One Church One Child - Mission Statement
Monday, April 28, 2014, there will be a One Church One Child meeting at St. James United Methodist Church located at 2000 E. Sixth Street, Greenville, N.C. This meeting will be held in room 108, which is located in their Christian Life Ministries Center building. Lorelei Schaffhausen and Rosemary Moore, from The Faith Connection, a faith based program located in New Bern, NC, will be present information about their program which they operate in conjunction with several churches in their community. We would like to increase the number of churches in our community that currently are involved with Pitt County DSS One Church One Child Program.

The Pitt County One Church One Child Program is an outreach program between Pitt County Department of Social Services and area churches. This organization is designed to make a positive difference in the lives of our foster care and families that car for them.
