The Sparrow's Nest

The Sparrow's Nest is a ministry that provides food and clothing to anyone in need, in and around Cherokee County, NC.  The Sparrow's Nest is open to the public every Monday and Wednesday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon. 

At the present time, we are serving over 600 people every month with food purchased from the Manna Food Bank in Asheville, NC and clothing donated by members of our church.

The Sparrow's Nest is located in a building directly behind the church.

Community Lunch

Murphy First Baptist Church provides a wonderful free lunch to anyone willing to come to the Fellowship Hall on Mondays from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. There is a dedicated group of volunteers that work each week.  Members are encouraged to volunteer to help cook, clean, socialize, and have a good time in the Lord.

At the present time, we are serving over 100+ people every Monday.  Any donations or ministry assistance would be appreciated.

The lunches are served in our Fellowship Hall, located in the back of the church building.
