A Letter from Director, Tracy
Dear Church Family,
The Lord has truly blessed in the Community Service program over the years. When we first started serving in April 2003, we were service over 45 to 50 families with "Signs of the Times" magazines along with 30 pounds of groceries each month.
As time went on we had a great love for God's people. The church family helped by giving can goods and personal items. Also, each Thanksgiving, church members deliver to families. The school and pathfinder children prepared the grocery bags. Each child went into the community, left a bag at homes to be filled with can, then went back and pick them up within the week. The children were truly happy with the amount of can goods God provided for the Community Service families. God has truly blessed each family each year, all the glory to Him and praise. Also, each year church members get involved in “Adopt A Child For Christmas” program. Each family is so thankful and joyful. We all share hugs and tears for the blessing bestowed upon each child and each family.
We are currently serving 32 families each month. They are receiving 30 to 35 pounds of groceries each month. Each person involved in Community Service is helping someone outside of Community Service by taking clothes to nursing home for friends or family they know. Some are coming to the center to pick up food for friends and delivering it to them. Everyone is sharing love to others by caring for each other. God is truly touching each one's heart to love one another.
Each month we go to the food bank and pick up groceries for the food pantry. The Lord blesses with around 800 to 1200 pounds. The Lord has touched the hearts of others who work behind the scene to help unload and load trucks too.
