The Church at Greer Station will celebrate its one-year anniversary at its new home next Sunday, Sept. 6.  A free lunch and birthday cake, catered by Laurenda's Catering, will follow the 10am service.

The church, founded by Trevor Hoffman and David Eill, held its first Sunday gathering at Greer Community Ministries on April 20, 2014. Five months later it moved to Grace Hall on Trade Street and held the first public service on Sept. 7.

Consistent growth, however, forced Hoffman and Eill to search for a larger meeting place.

"Due to more frequent growth than anticipated, we had to begin searching for a venue with adequate childcare space and adequate space for our worship gathering," Hoffman, who is the church's teaching pastor, said.  "By God's grace we happened into the Greer Opry House and heard that it had come under new management."

Renamed the Spinning Ginny, The Church at Greer Station holds services at the 107 Cannon Street location.

"After a few months of prayer and deliberation, we decided that this space afforded our church a unique opportunity to not only have our needs met, but also allowed us to be an integral part of the city being made new," Hoffman said.

Hoffman expressed his love for the Greer community and credits God with helping his church grow in the past year.

"It has been absolutely incredible watching God establish us in the city over this past year," Hoffman said.  "He's been so good to us in providing us places to gather, people with which to serve, and opportunities to demonstrate and declare Jesus."

Hoffman said that it is the mission of The Church at Greer Station to help people grow in their faith and promote love and compassion.

"God is good and has brought us a lot of wonderful people," Hoffman said.  " We're a simple church who wants to love Jesus, each other, and our city."
