Upcoming & Current Outreach Activities

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

Food of the Month: Canned Fruit and Applesauce.

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 9th, 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 adults' underwear and place them in the big green basket in the commons area. We will deliver them to the Open Door Mission.
 
2018 Dates: July 29th, September 30th, December 30th
 

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.

Current News:

 

Good things come in small packages . . . and, during the summer, we have a couple of opportunities to contribute to those “package” projects!

July 29 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.

In addition, our commitment to Atria Bible Study continues during the summer. Each Thursday, I (often along with Neva Benson & Gale Huber) head to Atria to present a 30-minute program, reading scriptures and sharing a few life-application stories. If you think you might like to become involved in this uplifting ministry, contact Karen Pearson (392-3892 or email kgp@rochester.rr.com). You could come along one week to see if you might enjoy participating. We have a small but faithful group of residents who love seeing us each week!

 

Matthew 17:20: “I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”

 

Thanks, as always, for your faithful support!
