The Outreach Committee serves our church members, the community, and the world through various projects. Within the church we have groups such as Stitch, Sew & Share who meet regularly and make sweaters for “Knit for Kids” as well as prayer shawls and scarves for those going through difficult times. The Issues and Discussions Care Group also regularly donates time by traveling to the Lancaster County Council of Churches and delivering bags of groceries to people living in Farnum Towers, one of Lancaster’s subsidized housing apartment buildings for the elderly. We also provide basic clothing and outerwear to the local food pantries we support.
The first Sunday of each month our children collect money during worship for The Global Food Crisis Fund. Money collected is regularly sent to our denominational headquarters in Elgin IL. This money is used to alleviate world hunger.
Every Sunday church members bring in food items and place them in a grocery cart to help supply the food needs of three local food pantries.
Planned monthly projects for 2018 include:Global Food Crisis Fund Hands Across the Street
