GOD'S HANDS 

Our God's Hands program is made up of two main activities to help the homeless community:  donations to local shelters (God's Hands I), and hot meals delivered directly to the homeless (God's Hands II).

God's Hands I - Shelter Needs

The God’s Hands I program helps the shelters by donating items such as personal hygiene and children’s activity items.  A list of needs will be posted here every month.  The items will be collected by the end of the month and delivered to the shelters at that time. 

Items may be dropped off at our Church, Saturday mornings between 9:30 am and 12:30 pm. To support this program financially,  you may go to Give Online and select the "God's Hands I" category. 

 

The needs for May 2021 are: 

Toilet paper

Chapstick

Antacid

Lotion

Paint canvases for kids

 

God's Hands II - Hot Meals for the Homeless

We are excited to announce our new God's Hands service - Hot Meals! The God's Hands II program provides cooked meals delivered directly to homeless persons in our community.  The meals are delivered every other Friday afternoon between 5 pm and 7 pm. 

To support this program,  you may go to Give Online and select the "God's Hands II" category.
