Dear children, let us not love with words or speech, but with actions and in truth. (John 3:18)
Giving back to the community is a big part of who we are as a church. Each year we strive to provide for the needs of those less fortunate in our town and county.
Each Summer, as the new school year approaches, we strive to help our community, especially those with limited resources, get prepared to go back to school. We acquire the school supply list from the local schools and have all the essential items available for the students. We place these things in new backpacks for easy distribution.
Our 2019 backpack give-away is Monday, July 29 at 6-8 pm in the FLC.
Shortly before winter begins, we have a coat give away. We strive to provide coats to anyone who needs them, all the way from babies to adults. The coats are donated primarily by members of our church, but other churches and members of the community also help.
Our Annual Coat Giveaway was held October 26, 2019. A total of 112 coats were given out this year.
