Servant’s Heart Worship Center hosts Community Outreach Day

Servant’s Heart Worship Center is partnering with CityServe of the Triad to help local families with assistance that will provide free groceries, clothing, shoes and household items. The event, called “Community Outreach Day” will take place Oct. 22 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Servant’s Heart Worship Center, 275 Parris Ave. in High Point. 

Hiawatha Hemphill, senior pastor of Servant’s Heart Worship Center says events like this are an opportunity to serve and meet new people in the community. Hemphill adds these events are at the heart of the church’s mission statement that says we are “a church with a heart to serve God and people.”

The CityServe distribution model is based on a HUB to POD supply chain. The Renaissance Church in Jamestown operates a HUB that serves as a distribution site for food boxes and goods-in-kind (donated by Amazon, Walmart, Costco and others) to local churches in its geographical region, also known as PODs. Servant’s Heart Worship Center operates as A POD to help meet the needs of its neighborhood.
