Reaching Outside the Congregation:

Serving Our Savior- “SOS”

     Outreach ministry to the poor in our county. We meet Wednesdays from 1-3 and listen to the situations and stories of any and all who come through our doors. We are able to help with utility bills, food, and clothing. We also help with gasoline and non-narcotic prescription drugs. All of the money we use through this ministry is from second mile giving of our congregation. We generally help with around $40,000 per year and give out over 11 tons of food. Volunteers are needed to help in the clothes closet, food pantry, and during the interview process. Contact Cara Hoffman for more information.


Clothes Closet/Food Pantry

     These ministries fall under the SOS umbrella. Volunteers are always needed to keep these ministries going. Contact Cara Hoffman for more information.


Bread of Life

     BOL is a community organization trying to meet the physical and spiritual hunger in our community. BOL is essentially a “soup kitchen” where hot meals are served three times a week – on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Over 13 churches and organizations host the meals each month. Our church serves a meal every third Saturday of the month. Help is always needed in providing the food for the meals as well as providing music/devotion/ or something for spiritual nourishment. Contact Cara Hoffman for more information.

Back to School Fair

Each summer the church and community join forces and resources to help prepare the children of our county for a new year in school.  Our back to school fair is the largest single event outreach we host each year.  In 2012 the fair gave complete school supplies, back packs, hair cuts, toiletries, etc. to over 700 children of our county.  This event is an amazing example of how several churches, groups, and individuals work together to help others.
