Tuesday afternoon FPC Newton Middle school mission team served at Church in the Woods in downtown Raleigh.
Church in the Woods is an outreach ministry of InterSeed. InterSeed is a non-denominational Christian prayer organization that prays for specific needs involving our city, state and county. "Church in the Woods" was born out of prayer teams going out onto the streets to pray for people "on location". Hands on ministry. The Bible says to leave the 99 and go find the one. Most agencies are not equipped to search for those in need. We are that tool. Alice McGee, Director of "CITW" visits the homeless along with volunteer team members. Teams bring food, toiletries, sleeping bags, clothing and love to the people they find. Counseling, prayer and friendship are also offered. "Church in the Woods" is made up of dedicated volunteers who want to "touch" the lives of those in need. No one is beyond the reach of God, no matter how addicted or broken.
We sorted over 200 pairs of shoes, sorted through socks and sent the old socks to With Love from Jesus . This agency will sell the material and receive money for each pound.
We were able to sort and fold clothes and help get everything organized. Miss Jackie, Volunteer Coordinator, commented that this was the best group she has had to volunteer! Go FPC Newton Youth.
