CTR volunteers have been delivering meals, prepared by Meals on Wheels in Anderson,  to Pendleton area folks every Friday morning.  We are seeking a couple of more volunteers to join us by delivering to our route for one Friday a month, typically for two hours from 10 till noon.  Friendships are made as you deliver to the same homes each week and get to know our elderly neighbors. For more details, call Janet Masters at 864 640 6427.

Our newest Meals on Wheels CTR volunteers Ned and Barbara Simmons.


The planting of the New Earth garden will begin soon! This year you can reserve a section of the garden yourself. If you would like to reserve your own section to plant whatever you would like let Ansel (864-979-3010) know so he can keep space reserved for you. Whatever space is not reserved will be planted the same way it was last year. Let the growing begin!

CTR partners with REBUILD UPSTATE July 31st

Rebuild Upstate is a non-profit organization that repairs the homes of our low-income neighbors in Anderson, Greenville, Oconee and Pickens Counties to make them more livable, healthier and safer.  Projects might include handicap ramps, roof repairs or solving interior issues. It began as a group of Clemson University students traveling to help rebuild New Orleans post-Katrina in 2006, then became focused on helping homeowners in the Upstate in 2007. Since then, they have repaired over 900 homes using 7,000 volunteers.

CTR will have a work day to repair a Pendleton area home on Saturday, July 31 from 8:00-5:00.  We need 7-10 volunteers to work under the supervision of a project manager provided by Rebuild Upstate. If you are interested, please email Janet Masters at or text 864 640 6427.

greenville Street properties

greenville Street Properties

Several months ago the Church purchased two buildings further down Greenville Street. These buildings were purchased with blessing the community in mind. After lots of hard work from Ansel King and others these buildings are getting closer to being functional for our use. So the question on everyone’s mind is, “How will these buildings be used?” One of the buildings was a restaurant in the past and looks to become a coffee shop/restaurant again. This will be a place for people from all walks of life to gather and break bread or drink coffee. The other building was the former Greenville St. Grocery and it is only fitting that it should once again serve the community by meeting food needs. 

We are looking to partner with FoodShare SC to distribute food boxes. The Old Grocery will be the hub for packing and distributing food along with being a place for educating the community about nutrition and how best to use the produce. There will be opportunities for everyone to use their gifts to serve the community in these buildings and I look forward to seeing them up and running soon. If you are interested in learning more please don’t hesitate to reach out to Hunter either by phone (843-229-7160) or email (

Future CTR building


This month, your Building Committee met with our architectural partners, LS3P of Greenville, who have been working toward incorporating the ideas received through our congregational feedback meetings into a more tangible vision. Although many development questions remain unanswered, they presented a few broad-strokes recommendations for a master plan of our property to help us think through our options as we move forward. Over the coming weeks, we will continue to meet with LS3P refining our input into a master plan and concept design. Our current building fund balance is $108,847.
