Serving is more than volunteering. It's a deeper component of discipleship and an opportunity to be Christ's hands and feet in to the needy in a broken world.
Diaper Bank of North Carolina
When natural disasters strike, the mission of the DBNC is to distribute dignity by providing basic hygiene needs becomes even more critical. Hurricane Florence has displaced thousands of families, separating them from their communities and resources. Many had to evacuate quickly, lacking time or space to pack personal care items such as diapers, feminine hygiene products, and adult incontinence supplies. Those already vulnerable, such as those living with poverty, families with young children, and the elderly, were particularly at risk.
Discovery Church's Missions Team will support this mission and is asking the Congregation and friends of Discovery to donate the most needed supplies.
The DBNC's most needed supplies are:
Size 4 and 5 diapers
Feminine hygiene pads
With months of rebuilding and resettling ahead, DBNC will work to bring dignity and comfort to families across North Carolina.
It is working closely with the Governor's office and state and local disaster management agencies to determine where it can be of most help, and what items affected communities need most.

Rise Against Hunger
Rise Against Hunger is a Raleigh-based international hunger relief organization with a mission of ending hunger throughout the world. Discovery Church was the first church in Johnston County to bring a Rise Against Hunger meal-packaging event to the area. Since then, we've packaged about 100,000 meals for hungry children and families across the world.
Note in the Pocket
Note in the Pocket provides clothing and shoes to impoverished and homeless children, believing it's unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school. Discovery Church partners with Note in the Pocket to help "clothe children with dignity and love."
Each September 11, we serve and remember through Activate Good's Day of Service and Commemoration, a Triangle-wide day of serving to honor those lost on 9/11.
