Together, we can rewrite the story of 2020.


2020 has been a year of incredible change. A global pandemic, systemic racial injustice and a country that seems increasingly divided with each passing day. For many of us, this change has been painful and confusing.

If you’re like us, you long to engage and do something to make a difference in the face of these unprecedented challenges. And yet, as you’ve endured the chaos and tumult of 2020, you’ve been left exhausted, overwhelmed and unsure of how to take action.

But there is hope. What if instead of fearing change,we joined together and embraced it? What if we discovered we were made for change — not just to endure it, but to thrive through it? 


For 5 years, World Relief Upstate SC has been leaning into change and responding to the opportunities that often come with disruption. Many of you have been with us along the way.

These disruptions have acted as the refiners fire, testing our faith, growing our endurance and making us stronger today for a better world tomorrow. We’ve discovered that when we move together, we can be an incredible force for good and an agent for lasting change. So, this season, we’re asking you to join us as we:
