East Lincoln Christian Ministry is a wonderful place to visit for those in need this holiday season. They have been known to offer help with power bills, provide free food and holiday meals. They even provide toys for children at Christmas. The volunteers are incredibly nice people, that have taken time out of their daily lives to help those in need.
I know that Denver Baptist church provides a great deal of support to East Lincoln Christian Ministries and I am sure there are many more out there and I know as a community, we have all pitched in at one time or another to help them through Food Drives, dropping off gently used toys, clothes, furniture, appliances and more.
More and more often these days, we find ourselves in situations we have never been in before. Lincoln County residents have faced losing their jobs, a construction and real estate downturn in a once thriving community. It has affected us all and sometimes you just need a little help for a little while, visit Christian Ministries.
They are located at
4278 Catawba Burris Road
Denver, NC 28037
When I did an online search to learn more about them, I did not find alot of information. I did find this information from http://www.ncssm.edu/service/east-lincoln-christian-ministry-inc/ that you may find helpful.
There are many in community that may be in need of help, but don’t where to turn….Get the word out! There are also many opportunities to volunteer, so if you can make a little time in your day to day life, I think volunteering to help those in our local community is a great idea.
