Communities Helping Assisting Motivating Promising Students (C.H.A.M.P.S.)

CHAMPS is a program designed to provide promising students with a vision of their future and stimulate them to strive toward post-secondary education. Eastminster also holds a one-week Summer Program where students receive academic instruction and support, Christian-based character education, career exploration, and service learning.

Family Promise

Family Promise of the Midlands engages worship communities to help support the sizeable and sometimes unseen population of homeless families in our midst. Eastminster is one of the host churches that helps share the mission of helping these families become self-sustaining.

I Want to Help


The primary goal of Transitions is to move people from homelessness to permanent housing. Various strategies and types of housing are used to help stabilize individuals living on the street and enroll them in services designed to stabilize their lives, increase their income, and help them secure permanent housing. Eastminster has volunteers who monthly make meals and serve meals at Transitions and there is a standing service opportunity every third Thursday of each month to make and serve dinner.
