Creative Peacemakers is an enrichment experience for children, K-4, primarily from the Deaverview Apartments, in collaboration with Children 1st (CIC). The after-school program focuses on bringing peace to our communities by helping children practice peacemaking using cooperative play and creative expression (yoga, drawing, weaving, painting, sculpture, dance, music, collage, gardening, cooking, and more).

Asheville Area Habitat for humanity
Founded in 1983, Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity was the first Habitat affiliate in North Carolina. Through Habitat homeownership and home repair programs, nearly 1,700 adults and children in Buncombe County have achieved the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better future. A decent place to call home and an affordable mortgage enables Habitat homeowners to save more, invest in education, pursue opportunities and have greater financial stability.
Center for Spiritual Wisdom
The Center serves all seekers — whoever they are and wherever they are on their spiritual journeys. The Center’s offerings promote compassionate action and transformative growth in relationship to God, neighbor, self, creation, and cosmos through the integration of practice, learning, engagement, and reflection. We emphasize experiential learning through spiritual practices, real-world engagement, peer teaching, and other learning methods.
The Red Door Ministry
This ministry was established in 1997, making it one of the earliest to serve the marginalized and outside people in the downtown area. On Sundays, we celebrate the Holy Eucharist and offer a safe and sacred space for our congregation to enjoy conversation, creative expression through art, access to our First Aid station, The Basics Supply Closet and our Sole Mate Shoe Closet. A community meal is shared following our celebration and everyone is welcome to join us.
Sharing House is a source of compassion and crisis assistance for our low-income (up to 200% above poverty line) neighbors in Transylvania County, where we offer food and fresh produce, gently-used clothes, rent and utility assistance, household goods, camping equipment, hot showers, a safe place to share stories of struggle... and a refuge of social interaction. We also empower people who seek paths to self-reliance, through special programs such as "Wheels to Work" and the Bridges Out of Poverty mentoring class called "Getting Ahead".
Lake Logan camp & conference center
