About Upstate Christian Ministries
Welcome to the Upstate Christian Ministries Website. We are a ministry dedicated to bringing singles and couples together for fun, fellowship and encouragement. It is our desire for everyone to not only find fun activities, but to be encouraged in their spiritual life to grow in the knowledge and joy that comes from a relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The ministry started in 2002 with a small number of singles wanting to bring singles together for encouragement. The very first dance was a Valentine's dance. It was such a huge success, showing the need for singles to be in community. Since that first dance we have grown into several monthly dances and other activities. We have singles from all around the upstate of North and South Carolina attend our events. Some of our singles come from Charleston, Columbia, Anderson, Spartanburg, Asheville and other areas of North Carolina, South Carolina and even Georgia.
As the ministry has continued to grow, many of our singles have met their spouse and are now married. Many of our couples continue to come back to our dances and Bible studies and are wanting to stay involved. Because of the growing number of married couples that want to stay involved as well as a number of couples that want to come to our dances, we have started a new arm of the ministry for our couples. We now have the Upstate Christian Couples ministry. We are looking forward to seeing this part of the ministry develop and grow.
We have a weekly Bible study that we are very excited about. There are around 40 singles that meet each week to discuss the Word, apply the Word and pray together. Out of our Bible study we have small group ministries forming. God is working in the lives of our singles! Join us for our weekly Bible study.
We hold dances, Karaoke, Speed Dating Sessions, Bible Studies and other activities. Come and join us for our many activities that take place each month.
