Joyful Harvest

Food Pantry

March 2018 Food Pantry Service Opportunities
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:00 to 6:30 p.m.

The Helping Hands Pantry is dedicated to providing relief for local families needing support. Every week we offer opportunities for people in our community to pick out groceries from our pantry and we need your help to make that happen.
If you’re looking to make a difference in your community, we have multiple opportunities for you. Our volunteers do a wide range of things – help push carts on pantry days, help clients choose foods, assist with parking, and stock the shelves. Whatever your talent, we can help you make an impact. We ask that all pantry volunteers be a minimum of 12 years of age, and in at least 7th grade. Join us Tuesdays and Thursdays during the month of March, from 3-6:30 p.m. Sign up at the Welcome Table or call the church office at (847) 497-4569.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity! March 3, 8:30 am

Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Their mission is to put God’s love into action by bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. Habitat's ministry is based on the conviction that to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, we must love and care for one another. Our love must not be words only — it must be true love, which shows itself in action. Habitat provides an opportunity for people to put their faith and love into action. Join Joyful Harvest and other groups to make affordable housing and better communities a reality for everyone.

Our next Habitat outing is set for March 3. We'll leave the church at 8:30 a.m. and work until 3:00 p.m.! Sign up at the Welcome Table or call the church office at (847) 497-4569.
