Joining together as a community to serve the most vulnerable
Making a Lasting Difference
In gratitude for God’s grace and unconditional love, we connect with God’s people and strive to make a lasting difference, serving and supporting those in need while respecting their dignity.
How We Can Help
In the midst of an extremely difficult and unexpected year, we believe we are called to help our neighbors in need – maybe now more than ever. We are amazed at our partners’ commitment to support their clients and their ability to adapt to the changing needs during this challenging time. Check out how these incredible ministries are continuing to serve those most vulnerable!
Meals on Wheels
Daily warm meals have been replaced with a weekly delivery of seven frozen meals in order to decrease risk to 1,400 elderly or homebound Wake County neighbors they serve. At this time, no volunteer drivers are needed, but please visit wakemow.org to learn how you can help.
Our partners south of the border are currently not building houses due to travel restrictions and social distancing. Since they are not able to host teams at this time, their resources are being turned toward providing to-go meals to the colonia, sewing face masks for the community and supporting those showing signs of the virus in their medical clinic. Please visit faithministry.org to learn how to help.
Brown Bag Ministry
At this time, Saint Philips’ Brown Bag Ministry has suspended the delivery of lunches twice a month to Cedar Point Apartments. However, a small group of individuals continue to deliver diapers once a month. During the summer months, Saint Andrews had an extremely successful cleaning supply drive, that helped the community stay safe while providing much needed children’s programs.
In addition, we were able to supply some grocery gift cards to families in need. We are hoping that the program will be running at full capacity sometime this fall. For now, we ask for continued prayers for the welfare of these families! If you have any questions, contact Beth Mielcarek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Loaves and Fish
Our partners at Loaves and Fishes ask for prayers for their kids and families. It is difficult for families, volunteers and staff to be separated from each other when they are extended family! Like most vulnerable populations, food insecurity is a real and dire threat to these families. To learn how to help spread the love, please visit lafchildren.org.
Due to school being out, the BPB program is not packing food at this time. However, food goods collected prior to the pandemic have been allocated to our other mission partners. If you want to help in other ways go to www.foodshuttle.org.
North Raleigh Ministries
With so many of our neighbors in need at this time, the NRM Crisis Center is working overtime! Proceeds from the thrift store have decreased resulting in less cash to help with the increased needs. Donations of staple pantry items and money to help support their clients are very welcome. To learn how to help these front-line workers keep people in their homes and fed, visit northraleighministries.com/give or drop off donations at the back door.
Haiti Reforestation Partnership
The growing, nurturing and planting in the CODEP project continues despite the pandemic. However due to closed markets and borders, Haiti is experiencing a severe fresh food shortage. Please keep our partners down in Haiti in your prayers as the number of COVID cases continue to rise and a chronic lack of healthcare impacts everyone in the country. For more information visit haitireforest.org.
Rise Against Hunger
RAH has recently begun to hold smaller, physically-distanced packing events to try to gain back a supply of meals and engage people in a fun, educational way to help end hunger by 2030. RAH is striving to continue to reach those they serve with nutritious meals, medical aid and clean water/hygiene kits. To learn how to help meet the critical needs of those facing hunger, visit riseagainsthunger.org.
A Place at the Table
Due to the pandemic, we have converted to a curbside service only. You can order by phone or walk up to place your order and be on your way! We continue to be a pay-what-you-can community but the demand for free meals has skyrocketed. At this time our menu is limited but our food is Oh! So good! To learn more please visit us at tableraleigh.org.
SAPC’s local mission partners serve a variety of needs in our community. Our focus is on supporting programs that assists individuals and families to grow into self-sufficiency while also giving support to meet basic daily needs of those in crisis.

Reaching the Least, the Last and the Lost
Our long-term international partners provide support to build sustainable food supplies and housing communities in certain communities in Haiti and Mexico. Our congregants can join mission trips to work on the projects first-hand or be a part of food packing events right here in North Raleigh.
Social Justice Committee
God’s Work of Justice
As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called both individually and collectively to fearlessly apply our faith to advocate and break down the systems, practices and thinking that underly discrimination, bias, prejudice and oppression. The Social Justice Committee is dedicated to God’s work of justice in the world.
The committee focuses on raising awareness of social issues through education and believes that we are called to act on our beliefs to change laws, policies, plans and structures in our society that perpetuate injustice. Find out more at sapc-justice.org.
