We have several different outreaches that we participate in.
Our main outreach is helping out at our local food pantry; the Christian Cupboard in Girard, PA; which serves approximately 200 people in the Girard/Lake City area. Grace’s collection for the month of February is boxed meals(Hamburger helper); but they will take anything that has not been opened and has not reached the expiration date. They gladly accept toiletries, paper products (paper towels, toilet paper, Kleenex, napkins), pretty much anything that food stamps don’t cover! As always, thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness towards our fellow brothers and sisters in need!
Our church women known as the ECW hosts a monthly bingo at Pleasant Ridge Manor in Girard; the residents really enjoy this monthly outreach. Every year, the ECW also have a warm up center in the hall for Halloween, we pass out treats, coffee, cider, hot cocoa. We recently started to participate in the Teal project by providing allergy free alternative treat bags to some children. We have received several compliments over the years; as many parents appreciate that we provide an area from the children to rest, warm up, or use the restroom. Twice a year the ECW provides a seasonal rummage sale at discount prices for the community.
