Help us feed local children and families who don’t have enough to eat with our Meadowlark Meals ministry. We offer a food drop-off station each Sunday at G3. Please join us in this outreach by bringing items listed below and placing them in the blue bin in the Welcome Center. We especially need shelf stable milks each week. You can also volunteer to pack the bags of food that the school distributes to hungry children. It takes less than 30 minutes and is a great way for families to serve together. If you would like to pack bags on Sunday morning before or after our worship gathering, please contact Sherri Royall.
Proteins: Individual serving size meats, soups, and pastas with flip top lids.
Vegetables: Individual serving size vegetables (carrots, peas, green beans, mixed vegetables, corn) with flip top lids.
Dairy: Individual serving sized shelf stable milk.
The Center of Hope is Winston Salem’s only family homeless shelter. It is under the direction of the Salvation Army and located on Trade Street. They average around 25 children on any given day. G3 has chosen the Center of Hope as one of our two main “Go” opportunities.
Our Birthday Blessings ministry provides an opportunity for us to share God’s unconditional love through the simple joy of birthday parties. For most of these children, this is a first-time experience and offers them a moment of recognition and honor and creates a time of togetherness for those families experiencing the challenges of homelessness. G3 visits the Center of Hope every other month (typically the 3rd or 4th Thursday).
Volunteers can serve these families by providing cupcakes, inexpensive birthday presents, goody bags, hosting a party, and helping decorate. If you have questions or want more information, contact Robyn Succop
During the year we have opportunities to serve our prison population in Winston-Salem. Quarterly, we have a group that meets for "Donuts and Devotions" at the prison chapel. We also participate in "Hope on the Inside," a time to physically surround the outside of the jail with other churches in our community and have a time of prayer and worship. This past Christmas we collected gifts for the children of inmates, which allowed them to go "shopping" for their children.
If you'd like information about becoming a community sponsor (which opens the door to many more opportunities at the prison), contact Ron Garner. You can also find out more on the Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministry's website
Jesus loves strippers! When we love people where they are, as they are, God shows up in powerful ways, but He can only reach as far as you and I are willing to go. While others may judge and condemn, at Strip Church we go inside with love, gifts and kindness for the dancers who are uniquely loved and treasured by their Savior. For more information about this ministry please contact Julie
