At Faith Church, we believe that living in community means being out in the world, showing the light of Christ to the lost, helping those in need, and showing grace because we’ve been shown grace. Here are just a few of the key local organizations that we are involved with. Find where you can help and share the love of Christ with others.
MARY CAMPBELL CENTER
The Mary Campbell Center is a long-term residential care facility for adults with disabilities located less than two miles from our church facility. To support the Center’s goal of providing for its residents spiritual needs, we host two afternoon worship services each month on Sunday afternoons. The services are informal and friendly, filled with familiar music, reading the Bible, plain-spoken teaching, and lots of time for spending time with the residents and their family and friends. Volunteer commitments are minimal but the benefits are significant. If you are interested in helping, contact us.
SUNDAY BREAKFAST MISSION
The Sunday Breakfast Mission is a homeless shelter in inner-city Wilmington that believes that if you provide for one's physical needs without dealing with their spiritual needs, you haven't really helped. Since 1893, the SBM has been touching lives and helping people. A new women’s & children’s shelter is now open, providing even more opportunities to share the Gospel and change the lives of the people of Wilmington.
There are often people from Faith Church that go and help serve meals to those that lean on the Sunday Breakfast Mission for help in meeting their most basic needs. With the new women/children shelter, the need is even that much greater. If you are interested in getting involved, you can contact the Sunday Breakfast Mission directly to sign up (302-652-8314) or go onto their website. Monthly, a team from our congregation leads a worship service for the men at the Sunday Breakfast Mission. If you are interested in helping, you can contact Brent DeLeo.
URBAN PROMISE WILMINGTON
Founded in 1988, UrbanPromise is an inner-city Wilmington ministry with the mission to teach children and young adults the skills necessary for spiritual growth, academic achievement, life management, and Christian leadership. Faith Church has a long history of being involved and helping Urban Promise on their mission. There are several ways you can get involved in this ministry and change the life of a child. Faith Church is involved in reading nights, work days, an annual summer camp carnival, and an annual overnight camp. Urban Promise is in need of tutors, mentors, and supplies. You can reach out directly to Urban Promise to volunteer, or contact us.
A DOOR OF HOPE
A Door of Hope offers free help to women who are verifying and making decisions about their pregnancies. Many of their clients face unplanned pregnancies and difficult decisions. No matter the concern, A Door of Hope provides high standards of care and compassion for every woman who seeks help at their centers. ADOH centers are located in Wilmington, Newark, and Middletown, Delaware. A Door of Hope Pregnancy Center is a faith-based, non-profit organization. Their free services are entirely funded by individuals, businesses, and the Christian community. Annually, Faith Church participates in Baby Bottle Boomerang, a fund drive that helps provide services and faith-based counseling to their clients.
GOOD NEIGHBORS HOME REPAIR
There's a problem in our neighborhoods: thousands of people in our neighborhoods can't afford to fix their homes. Seniors. Single moms. Disabled veterans. The working poor. Poverty affects 105,000 people in Chester and New Castle counties. It's not a choice, it's circumstances that interrupt life goals and plans. The result is below standard housing and diminishing hope that it can ever be changed. Good Neighbors believes everyone should have a safe place to live. We have made it our mission to do all we can to restore hope for those who have few or no resources to fix the leaking roof, the broken window or the worn out furnace. Many people in our communities live in unsafe housing and for the past 26 years, we have helped hundreds of families live in warmer, safer, drier and healthier homes.
