the result of a lack of education. If a child cannot read, he is at-risk to become a statistic as an adult. Research has shown, however, that getting a child on reading level by third grade is often an indication of success. South Carolina Baptist churches are reaching out to schools in their communities to…
