what to expect
Pendleton Street Baptist Church is a community of believers centered and growing in Christ Jesus. Our goal is to glorify God as we learn and grow (making mature disciples) here in our local area, as we partner with other churches in our nation and in other countries. We are passionate about loving Jesus and making Him known in Greenville, SC and around the world.
Sunday mornings, we meet as a church family in the Piedmont Ballroom of the Hilton Greenville, 45 W. Orchard Park Dr. (see map below).
At 9:00 a.m., we have classes called “Christian Life Academy” (CLA) for adults. These classes are led by different teachers in our church, and are on different subjects throughout the year. During the COVID19 pandemic, we have reduced our number of classes to stay compliant with the safety regulations, and at this time no children’s classes are meeting. When we are able to resume our children’s classes, we use ‘The Gospel Project’ by LifeWay to teach our children.
After CLA at 10:00 a.m., PSBC provides coffee and wrapped snacks for a time of fellowship before the worship service. We encourage you to come meet our PSBC family members, and take a little time to get to know us!
We meet for worship on Sunday mornings in the Hilton Greenville at 10:30 a.m. We have what is commonly known as a “blended” worship style, where we incorporate the newer praise and worship songs along with a favorite hymn or two each service. We have talented musicians and worship leaders who lead with a variety of instruments – sometimes with a small band including drums and keyboards, sometimes with just an acoustic guitar. Whatever the medium, our goal is to bring our congregation to an attitude of corporate worship, into a time of prayer, learning, and serving our Lord and one another. Pastor Marty Price uses the English Standard Version of the Bible to bring his messages, but will often refer to other versions as well. We use slides to enhance our worship in song as well as during the sermon.
During this time, we are following COVID19 safety suggestions, including the Hilton’s requirement that everyone wear masks in the common areas. Our chairs for worship are situated 6 feet apart in small groups, for sitting with your family or people you know well. We provide hand sanitizer and masks (one per person) if needed.
Pendleton Street Baptist Church currently meets at the Hilton Greenville, but our offices and our hearts are in the West End of Greenville. Plans for moving our congregation back to the West End are underway. News will be posted on our website as it happens!
