Crestwood participates in several local, national, and international missions. On the local front, we offer a variety of services through our church and the Pilot Mountain Baptist Association.
Bread of Life Food Pantry – helps families in the community with food who fail to meet government qualifications for assistance. This ministry is a wonderful way to help end hunger in our neighborhood. The Pilot Mountain Baptist Association, located at 407 Petree Road, Winston Salem NC 27106, (336.830.8189) annually hosts food pantry events. For details of the next event, click on the Bread of Life link above to visit the PMBA’s website.
Dental Bus Ministry – this is one of Crestwood’s most popular ministries. We sponsor the Dental Bus annually through the Baptist Men of the Southern Baptist Convention. The bus offers free dental care, including fillings and extractions to those who do not have dental insurance, and is staffed by local dentists and dental assistants who volunteer their services.
In 2019, the Dental Bus Ministry was held September 27. The ministry served 12 patients, who had various serious issues. Special thanks to our dentists for their volunteer service: Dr. Patrick Michael, Dr. Taylor Hewitt, Dr. Suzanne Newsome, and Dr. Angela Casaar. We wish to also thank Stanleyville Pharmacy for supplying the pre- and post-op meds for the patients. To all the volunteers who gave of their time and talents, we offer our sincere thanks.
Northeast Toy Store – On December 7, 2019, Crestwood will host our 2nd annual Northeast Toy Store. Dates for sign-up for families in need can be located on our site’s UPCOMING EVENTS page. We welcome all donations of new and unwrapped toys, so that we may help families in need. Please consider how you may help with this important ministry. You may also send tax-deductible monetary gifts, designated to the Toy Store, and we will purchase gifts and gift cards as needed. If you donate through PushPay, you will find an option for Toy Store on the drop-down. For more information, please contact Angie Stewart, Toy Store Coordinator, at 336-767-0096. Thank you!
Change4Change program – throughout our church we have placed piggy banks into which church members drop their loose change. In addition, all loose change dropped in the offering plate is collected. Each fall, we use these donations to help a family in need.
