Community Partnerships

Marathon Gives Back

Marathon Church Gives Back is one aspect of our church designed to strategically partner with local organizations that assist our community in reaching their needs. These organizations are non-profits who focus their resources and man-power to making a long-term difference in the Upstate of South Carolina and around the world. Since we strive to develop strategic partnerships focused on community impact, we are very strategic in our selection of community outreach partners. Key characteristics include sound resource stewardship and effective volunteer engagement.
Not only do we encourage you to be a part of our groups and ministries, but we would love to see you serve alongside some of our strategic partners in the community.
