The Outreach had its beginnings in 1970 following a lay renewal at First Presbyterian Church. A Bible Study Group rented a small house in the east Florence area where Sunday afternoon meetings were held. Gradually, neighborhood children, primarily black, started to come and soon became regular in attendance. The number of participants became so large that we began meeting at First Presbyterian Church, then at Trinity Presbyterian Church for a short time. In May 1987 we moved into our present building at 320 National Cemetery Road.
