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.

PRAY FOR THE CHILDREN WE COME ALONGSIDE IN LIBERIA

We support two ZOE Empowerment Groups, comprised of nearly 200 orphans and vulnerable children in Liberia. We invite you to join us in prayer for these amazing kids as they journey through a three year program that empowers them to break the cycle of extreme poverty and to become entrepreneurs who are socially, economically, and spiritually strong — transforming entire communities in the process.  Pray through the list of the Bugieama “Contribution” Empowerment Group.  Names and ages of our 2nd group coming soon.  

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: 8/11 – 18 & 11/3 – 10.   Get involved with our August 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.
