Christian Assembly is always seeking God for ways to connect with the Durham community and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
In the process, we have discovered many ways to get us into the community and out on the streets, helping us interact with people in a genuine way, and providing fun things to do together as we help people with the love of Jesus.
Emergency Food Pantry
Christian Assembly’s Emergency Food Pantry ministers to those in need within our community both physically and spiritually. Located in the church Annex Building, the Food Pantry is open the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
The CA Food Pantry also serves the Durham area as an official emergency relief distribution location in times of disaster. We have provided assistance to hurricane and flood victims that relocated to the Triangle. The ongoing work of the Food Pantry is providing food assistance to the hungry in our community. Part of the Feeding America Network, the CA Food Pantry is a partner with the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. Since food availability varies seasonally we also rely on donations. A dedicated group of volunteers work together to serve in this ministry. For more information please email CA Emergency Food Pantry President Kelly Spiers or call the church office at 919-471-0220.
Outreach Events & Projects
CA works with other churches, ministries, and agencies in our region in many different ways to share the love of Jesus. CA launched one after school program in low-income housing and we now assist with another. We do 4 major outreaches a year including evangelism events, city-wide prayer meetings, and community building and redevelopment projects. Please check the schedule for more information on outreach events like Blacktop Games, Vacation Bible School, Back-to-School and Diaper Drives, the Holy Ghost Weenie Roast, and our Christmas Community Outreach.
CA has a Hot Dog Team that not only provides support for CA’s outreach events, but also partners with other churches and organizations to help reach our city for Christ. Contact the church if you would like to have our team provide grill-cooked, beef hotdogs to help with your church or community event.
