After discovering a void in our community, GPBC started a Food Pantry several years ago as a service for local families in need. The main focus of this outreach is to provide physical nourishment while sharing the Gospel through tracts, inviting the people we serve to church, and praying for their families.
Volunteers are always welcome to participate in this vital community outreach. Anyone age 13 or older is encouraged to work in the Food Pantry and everyone is encouraged to generously donate food items. A full listing of items needed can be provided upon request.
As part of a national organization, a group of volunteers at GPBC delivers hot meals to the homebound & elderly Monday through Friday at lunchtime. A cheerful face and warm meal touches the lives of so many people who are otherwise alone most of the day. The meals are received at the church office and volunteers deliver them to homes in the Knightdale community. The route delivery generally requires about one hour to complete and most volunteers sign up to serve in this ministry at least once per month.

Carillon is an assisted living facility just down the road from Green Pines! Volunteers hold a weekly church service with music, preaching, and sharing God's love with those who can no longer drive or have no one to take them to church. The service is appreciated enthusiastically by the loving seniors who attend. Its purpose is to provide spiritual growth and a sense of community for fellow Christians living there, as well as being an outreach for the unsaved. If you have a heart for those with a lot of years of life experience and stories to tell about all the challenges life can bring.

As a church we help our local elementary school by reaching out to them and serving. GPBC sponsored a Teacher Appreciation Lunch this spring to show the love of Jesus.
