Why does your gift of time, talent, or treasure matter?


The Red Door/Church of the Advocate, has suspended group gathering , but is still providing meals and community support.  See details:  HERE
How does the gift change the giver?

Your gifts matter because they impact the community as a whole. Welcoming your neighbor and sharing what you have, no matter how small or large, changes us. We often think we have to provide the whole meal, a case of socks, be present with someone for hours, or offer something elaborate or expensive. That is not true. It is the kindness and generosity you bring that is the most important. A kind word, socks, snacks, or a pair of sturdy used shoes, can be such a tremendous gesture not only for the receiver, but for the giver.

Join us to support the Church of the Advocate

 The Red Door Ministry at the Church of the Advocate is a worshiping community of the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina. Our ministry provides clothing and shoes, counseling and work experience, and community meals for our neighbors who are living on the margins. We rely on YOUR kind support to continue this ministry that has served our community for 20 years.

Your gifts SERVE those enduring difficult times or who have never known a life of abundance. This is the kind of abundance that comes not only from the “things” that can be purchased, but the bounty of security and acceptance. When we share our gifts, we begin to view the world in a different way. Others suddenly don’t seem so different or distant anymore. This transformation can happen in an instant or build gradually over time, but it will happen.

When you enjoy a meal, you will think of the meal you served and shared recently with a neighbor at The Red Door. When your feet feel good in new shoes, you will remember those shoes you donated to The Sole Mate Shoe Closet. When you enter the Habitat ReStore or CarePartners Estate Sale to shop or donate, you will have satisfaction in remembering you sponsored a Good Works! Crew member for a day of service at one those organizations that gives back to the community.

At The Red Door, you will NOT find us seeking to help “those less fortunate” or working to fix “broken people”. We humbly stand in service to one another and our community by extending God’s grace and love to all.

"When you help, you see life as weak. When you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole."
