Missions, both local and global, are at the heart of Greystone’s purpose. Through our support of Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, CBF-North Carolina, Raleigh Baptist Association and various other local agencies, we are empowered to share God’s love both here at home and abroad.
Alliance Medical Ministry
Alliance Medical Ministry is a faith-led medical ministry serving the uninsured working poor in need of affordable care. They provide continuity of care which leads to fewer ER visits and better health outcomes. Staff and volunteers provide primary and specialty care, pharmacy services, free screenings, health classes, and partners with Interfaith Food Shuttle on their garden which provides free produce to patients. GBC members have provided medical providers, help with fundraising events, building updates and garden maintenance.

CBF Together for Hope
Launched in 2001 by CBF Global, Together for Hope (TFH) is a long-term commitment to working with people in 20 of the nation’s poorest counties in order to affect change and break the cycle of economic disparity. The hope is that communities will be transformed as will the churches and individuals who serve in these focal counties. This summer we will once again send a mission team to Helena-West Helena, Arkansas as part of the All Church Challenge. We will work with CBF field personnel, to provide a camp for children and home repairs for those in need.
Cedar Point Ministries & ESL
The Cedar Point apartments in North Raleigh are home to refugees from all over the world. We are able to serve the community of refugees in many ways: tutoring the children, providing basic needs, transporting them to and from medical appointments and helping them adapt to a new culture. It’s our joy to minister the love of Christ in our relationship with these friends. Greystone Baptist Church is a proud partner of Cedar Point Ministries.
The Clothing Ministry of First Baptist Church
The Clothing Ministry of First Baptist Church began in 1983 as an expression of the church’s concern for our neighbors in need. This ministry is a volunteer-run, church and community supported organization whose goal is to provide clothing for individuals and families experiencing financial difficulties. The Clothing Ministry strives to provide adequate clothing for families, homeless persons, those in transition — either from relocation or re-entry into the workforce — or any persons with an identifiable need. The Clothing Ministry also offers each volunteer the opportunity to serve … giving and receiving blessings out of the abundant love by which Christ has loved us.
The purpose of this ministry is to show God’s love and care to all who come to the church’s door. The Clothing Ministry is open on Mondays from 10am – 12pm (except for holidays and inclement weather). Each guest is able to receive a basket of clothing of their choosing, along with a new pair of socks and underwear for themselves and members of their family. Clothing is offered for men, women, and children, and inventory availability is based on community donations, so some supplies are limited accordingly. Each week 60-80 members of our community shop for 120-140 family members. Greystone partners with the clothing ministry by collecting new and gently used clothing for men, women and children in the bins on the covered walkway at the preschool area. We also have church members who volunteer to help organize and sort donated clothing.

Kid’s Mission Garden
Since being established in 2015, our church garden has grown produce for North Raleigh Ministries. For the past two years, it has been maintained mainly by the children involved in Wednesday night missions. They have enjoyed planting seeds, tending the garden, and harvesting the produce. We have produced vegetables in the spring, summer, and fall planting seasons. We have recently expanded our garden to include a compost area as well. In addition, we have a new bed which is in a better position to grow beautiful, luscious tomatoes!

NeighborHealth’s mission is serving Christ by loving our neighbors through the practice of excellent, compassionate and accessible healthcare.

Greystone Baptist Church is a proud partner of NeighborHealth.

Wyatt Ministries Welcome House
Kim and Marc Wyatt are Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Global Missions Field Personnel. In this ever changing day of global migration the new ‘foreign mission field’ really is our own home town. The Wyatt’s Ministry seeks to empower the Kingdom efforts of churches, mission organizations and individuals reaching out to refugees, immigrants, international students, visiting scholars and their families and those unfortunately caught in modern day slavery – the trafficked. Greystone Baptist Church is proud to partner with Kim and Marc in an effort to “be good neighbors” to folks in our community who are coming to the Triangle from foreign countries.
