Ways You Can Help

The benevolence ministry is a rewarding activity to be involved in.  At times it can be demanding and quite perplexing, but seeing the ray of hope in weary eyes makes all efforts worthwhile.  When our church families encounter difficult times, it is our pleasure and our commission to assist.

We are in need of:

  • money for fuel and utility assistance, food, medicines, etc.
  • food items for the food pantry (canned goods, boxed items, meats, and dairy products)
  • personal care items such as body soap or gel, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, lotions, first aid items, toilet paper, deodorant, and feminine hygiene products
