Campus Crusade for Christ, CRUMy name is Cam and I grew up in Goldsboro, NC and absolutely love being on staff here at NC State. In addition to NC State, the Lord has allowed me to be part of ministry with CCC in East Asia, on our Regional Team in Apex and in Clearwater Beach, FL. I am continually amazed at what the Lord is doing on our campus and around the world. It's an exciting time in history to watch Him at work - how fun that we get to be a part of that!! As a non-profit outreach ministry of FPC our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing Christian environment for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years with age-appropriate activities.

Community Soup KitchenWe bring together people and resources of Wayne County to provide a daily meal for those who are hungry . Each person is welcomed with understanding, dignity and without obligation. In 2015 we are serving between 150-200 people each day, 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year. This mission exemplifies what Christ has called us to do, "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me... just as you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to me." Matthew 25:35

In addition to providing funding and helpers to serve the daily mid day meals, the CSK offers through professional volunteers; health screening, dental and optical services, mental health services, VA services, and job referrals for those in need.

Clothing Giveaway: In response to a need for adult and children's clothing in the community, particularly after local hurricanes and floods, a Clothing Giveaway was initiated 10 years ago. Members of FPC and friends in the community donate good clean clothing, volunteers spend a week sorting and setting up for the event, and on the first Saturday of October, families line up early in the morning to enter the gym and select their "new clothes."
