Food Drive: We will keep our Food Drive on-going. Please drop your non-perishables and PPE in the metal bin in the foyer.

Small Food Pantry: The Youth has embraced this item. They dug a hole and set a pole. The committee will be putting together the small pantry. Youth will put it together and install.

Message Board: The message board has been installed! We are filling it with resources!

We are connecting with Community Partners and finding ways to volunteering with other vibrant and active ministries that are already serving the homeless in our area. We are dedicated to pursue the "Least of These" in our community. Thank you for those that have participated over the last year - as we look forward to a rich 2022 reaching those around us!!
