12 Days of Service

New Philadelphia Touches Community

For the fourth consecutive year, we will touch hundreds of lives in the Winston Salem area through 12 Days of Service. This project, created for the holiday season, will carry NPMC church members and friends into homeless shelters, schools and non-profit agencies throughout the community as we seek to share the light and love of Christ. That light will shine even brighter this year as we reach out to new groups in new ways.

Saturday, December 1: On the first day of service, collect over-the-counter cold and flu medicine for Crisis Control Ministry.

Sunday, December 2: On the second day of service, enjoy an Open House and Community Christmas Tree Lighting with our neighbors.

Monday, December 3: On the third day of service, support the Salvation Army as a bell-ringer or with your donations.

Tuesday, December 4: On the fourth day of service, provide breakfast for the guests of the SECU Family House, which offers affordable lodging and support services for adult patients and/or their caregivers who travel to Winston-Salem for medical treatment.

Wednesday, December 5: On the fifth day of service, we’ll be downtown at Winston Square Park holding our first Downtown Lovefeast.

Thursday, December 6: On the sixth day of service, share a traditional lovefeast with the men of Samaritan Inn Shelter.

Friday, December 7: On the seventh day of service, welcome 100 fourth graders and staff from South Fork Elementary School to our church for a time of learning Moravian history, sharing in a lovefeast, and building a putz.

Saturday, December 8: On the eighth day of service, share the gift of music with some of our church members at home as we go Christmas caroling.

Sunday, December 9: On the ninth day of service, collect toilet paper to be given to clients at Sunnyside Ministry and diapers for the folks at North Carolina Diaper Bank.

Monday, December 10: On the tenth day of service, share a Moravian lovefeast and Christmas lunch with the students of the Winston-Salem Street School.

Tuesday, December 11: On the eleventh day of service, we will package the diapers we collected for the North Carolina Diaper Bank. We will also tour the Forsyth Humane Society and package food for the pet pantries.

Wednesday, December 12: On the twelfth day of service, we’ll roll into the Sunnyside Ministry parking lot with over 1,000 rolls of toilet paper to be given to their clients
