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.

JOIN US THIS LENT

Throughout Lent, we will be sharing stories in worship of orphaned and vulnerable children who we come alongside in Liberia and Haiti through two amazing ministries – ZOE and Help One Now.  ZOE and Help One Now empower orphans and vulnerable children with the resources and skills needed to rise out of extreme poverty.  We invite you to join us in 40 days of prayer for these kids and ministries.  

Pray through the full list of 82 ZOE children we support in Liberia.

HELP FAMILIES WHO ARE HOMELESS 

As part of a network of churches called Family Promise, we welcome families who are temporarily experiencing homelessness, and provide housing and meals on the third floor of our original campus for a week at a time, four-five times a year. Each host week takes many hands, and we’d love for you to join us!  

There are lots of ways to help from set up or take down, to welcoming guests, making meals or spending the night, to helping with daily transportation or washing linens and towels. 

2019 Host Dates: 4/7 – 14, 8/11 – 18 & 11/3 – 10.   Get involved with our April Family Promise Hosting! 

TAKE A VISION TRIP

Help One Now Haiti Trip – Edenton Street partners with Help One Now in the incredible work they are doing with community development initiatives and classroom sponsorships in and around Pétionville, Haiti.

ZOE Liberia TripEdenton Street comes alongside ZOE empowerment groups of orphaned and vulnerable children in Liberia as they journey through ZOE’s empowerment program.  Through local leadership, ZOE equips these young people to overcome extreme poverty in just three years.  It is amazing to witness the transformation taking place in the lives of the young people in our working groups and the impact it is having on their siblings and communities.  Click here for a brief overview of the 2018 trip.
