This is Raleigh Dream Center’s primary way of changing the atmosphere and building transformational relationships by being present in local neighborhoods. The strength of Adopt-A-Block is its ability to build strong, lasting relationships within the community that will allow us to speak into someone’s potential and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Adopt-A-Blocks happen every 2nd and 4th Saturdays and each event lasts 2 hours where we knock on doors, provide groceries for households, pick up trash, play with children, and have intentional Gospel conversations. It’s family friendly, so kids are welcome. Our Adopt-A-Block program provides over 10,000 pounds of groceries each month at no cost to under-resourced communities.
KidzJam is RDC’s after school program that exists to provide a safe space for kids to have fun and learn about God. We provide a snack, homework help, a Bible lesson and more. If you are passionate about children, speaking into their potential, and sharing God’s truths with them, please join our team!
COMMUNITY BIBLE STUDIES
As we build relationships, we also work to develop and lead Bible studies and mentoring programs in the local communities. As people in the communities accept Christ through our other outreach programs, the weekly Bible Study is where people can grow and nurture their relationship with Jesus and other believers.
More and more, the face of homelessness includes families, seniors and veterans. RDC consistently serves at Moore Square, offering hygiene products, warm clothing (seasonally), and a variety of care packages.
SUMMER READING PROGRAMS
These programs provide a place of learning and fun for kids through playing, creating and reading. Our goal is to provide physical and spiritual support for children and families in under-resourced communities. The program consists of tutoring, games/crafts, a catered lunch, and a bible lesson. The program is held Monday- Wednesday all throughout the summer in 3 different communities.
SHORT TERM MISSIONS
If your church, business, school or group is looking for various service projects, then we can work with you to do a specific outreach in our inner-city communities. We would assign you a Dream Center Outreach Leader that would provide you all the details and serve alongside your group.
OUR FUTURE: RESIDENTIAL DISCIPLESHIP PROGRAM
We believe the power of life change is found through the message of Jesus Christ. We are praying for a permanent property for RDC so that we can have a place to begin restoring broken lives from life-controlling issues. Lives will be restored through daily Bible reading, weekly scripture memorization, character trait studies, weekly bible study lessons, structured work therapy, daily classes, and mentoring by our Resident Advisors and staff where Biblical principles are learned to be applied in daily application. Adults 18-59 will be able to participate in our one-year Adult Discipleship Program (based on the Los Angeles Dream Center program).
