New Philadelphia is committed to serving our neighbors by being active in the surrounding community of South Fork and beyond.
Members participate in annual events that support South Fork Elementary, such as our Scholastic Book Fair and Thanksgiving Feast.
The Blessing Box, erected in May 2020, has become a significant part of our community outreach, providing food staples to hungry families and individuals. We also welcome and appreciate the active role neighbors outside of our congregation have taken in helping us keep the Box filled.
Usually scheduled during the first Twelve Days of December, 12 Days of Service is a time of ramped-up community involvement from our congregation. The activities are varied so that everyone – young and old, groups, families and individuals – can participate and connect with those in need right here in Winston Salem. Some of the organizations who have benefitted from 12 Days include: Sunnyside Ministry, South Fork Elementary, Samaritan Ministries, Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministry, and City with Dwellings, just to name a few. 12 Days of Service strengthens our church’s impact as we start asking, “How can we serve like Jesus?”
