Local Mission Opportunities

Backpack Buddies  Throughout the school year we partner with Helena Elementary and Helena Middle to provide  nutritious, self serve food to those children who do not have enough to eat on the weekends.  Opportunities to assist with shopping and packing occur throughout the year. 

God's Cupboard - monthly
We provide non-perishable food items to assist three local food pantries and deliver to them once a month. So bring a jar of peanut butter or a box of cereal the next time you come to church. You may drop off your donations in the wooden box in the narthex.

Firehouse Shelter - monthly
Can you serve a meal with a smile and a word of encouragement? If so, you could join us on the first Thursday of each month when we serve dinner at the downtown men's shelter.  

Knitting Group & Plarn Ministry
 This group meets every Thursday at 2:30 p.m. in room 120. The group prays over each shawl as it is made. The group is also making the plarn mats for the homeless. The shawls are available in the wooden box located in the narthex if you know of someone in need of prayer. 

Soldier Care Packages - monthly
Each month a care package is shipped overseas to those serving in our military. Items that are specifically requested would be: powder laundry detergent, dryer sheets, protein bars, , body wash and deodorant, feminine body wash and shampoo. You may drop off your donations in the box located next to the fellowship hall.

Festival of Three Kings - December 
We provide an annual Christmas party for the Shelby County foster children. The children are entertained with games and crafts so the foster parent can pick up the child's gifts in secret.  

National Mission Opportunities

Appalachian Service Project
We travel to Jonesville, VA once a year in October to help make homes warmer, safer and drier for local residents. If you like to swing a hammer or paint, then join us on this journey into Appalachia.
