Food Box- Stomach growls? We have a Food Box on site with a snack for you and your family! If you find yourself periodically or even regularly in need of help with nourishment, stop by and pick up a couple cans of soup, spaghetti, Vienna sausages and more! We replenish our food box daily. You will find the Food Box also stocked with cereal, Pop Tarts, Gatorade, water, and canned vegetables.
You can visit the Food Box 24/7/365! It is located under the streetlight just inside out parking lot. And, when you have more than you need, you're welcome to leave items in the Food Box for others! If you need prayer, we provide paper and pens in the attached compartment on the side of the Food Box. We would be honored to pray with you!
Bookbag Program- The bookbag program was started as a mission outreach to Catawba Springs Elementary School. The purpose was to provide food for the weekend to children who qualified for assistance. money is given to the Bookbag Fund where it is used to purchase food and bookbags. Bookbags filled with food are sent to the school at the beginning of the year. The church picks them up each week to be filled and returned so they can be taken home for the weekend. We have provided as many as 25 but at this time, only 7 are needed. This number fluctuates according to the need. This program began in 2007 and for the first 3 years was funded by a grant from Duke Endowment. Blum, Inc. has provided food at Christmas with a food drive from their employees for the past 5 years. We feel privileged to be able to be the hands and feet of Christ to provide this service to the community.
East Lincoln Christian Ministries- Every Saturday, our church sends a few volunteers to East Lincoln Christian Ministries. There, we are able to help assist in sorting different items, delivering items and even assist with checking out. This is open to anyone and everyone to shop and volunteer at.

Monthly Ministry (Go-Ye fund)- We seek to conscientiously fulfill the purpose and program of Christ. He redeemed us that we might be useful in His kingdom.
Each month it's a new pursuit, led by our Missions Committee and participated in by the entire church. We strive to exalt Jesus Christ by what we do, vividly and with care representing Him in our community while serving people's needs in the way Christ Himself would serve them.
This is how we know what love is: "Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth"-1 John 3:16-18
