West Virginia has some of the poorest counties in the United States, mainly because of high unemployment and the modernization and closing of coal mines. Unfortunately, there are not many employment opportunities, therefore they are not able to help one another or themselves. God has called The Shepherd’s Hands ministry to help these people both physically and spiritually. Saluda Baptist Church has partnered with this Shepherd’s Hands to help provide support in this impoverished area in the United States.
We are very proud of our college aged students at Saluda Baptist Church. To help support them, we have a dedicated Sunday School class for those able to attend, but also have a ministry focused upon encouraging those away from home attending school. If you or someone you care for is a college-aged student and would like us to include them in our ministry, please contact the Church Office.
