Serving the local community and being the hands and feet of Jesus has been the blueprint for Relentless Church from day one. Throughout 2020 and in the midst of a global pandemic, we have not lost focus on how we can better serve others. From handing out groceries and clothes weekly to our annual ‘Back to School Supply Giveaways’, Relentless Church serves with a thankful heart. Thankful to serve those in need and grateful for a community we get to share life with.
This week, we had a special opportunity to come together for ‘A Day of Prayer and Service’ at our local campus. Leadership, staff, Elders and congregants walked, prayed, and completed works of service around our Greenville campus. We understand that in order to serve others well, we must make sure our home is taken care of. While our teams were masked with personal protective equipment (PPE), it was still such and exciting moment for all to see familiar faces in person.
The Spirit of the Lord was certainly present as each designated group completed works of service around the grounds of the church. Although dozens of people signed up to serve, many more came to simply pray. “Today we are coming together in faith to beautify the campus so that when we come back together, we will be coming back into something we’ve already prayed over and I believe this honors God,” stated Senior Pastor John Gray. “I have a feeling that was the consensus for everyone.”
Earlier, last week a few Elders along with Pastor John began to meet on campus to pray. “We’ve seen miraculous things happen I people’s lives,” stated Pastor DeMarcus Hill, Relentless Reach Director. “Today, we will have prayed for 10 continuous days on-campus, and it will continue until we reach day 21.” Hill went on to say, “at Relentless Church, prayer is the key to God, we cannot and will not move without him (God). This pandemic has a lot of people in need and today we want to offer up prayer because God is able to do more than we could have ever imagined.”

Hi Relentless Family,
I want to let you know that we have been in touch with our state and local officials and have decided to not have service at our Greenville location due to the novel COVID-19 disease threat, also known as the Coronavirus.
However, we invite you, your friends and family to join us online for service THIS SUNDAY. I need you to get this in your spirit – we are still going to be the Church! We are just not gathering in a physical building. We are going to honor our government leaders and we are going to do what’s in the best interest of the health of you, your family and our community.
We will be streaming our worship experience online (YouTube, Facebook, and Relentless Church’s website/app), Sunday at 8:30 am EST and 11 am EST. We will also replay our worship service at 7 pm EST and 10 pm EST on Sunday night. This will give you multiple options to gather your family and friends and receive the word of God.
I want you to be encouraged. I know these are trying times and the Coronavirus has impacted us in ways we did not expect or anticipate. But I believe this will be the Church’s finest hour.
Furthermore, in the New Testament, in the early days of the Church, the Bible said that the Church grew from house to house. What an awesome opportunity for us to be the hands and feet of Jesus right here in our own homes – making our family and our loved ones our priority while trusting God for the resources and provision to see us through this very present crisis.
We love you and we are praying for you. We are believing that God will strengthen His Church during this most difficult season. I know it may look bad, but our God is BIG and we serve a BIG GOD. As more information becomes available, we will keep you informed. God bless you.
Pastor John Gray
