You don’t have to dress up. You don’t have to make up. Just show up!
This ministry consists of member volunteers making burial gowns, buntings, cocoons, blankets, and various other items for babies that do not leave the hospital due to fetal demise, stillbirth, or other complications.
All gowns are made from donated materials and wedding gowns and are free to the recipients.
We are reaching out to a few community sponsors to help with the cost as well. If you are willing to donate a wedding gown, lace, thread, white fleece, or various other items we will be thrilled to review for use in this ministry.
The items are distributed to Thomas McAfee Funeral Home, Bon Secours and Prisma Healthcare.
If a monetary donation is given, please submit it to Providence Presbyterian Church (link below) and designate for the Angel Ministry. We thank all who have helped to get this ministry underway.

Sharing God’s love through music

Some members of this group join First Baptist Easley for Ukulele lessons and join in playing around local retirement communities and centers throughout the year.

Family of Chickens
To provide a sustainable livelihood for families
This project is from the Presbyterian Giving catalog. We will work towards collection of change to purchase a family of chickens. This allows for eggs for food, feathers for pillows and fertilizer for crops. This serves to improve the food security and livelihoods of farmers and families around the world. A subsequent and larger future task will be to help provide water for underserved communities.
Introducing the love of God to young ones
The congregation helps provide a variety of items needed by teachers or students and also include the students, teachers, and their families in various events in the life of Providence Presbyterian Church.
