At Triune, we attempt to empower rather than enable. Toward that end, our relief work is limited to four hot meals a week, a grocery pantry and laundry services. Every other ministry is aimed at offering transformational possibilities to our parishioners – from drug rehab to social work to advice from our volunteer lawyers.
Triune Circles is a year-long relational ministry designed to assist individuals and families who want to move out of poverty or homelessness and make significant life changes. The focus is on equipping and empowering people to move forward while being surrounded by a supportive team. Each participant is called a leader because he or she is in charge of the direction the Circle moves and is accountable for decisions and progress.
Each Circle consists of one leader and four to five volunteers from the community. Both leaders and support team members go through training before and after the Circles are formed to help equip them for this journey. One of the foundational pieces of the program is "My Future Story", written by each leader and used as the target goal.
To learn more or to join a Triune Circle, contact Cheri Shumate at 864-233-8020, ext. 150 or via email at email@example.com.

The art room at Triune Mercy is a fun and brightly painted room, perfect for creativity. Most of the art work throughout our building was created in this room, and a piece is displayed beside the pulpit every Sunday.
Dr. Dale Savidge, theater department chair at North Greenville University, founded our Playback Café. The homeless tell their stories, and trained community actors “play them back.” It is our attempt to address a common feeling among the homeless – that they are “looked right through.” For performance times, call Linda Hanna at 233-8020, ext. 120 or contact her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Triune social worker Robin Barton and Bon Secours St. Francis social worker Rhonda Lindsay help people with issues ranging from housing to prescriptions to coordinated medical services to legal aid from our volunteer attorneys. Robin and other Triune staff also run twice-a-week Round Tables to encourage people to work toward goals, and a monthly Welcome Home support group for those who have moved into housing. For more information, contact Robin at 864-233-8020, ext. 107, or email@example.com, or Rhonda at 864-449-2071 or Rhonda_Lindsay@bshsi.org.
