At Faith, missions is at the core of who we are as a church. Through our 2030 Vision, we are seeking to make a major impact for the Kingdom of God over the next decade, through the consistent dedication of ordinary Christians changed by an extraordinary Savior!

LOCAL FOOD PANTRY
…is open to the public on the 3rd Thursday of each month. We work on an appointment basis. Please call Robin Wilkie, (919) 556-3420, x135 or email email@example.com to schedule an appointment or if you have other questions. Thank you.
If you’d like to donate food, bring your canned or boxed food items and drop them off in the Gallery Hallway of our church. If you’d like to bring items on any Sunday, you can drop those items in the food bins located in Faith’s Gallery hallway between KidzTown and the Main Foyer. Serving 100 families a month means there is often great need. Here is a list of items we need all the time: Peanut Butter, Rice & Pasta, Boxed Dinners (hamburger helper, tuna helper, etc.), Canned Vegetables, Instant Potatoes.
Faith’s Food Pantry engages our community by meeting essential needs and sharing the hope of Jesus. If you’d like to volunteer behind the scenes, sorting and bagging food or to take part in many of the face-to-face opportunities, distributing food, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
GOOD NEWS CLUB
…meets once a month at Long Mill Elementary School from 3:30-4:45pm in the school’s media center/gym. It begins and ends with small group time where children learn Bible verses, hear Bible stories, do fun activities, and enjoy a snack. Leaders get to know the kids, receive prayer requests, and share Jesus’ love. In between, all come together (grades K-5th) for a large group worship time full of music & a weekly Bible story focus.
Good News Clubs are a branch of Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF).

Upward is a youth basketball program for boys and girls, Kindergarten through 6th Grade. This is a faith-based program that can help us serve our neighbors and teach biblical principles to children.

Quebec: In 2011, Faith began a partnership to work alongside, support and plant new churches among the Quebecois people. The more than 7 million French speaking Quebecois are the least evangelized group of people in North America (less than .5%). Faith is committed to sending short-term teams to assist local church planters and missionaries as well as raising up long-term (3 months – lifetime) missionaries to give their life to these people for the sake of them coming to know Jesus.
Good News In Action: In 2008, Faith began to send short-term teams to help in the “0/20 Metro America Project.” This project aims to start new healthy evangelical churches in most of the metropolitan areas in Central America. Teams from Faith have been a part of starting and supporting new churches in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Guatemala. These are wonderful trips for those who have never been on a mission trip to go and get a feel for what church planting and missions looks like.
Pillar Network: Faith is currently partnered with Pillar for church to church collaboration in planting & revitalizing other congregations throughout North America.
Mission trips can be wonderful times of learning and growing in your faith. These can be times when God may guide, direct or challenge you in ways that you never expected. In addition, many of these trips can be taken for credit through SEBTS.
