Local & Global Engagement

We believe serving is more than volunteering. It’s deeper, vaster and a key component of discipleship. As followers of Jesus, serving is God’s love in action, and it is life changing. That’s why we strive to connect people with ways to use their unique gifts and passions to be the hands and feet of Christ in our church, community and world.

Opportunities to serve in Raleigh include serving with our ministry partners (addressing homelessness, hunger, education, poverty, prison ministry and more); at Conn Elementary School, through missional communities; and special events, such as our Great Day of Service and Rise Against Hunger.  Beyond Raleigh, we partner with ministries in Africa, Armenia, East Asia, and Haiti.  A full list of our ministry partners can be found here.

For upcoming events, and ongoing ways to serve locally and globally, check out our monthly Faith In Action newsletter.
