St. Titus’ parishioners engage with our neighbors through several ministries. Examples include the CROP Walk, the PRIDE parade, National Night Out, and other events. To find out more about any one of our ministries of events, see Willette Crews, Chuck Hennessee, or the Rev. Sarah Woodard.
North Carolina Central University
Participants in this ministry attend Transformation Tuesday sessions with the students on Tuesday evenings during the school year. Transformation Tuesdays are times for worship, praise, and community building. Participants in this ministry also support students with snacks and encouragement, including prayers, during exam breaks. See the Rev. Sarah Woodard.
C. C. Spaulding Elementary School
Members of St. Titus’ serve as mentors and proctors, read to students, and assist the faculty in any way that is needed. We also provide gifts for the students at Christmas.
Food Distribution at El Buen Pastor
Another outreach activity is helping to distribute food at our sister church, El Buen Pastor, on the first Saturday of each month.
There are several ways to become involved in prison ministry at St. Titus’. These include bringing inmates to Sunday services and supporting Yokefellows Prison Ministry and Reentry House Plus, Inc., a non-profit corporation for the purpose of assisting post-incarcerated with housing, mentoring, and assistance with job placement. If you are interested in this ministry talk with the Rev. David Stanford.
CROP Hunger Walk
CROP Hunger Walks are community-based walk events held in cities and towns across the United States raising funds to support the global mission of Church World Service, a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster.
This ministry provides the opportunity to extend a radical welcome to newcomers. More than simply opening our red doors to usher folks in, we find ways to spread the gospel and remind others of the union of Christ and our Christian community internally and externally. We experience the promises we make through the Baptismal Covenant we make with God and each other and extend a welcoming hand to help acclimate the newcomer to the mission and vision of our church. As we share our time and gifts with others, our faith is no doubt stronger and our work together more meaningful. Our insight to the needs of the world grows keener as we get to know each other. And, as we help others discern their gifts, we also discern our own! Together, we respond to the needs of the church and the world with love, encouragement and participation. This committee ensures that the radical welcome for which St. Titus’ is known extends far beyond the first encounter we have with newcomers. The work of this ministry is ongoing and rewarding.
