Outreach is also pleased to also announce Nutbush clothing collections for the month of August:
Nutbush Presbyterian Church is resuming their Fall Clothing Give-away!
Nutbush is a small church in Vance County, one of the poorest counties in North Carolina. Because Wake County is one of the wealthiest counties, we have been asked to help supplement the supply of clothing for the Give-away. NRPC helped with this for a number of years before the pandemic and we are pleased that they can resume this much needed project. Please bring clothes in good condition in any size to the Faith Ministries Building on any of the next Sundays in August (8,15,22 and the 29th), between 8:30am and 10:30am. Contact the office for questions or scheduling issues. The Nutbush community is very grateful for your donations.
We will also help provide food donations for the Food Bank of Eastern North Carolina. Many people with food insecurity have been asking for assistance, and the Food Bank is trying to collect more donations which can be sent to the counties which they serve. Food donations can also be placed in the bins located in the FMB narthex between 8:30am--10:30am.
The food drive’s most needed items are:
Book bags for Children in Foster Care - Updated
With nearly 500 children in foster care in Wake County, the Outreach Team is inviting you to provide sturdy book bags for these children as they head back to their traditional year in school. The sizes should include smaller ones for children in elementary school as well as regular-sized book bags for middle and high schoolers.
The outpouring of school supplies has been very generous, and moving forward, we are hoping to receive more book bags. If you have already purchased school supplies, we appreciate those donations as well.
Drop off. You can drop off the donations in the Narthex on Sunday, July 25 when you attend worship, or bring them to the FMB on Sunday, August 1 from 9 am - 11 am. Thank you for supporting children in foster care.
SUNDAY, JUNE 6: Coffee and Clean up Buckets!! You are invited to remain after worship on Sunday, June 6 for Coffee and Clean up Buckets.

These buckets are given to families and individuals impacted by flood, hurricanes, and similar disasters. The buckets we create will be stored for use in North Carolina.
Coffee, Juice and light breakfast fare will be provided. Plan to help create these important emergency relief kits and enjoy some refreshment and fellowship too!!
