Outreach to the Homeless
We are continuously collecting items to give to the homeless in our city. Once a month on the 4th Sabbath of the month we prepare bags with donated items and distribute them.
Items needed: healthy snacks, Kirkland Signature Variety Snack Box or similar, 8-oz bottles of water, chips, Bibles, wet wipes, wash cloths and deodorant.
The Winston-Salem Seventh-day Adventist Church, together with the Greensboro, High Point and Kernersville churches, have operated Tri-City Christian Academy at 8000 Clinard Farms Road in High Point for the past 55 years.The K-10 grade school has averaged between 80-90 students over the past 10 years with seven full-time teachers and seven additional support staff.The low student-teacher ratio, the intentional interaction of students in different grade levels and an emphasis on Christian service and leadership development is what makes the school unique. Many visitors remark about the caring homeschool-like atmosphere that characterizes the school.

Crossnore Children's Home
This ministry supports the Crossnore Children's Home in Winston-Salem. We began in 2021 by giving Thanks-giving meals to 10 families and Christmas gifts to 67 teens.
In 2022 we have adopted a cottage. There are several cottages on Crossnore's facility grounds and each is a home for a number of children plus staff 'parents.' Our cottage houses 8 children and is in need of grandparents to assist with the children. As a group this is our role. We engage with the children on a regular basis and coordinate special activities with them such as celebrating birthdays, milestones and more.
For the month of October we are accepting donations of clothing for all school-age children (5-18).
Supplies for the South Fork Elementary School
We are collecting food that will be distributed to needy students each Friday, to help feed their families over the weekend.
Suggested items: spaghetti & sauce; macaroni & cheese; canned fruit; canned vegetables; canned soup; canned tuna or chicken; and especially: ramen noodle meals and boxed cereals.
Items may be dropped off at the church on Sabbath morning, or other times by appointment.
