Food Pantry

Feeding The Five Thousand (FTFT) is Creekside's local food ministry. FTFT is a food pantry, but with a difference. Instead of just having a room full of food for folks to come and pick up, we have assembled bags that will feed a family of four for a week and deliver them.

Learn More

FTFT operates on our campus and serves residents of Forsyth county. Volunteer opportunities include collecting, sorting, and delivering food items. Delivery volunteers are assigned a client, and the purpose of this relationship is not only to offer them food, but also build Christian relationships through prayer, connection, and invitation to worship at Creekside. Please visit our food pantry today for open house or stop the connection table to learn ways to serve. Contact:

Angel Tree

The Angel Tree gives our congregation an opportunity to reach out to the Feeding the Five Thousand and Teen MOPS families with the love of Christ during the Christmas season. You can make a meaningful difference in the lives of a family by selecting a tag, purchasing the item, then returning the donation and wrapping paper to the tree by December 15. The Angel Tree will be in the atrium beginning December 1st.

Family Promise is a nationally known non-profit organization that supports homeless families.

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’" ~ Matthew 25:37-40
