On Sundays, during BFL, there is an available spot to work with the 2 year olds and another open position with the older elementary children.

A “Baby Bottle Blessings” campaign to benefit Pregnancy Support Services of Durham will run from Sunday, January 18 through Sunday, February 15.  PSS is a Christian ministry providing alternatives to abortion by supporting women facing the challenges of unplanned pregnancy.  You can help support this ministry by taking home a baby bottle and filling it with your silver change.  Bottles and instructions will be available near the welcome desk on the ground floor of the North Tower throughout the campaign (as well as the North Tower Resource Center and Sanctuary foyer) and need to be returned on February 15 to a collection box there also.  For questions, contact the campaign liaison Lisa Estes, or visit the PSS website, www.pregnancysupport.org, for more information.


The Caring Center is a thrift store operated out of the basement of our church.  It is open to the general public and also works to fulfill basic clothing needs to those in need from the surrounding community. Caring Center Needs: We are in need of new or gently used, CLEAN blankets, comforters or sleeping bags.  Also, we are in great need of the following MEN’S items: shoes (especially any type of boots), coats, jackets, long sleeved shirts, and sweaters.  In addition, do not forget that the Caring Center will take your Christmas decorations that you would rather not pack up.  Any ornaments, garland, linens, do-dads, wrapping paper, bows, stockings, trees, wreaths, WORKING light strands…you name it, we’ll take it.  We can store them until next year! Have questions about the Caring Center? Contact Kelly Pendergraft or Jayme Ung.


The Preschool Ministry is blessed to have some children with special needs. We are looking for some people that might be willing to help out on Sunday mornings during extended session and Wednesday evenings.
