Domestic & World Outreach Initiatives
Haiti Mission Trip
The Broad Street Clinic was founded in 1993 by county physicians and other concerned citizens as a private non-profit, free health clinic serving the adult residents of Carteret County and surrounding areas. Its mission is to provide access to medical care for the uninsured low income population in our community. The Clinic is a qualified, non-profit organization and is not supported by Federal or State programs. The clinic operates solely on grants and private and public donations. Donations stay in our community to assist those who render the clinic’s many services.
Episcopal Relief & Development
Episcopal Relief & Development works with Church partners and other local organizations to save lives and transform communities worldwide. We rebuild after disasters and empower people to create lasting solutions that fight poverty, hunger and disease. Working in close to 40 countries, our programs impact the lives of approximately 3 million people around the world.
Our mandate is taken from Jesus’ words found in Matthew 25. All of Episcopal Relief & Development’s international development programs work toward achieving the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which aim to cut extreme global poverty in half by 2015. We use the MDGs as benchmarks to evaluate our progress.
Episcopal Farmworker Ministry
God teaches us that we are called to respond for the dignity and justice for all human beings and Episcopal Farmworker Ministry (EFwM) is working with such principles to ensure a better future for farmworkers and their families. Through education, the protection of their human rights, and the care of their bodies and souls, EFwM works to change the world and the system that keeps farmworkers in poverty and subhuman conditions. EFwM serves 47 migrant labor camps in Sampson, Harnett and Johnston counties in North Carolina.
Dominican Republic Scholarships
The Episcopal Church Women coordinate this scholarship project for our companion diocese in the Dominican Republic, sponsored by our own diocese. It costs $350 to send a child to school for one year. The Episcopal Schools provide hope for those living in poverty; the goal is to provide a quality education.
United Thank Offering
United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of The Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through United Thank Offering, men, women, and children nurture the habit of giving daily thanks to God. These prayers of thanksgiving start when we recognize and name our many daily blessings. Those who participate in UTO discover that thankfulness leads to generosity. United Thank Offering is entrusted to promote thank offerings, to receive the offerings, and to distribute the UTO monies to support mission and ministry throughout The Episcopal Church and in invited Provinces of the Anglican Communion in the developing world.
Interfaith Refugee Ministry
Interfaith Refugee Ministry is a refugee resettlement organization whose mission is to encourage parishes, congregations, and other potential co-sponsors to offer hospitality, welcome, and a supportive network of resources for both refugees and those who assist them.
Interfaith Refugee Ministry’s task is to assist refugees with the basic necessities when they first arrive in New Bern and surrounding areas. This includes, but is not limited to, assistance with housing, food, clothing, employment, learning English, and cultural orientation.
The ultimate goal is to help refugees become self-reliant, emotionally secure and culturally adjusted in their new home.
Church Periodical Club
The purpose of the Church Periodical Club is to spread the written word throughout the world. Since its beginnings more than 120 years ago, the CPC has provided educational, spiritual, and liturgical resources to many communities within our nation and around the world. It is the only organization in the Episcopal Church dedicated solely to providing free literature and related materials, both religious and secular, to people all over the world who need and request them and who have no other source for obtaining them. Prayer Books, books for seminarians, educational materials, medical textbooks, agricultural manuals and books for those in local and global mission are some of the publications The Church Periodical Club supplies. Today this agency also provides funds for audio and video tapes, as well as computer software.
