  • Description: The mission of the Agape Ministry is to be a community outreach for our church, which is how it started. However, since our beginning, we have served clients as far south as Hephzibah, as far north as North Augusta, South Carolina and as far west as Columbia County. From our church members and friends of Belle-Terrace Church and a few of the local stores in our community and surrounding communities, we have received donations of food, store gift certificates, clothing, appliances, toys, school supplies and furniture. We are very grateful to you for helping us to keep this project going and we pray that you will continue with your donations of clothing, food, etc. We do appreciate you and offer a very hearty thank you for your support. On a regular basis, we send clothes to Haiti, we take clothes and bread to Freeman Personal Care Home, Daisy Vincent Personal Care Home and clothes and blankets to the homeless. We have also participated in the preparation of hot meals and delivered food to the homeless. However, our primary concern is to ensure that our local clients are properly supported from our pantry with food, clothing, toys, school supplies and furniture. One of our pet projects is the giving of Thanksgiving Baskets. We have given from 30 to 52 Thanksgiving baskets every year in addition to the number of clients we serve monthly. These baskets contain enough food for a family of four or more. The baskets are stuffed with a 10+ pound turkey, several cans of vegetables and fruit, dry beans, two starches (i.e. macaroni & Cheese, instant mashed potatoes, etc.), a desert, dressing mix, gravy mix and when it is available we also give fresh produce (vegetables and fruits). Distributes clothing and food every Tuesday to people in the community. Hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
