Raleigh Baptist Association: Fair Chaplaincy
Every year the Fair comes to Raleigh in October, and children and adults alike love walking around the fairgrounds eating cotton candy, tossing rings in an attempt to win a gigantic stuffed animal, and riding the Tilt-a-Whirl for the thrill of the rush. Most times the fair workers are faceless individuals who serve us and we can spend hours at the fair never really seeing them. TCC, in partnership with the Raleigh Baptist Association, desires to serve these fair workers as chaplains by praying with them and counseling them if they so desire. Chaplains serve a 4 hour shift at the fair, and this opportunity is open to all churches who are a part of the Raleigh Baptist Association.

Pregnancy Center Ministry (in partnership with Gateway)
Many universities surround TCC in downtown Raleigh, and one common thread throughout these universities is young women facing unplanned pregnancies. TCC desires to love the young women facing these touch situations as well as to give a voice to the unborn.
This ministry provides four ways for TCC members to care for these women and the unborn:
- Volunteer Team: Women volunteer their time at the center by counseling young women and by providing clerical work as needed.
- Prayer Team: The goal of the prayer team is to love and serve Gateway by having a team of people committed to pray for the Center as well as for the women who are utilizing the Center’s services. Prayer requests are sent out weekly and the team meets once a month to pray together as a team.
- Informal Discipleship Team: The goal of this team is to encourage a woman who is facing an unplanned pregnancy by pointing her to the gospel. A member of TCC will be paired with a client from Gateway in order to assist her with the questions and issues that arise during the nine months of her pregnancy.
- Food Ministry Team: The goal of this team is to serve the staff, volunteers, and clients of Gateway by providing sweet treats to help the clients feel at home at the center.

Raleigh Rescue Mission Ministry
Since TCC desires to assist the poor with both their physical and spiritual needs, TCC places volunteers within the Raleigh Rescue Mission to help them provide hope to the homeless through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Some of the volunteer opportunities include mentoring residents, conversing with residents, serving on the food line, and helping with chapel services.

Morningside Assisted Living Center Ministry
This ministry, which meets at 10am every Saturday at Morningside Assisted Living Center off of Glenwood in Raleigh, seeks primarily to encourage the residents of Morningside who are professing believers to persevere in their faith and to grow in their love for Jesus Christ. In addition, this ministry also desires to lead those who do not profess Christ to repentance.
Incarnational Neighborhood Outreach
Jesus pitched his tent among human beings to provide salvation for the lost. In following his example, Treasuring Christ Church has a desire to see her members display Christ’s love and declare his gospel to those among whom they have pitched their tents. Many members have moved to downtown Raleigh to live among the lost, and those who live in the same neighborhood are working together toward the goal of seeing their neighbors’ eyes opened to the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. To see if there are any TCC members living in your neighborhood with whom to partner for the spread of the gospel, please contact info@tccraleigh,org.
