Campus Stewards & Home Projects

Greenwich is blessed with dedicated volunteers as Campus Stewards, whose donations of time, skill, and energy help to offset some of our maintenance costs. We also do minor home maintenance, cleanup, groundskeeping, and repair projects for members of the community in need, when they cannot physically accomplish what is needed in their home. 

 


Prayer Team

The starting point for our mission efforts is acknowledging that God is in control. Every member of our church is called to turn our hearts and our minds toward the Lord in prayer. Check out our Prayer Page for prayer resources and information about our daily Zoom Prayer Team and Prayer Warrior Email List.


Blessing Bags

We prepare hundreds of gift bags each year for homeless men and women, victims of domestic abuse, and others in need.  Blessing bags are prepared by small groups from Greenwich and delivered by the Good News Community Kitchen.  The bags contain hygiene products, food gift cards, along with seasonal needs such as socks, hats, gloves and hand/toe warmers.  Each bag always holds a Gospel of John. Through this ministry we seek to be the hands of Jesus, putting His love into action. If you are interested in participating with us, see Diana, dianakv@verizon.net.
