Join us for a Special Series of Wednesdays at First

Wednesdays at First programs through September and October will educate our congregation and guests about the four focus areas of the Faith Initiative to End Child Poverty: Early Childhood Readiness, Neighborhood Isolation, Generational Literacy, and Living Wage. If you're unable to join us, you can watch live at your convenience! Click here to access our Wednesday night videos.

Focus Groups are Meeting Now!

The Faith Summit on Child Poverty held in April was only the beginning of a long-term initiative in Spartanburg to end child poverty. If you would like to be involved moving forward and were not able to attend the Summit or to put your name on the follow-up list, please contact Caroline Goodman ( and ask to be added.

Four focus groups are meeting the third Thursday of each month at First Presbyterian Church Spartanburg, so you can choose your preference: Early Childhood Education/Childcare, Generational Literacy, Living Wage, and Neighborhood Isolation.

Read our commitment to eradicate child poverty, and show your support.
