Upcoming & Current Outreach Activities

Thanks for ALL you do, making a difference in our community!

Food of the Month: Canned meat, Canned Pasta, and Canned Fruit

Please join us each month as we help to stock the shelves at the Greece Ecumenical Food Shelf.  Your donations of food or monetary donations (Funds for Food buckets) help to feed our neighbors in the Greece and Charlotte areas.

 

Salem Nutritional Center: Monday, July 10th, 9:00am—2:00pm

Please join us for a morning of serving. Meet/leave Church at 9:00.  At 9:30, lunch prep begins.  Serve 100—150 hungry people at noon. Return to the church at 2:00pm.   We need 10 people there each time. It is a very satisfying ministry. See Deacon Dee for details.

 

 


Ongoing Outreach Activities

FIFTH SUNDAY of the month is Undie Sunday

Please bring your donations of new children's underwear and place them in the big green basket in the commons area. We will deliver them to six area elementary schools.
 
2017 Dates: July 30th, October 29th, & December 31st.
 

F.I.S.H. Volunteers Needed

F.I.S.H. urgently needs volunteers willing to pledge one day a month to help the elderly and disabled in the Greece & Charlotte areas with transportation for medical appointments. If  you can help, please call 453-2370.
 

Greece Food Shelf Items Needed

Because food prices have risen and Food Stamp amounts have been cut, all kinds of non-perishable foods are still needed for the Food Shelf, especially tuna, hot & cold cereal, canned pasta, dry pasta, canned meat, canned fruits, peanut butter and jelly. In addition, they can use toilet paper, toothpaste, dish detergent, and shampoo. Further, they need volunteers to deliver non-perishable food to people who live alone and need "emergency food." If you are willing to help, please call Ann Walker, 865-0870.   See Food of the Month selections above.
 

 


“School’s out for sum-mer!”  However, it’s never too early to start planning ahead.  

July 30 is our next Undie Sunday; all sizes are needed for the start of the next school year. Over and over, the nurses send thanks to all of you who generously donate to their “undies drawers.”

Beginning in mid-August, you will see our big school supplies boxes stationed in the commons, ready to be filled with spiral & composition   notebooks, 2-pocket folders, #2 pencils, crayons,  markers, colored pencils, rulers, erasers, backpacks, glue sticks, tissues, and Zip-loc bags. A week or so after the start of school, this  collection will be delivered to West Ridge, Holmes Road, Autumn Lane, Longridge, English Village, and Brookside.

On Thursday mornings, we (Neva Benson, Gale Huber, Karen Pearson) continue to lead a short Bible Study for Atria residents—such an         uplifting ministry for us as well as those who attend! In addition, Pastor Matt has begun an interfaith time with residents at the new assisted living/memory care facility, The Village at Mill Landing.

Sometime in the next few weeks, check out the bulletin board outside of Matt’s office to see notes from various organizations, thanking us for the contributions/donations we have made throughout the year.

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations . . . .” (Matthew 28: 19) Through our ongoing support of multiple community projects, we are making a  noticeable difference; we are spreading the good news.

“To God be the glory; great things he has done.”
