Community Ministries engaged...

In the late spring & summer of 2010, West Edgecombe sponsored a community garden where communities members could plant & harvest their own vegetables or those who needed could get what was available at the West Edgecombe Vegetable Stand (you pick or they pick)

Mission Projects for the Hospital

If your Sunday School class, mission group or church wants to take this as a project, you are welcome to schedule and deliver your kits, gifts, etc to the NRBA and our Director of Missions, Rev. John Hamm will personally deliver them to the hospital [or maybe you can take a day & go yourselves with him as your guide!]

John serves on the committee for the NC Baptist Convention that is attached to the hospital and would love to go with you as you deliver the special goodies you have collected to make the children who are patients, their siblings and their parents know that they are loved and cared for!

Brenner Children's Hospital - Pediatric Oncology Clinic - The staff maintains a 'Treasure Chest' to provide small gifts for children after painful procedures. Items needed for younger children are AGE APPROPRIATE which include matchbox toys, Beanie Babies, small box of Legos, crayons, coloring books, finger paint, bubbles and craft packages. For adolescents, the needs are school supplies, pens, notepads, stationary, picture frames, hair bows, and {wild colors} fingernail polish. Also a group might want to host a 'crafts program' for the children in the Clinic on a particular day or season of the year.

Brenner Children's Hospital - The following items are needed for families of hospitalized children:

Personal Care Kits - comb, toothbrush and travel size toothpaste, shampoo and liquid soap/body wash. The kits can be individualized for men or for women. Church groups often include their name and a Scripture verse in the kits.

Sibling Bags - coloring books, crayons and a children's book, Beanie Babies, puzzles, art pads/pencils and books for older children . These are given to the brothers and sisters of the hospitalized children. They often include a puzzle book for parents.

Thank you very much for prayerfully considering these mission projects to serve patients and their families in need at Baptist Hospital. Please contact Rev. Paul Mullen, Director of Church & Community Relations, NCBH for more information. (336) 716-3027.
