Gifts of Love - Bed Building Project
Coined Gifts of Love, this church-wide project built 25 beds for children right in our community who were previously sleeping on the floor. From the wood to the screws to the mattresses and linens, everything was donated, constructed, and delivered by our generous church family. Interested in helping? Stay tuned! We plan to do it again in the Fall of 2023.
Little Free Library
Our Little Free Library provides 24/7 access to free books for all ages! Everyone is welcome to borrow a book or leave a book! It is located on the sidewalk by the Blackburn Building on 100 Green St. NE. 27893
Our church works with several ministries in Wilson; including The Hope Station, The Wesley Shelter, Children's Hunger Elimination of Wilson (CHEW), the Community Soup Kitchen, and the Flynn Homes.
Our Blessing Box is located on the sidewalk near Blackburn Building at 100 Green St. NE. With the idea of "Take what you need, leave what you can," we pray this small food pantry meets the physical needs of those in our community. Everyone is welcome to donate or use the Blessing Box as they feel led; however, we would love for anyone who is able to adopt the box for week at a time and commit to filling it at least twice during the week. You can sign up here! For ideas on what to place in the box, please click here.
