CARING FOR OUR NEIGHBOR: Community Programs
Feeding Children: Every Friday here at the church we hand out shelf-stable meals, juices, snacks, and milk for every child under the age of 18. We also try to support the entire family with fruit, vegetables, and other staples we gather.
BIG NEWS! We will be sponsoring a second Feeding Children Location this summer at Eagle Rock Elementary School with the Help of Botetourt County Schools we will begin distributing the needed meals for this area.
Community Garden:We have a community garden that we plant and harvest for the benefit of the community. In the last couple of years, we have harvested over 1,000 pounds of produce to be given to anyone in need, we also have taken produce to the local food pantries for distribution to the greater community.
BIG NEWS! We have installed a water line down to the garden and will be installing drip irrigation for this growing season.
Mini Pantry:Located in the parking lot of the church is a mini pantry that we keep stocked with essentials and staples for families to use. This is 100% funded out of generosity from those in this community.
CAMS BackPack Ministry: We support children with the school for meals for children to take home for weekends.
These are a few ministries that we are blessed to be a part of, if you would like to share in the grace of Jesus and would like to come and be a part of these ministries you are welcomed.
Peace and Grace to you!
