Stuffed Bunny

Has the true meaning of Easter
gotten a little fuzzy?


Give your children more than bunnies and baskets this year.
Give them a miracle!

Come be with us on Easter as we celebrate
the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Food Pantry

March 2020 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.
