SECOND MILE MINISTRY at GREY STONE CHURCH
LOCATED AT 2601 HILLSBOROUGH RD in DURHAM NC
Second Mile Ministries exists to share the compassion of Jesus Christ with our community. We provide counseling, food, and financial help with past-due bills for electricity, water, and rent to licensed landlords. Every Wednesday, our volunteers counsel and assist approximately 30 local families by praying, providing a Biblical devotion, as well as a listening ear and service. Every single week, we have between 8-12 new clients that have not been to Second Mile before. In addition…
The Backpack Ministry for Riverside School feeds up to 97 misplaced or homeless children at Riverside.
Our Legacy Childcare Ministry is an area where we help the staff who have financial and food needs. This is an extension of our church family and an opportunity to serve our own. We are blessed to assist them.
We assist our church members who face life changing financial and food needs. We are helping numerous church members that are unable to provide for their own needs. The Second Mile Ministry considers it our calling to help those in need.
