LOCAL MISSIONS

Our community of faith is actively involved in the local mission field. Join us as we seek to be the hands and feet of Christ!

Interfaith Hospitality Network /
Family Promise of Lee County

Interfaith Hospitality Network / Family Promise of Lee County is an interfaith non-profit organization committed to helping low-income families nationwide achieve lasting independence.   The Interfaith Hospitality Network, as part of Family Promise, uses networks of congregations and volunteers to provide shelter, meals and comprehensive support services to homeless families.  As a host congregation, Morris Chapel provides meals, hosts and overnight facilities for several families for one week quarterly. The program for one family is limited to 90 days and in that time they are given needed guidance to find jobs, save rent money, complete education courses and restart their lives. IHN is a valuable local mission where faith and good works come together for positive results.

Helping Hand Clinic

The Helping Hand Clinic seeks seek to provide compassionate and competent medical, dental, vision and pharmaceutical services to low income Lee County residents who have no medical insurance and who are making a sincere effort to help themselves and their families.

El Refugio

El Refugio is a Christian organization that improves the quality of life for all in the Sanford area of Lee County, North Carolina by building bridges between both transitioning immigrants and established residents through sharing, learning, and serving our community together while respecting cultural identities.

Haven in Lee County

HAVEN in Lee County is a non-profit agency created in 1985 to provide safety and support for those victimized by domestic and sexual violence in or outside their homes and to educate the community about the issues of family violence and sexual assault. The name HAVEN is an acronym for Helping Abuse and Violence End Now. It embodies our mission to help hurting people heal from abuse.

Christians United Outreach Center of Lee County

The Christians United Outreach Center of Lee County meets people at their point of need, following the example of Christ. CUOC strives to develop, implement and maintain programs which provide for physical, spiritual, and other needs while assisting clients to become less “aid dependent.” CUOC offers follow-up care through a local church family at any of their participating congregations. 

The Bread Basket

The Breadbasket opened its doors in September 1990. In 1991, 8,358 plates were served.  The menu consisted of soup and sandwiches. As time passed, the meal became more of a home-cooked-style meal, which today consists of at least one meat, two vegetables, usually a salad, tea and dessert. Through generous donations from individuals, churches and businesses, an 1,800-square-foot building with industrial cooking equipment was opened on East Chisholm Street in 2002, where they now operate.
