Our Hands-On Missions team supports local nursing homes, shut ins, and Hospice House patients with hand-made cards and care packages. This team also puts together personal hygiene care packages to support the Domestic Violence Program, Hope Mission Homeless Center, and Family Promise of Carteret County.
We have a team that travels to Ayden, NC a few times a month to work with NCPacks4Patriots. Our Hands-On Missions team makes cards for troops and bring them to NCPacks4Patriots where they are shipped overseas in care packages for deployed military personnel. We also help pack personal hygiene kits for soldiers in Combat duty that are distributed 2-3 times yearly.
Knitting and Prayer Shawl Ministry
Our Knitting Ministry hand-makes prayer shawls for those who have been hospitalized or are in recovery. They also knit lapghans made for local nursing home and oncology patients, as well as make children’s winter hats made for the local Head Start program.
Hurricane Relief Program
Our Hurricane Relief Program helps community members in need following a natural disaster. Our most recent project involved completing 25 buckets filled with hygiene items, tarps, mold killer, and other items necessary for post-hurricane cleanup.
Our Food Ministry hosts a monthly Buggy Day at the church, where we collect non-perishable food items to be distributed to local food pantries. This team also hosts local food drives that are sponsored by church members in their home neighborhoods. Food collected from these drives are also distributed to local food pantries and other community needs.
The Appalachian Christmas Outreach project concluded last weekend with a total of 42 backpacks filled and delivered. Thank you to those who made a difference in the lives of these little children at Christmas time, and a special thank you to the Guthrie family for their hauling a full truck load of backpacks and supplies to Cherry Point Baptist Church where the backpacks will be sorted and packed for delivery to the Appalachian areas.

We worked alongside Morehead City Primary School for the second year in a row to bring donations of candy to NCPacks4Patriots for our troops! The kids of MCPS donated almost 300 pounds of candy this year! We are so excited to be able to take this candy to NCPacks in Ayden to bless our troops overseas.
