Religion

As in many communities, the church is the focal point in the lives of many people in the Greenville/Pitt County area. There are over 250 churches/synagogues/temples in the county, representing nearly all principal denominations.

Many also operate day care centers, kindergartens, and church-related schools (through high school in some instances).
