Stokesdale Christian Church has a strong tradition of service. An example of our service to the community is through Good Samaritan Ministries. We partner with other area churches in this outreach program to provide help to those in need through a food pantry, health and dental assistance, and monetary aid when needed. Other examples of our outreach ministries are the variety of activities held at local nursing homes, and sponsorship of Camp Agape, a camp attended by underprivileged children. We actively support disaster relief and humanitarian efforts throughout the nation and the world.
Church sponsorship provides a week-long camp experience for at-risk and underprivileged children ages 8–11. The camp offers Bible Study, crafts, and a regular worship life. The recreational programs enrich a child’s summertime activities and foster confidence and teamwork. Camp Agape is affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in North Carolina.
Christmount is a retreat, camp and conference center whose mission is to provide opportunities in the heart of the mountains for Christian hospitality, rest for the soul and renewal for the journey.
