GOD’S WORK, OUR HANDS SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 20, 2020 AND OUR OUTREACH TO THE COMMUNITY!
Our members generously gave to three local agencies on Sundays leading up to the blessing of items on Sept. 20th .
The congregation responded to our ongoing relationship with Port In The Storm (for homeless youth), Brookdale Assisted Living, and Hartley Elementary School. Shown in all three pictures is the chair of our Social Ministry Committee, Judy Caputo, as she presents our donations on site to each of the three agencies.
At each location, we were offered the gratitude of the representatives who greeted us and received donations. Dr. Paul Goricki, the principal of Hartley Elementary, is seen greeting Judy in the school lobby. He explained that because of parent employment issues related to the pandemic, many of the parents they work with cannot afford basic supplies for their children. He expressed his deep appreciation that we were able to respond to their needs. Thus the supplies we collected for Hartley as well as Port In The Storm and Brookdale represented Christ’s love for our community on many levels. Again, thank you for your donations!
