You're welcome to join us!
St. Peter's Helping Hands Outreach Committee decided that the committee will focus on one global project per year, or another project that reaches out to another area of our country and continue to serve the community through local outreach projects.
The committee determined that the first global project will be Food for the Poor. Food for the Poor, first introduced by guest preacher, Reverend Bruce Potteiger, is a charity organization that works with those in extreme poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean. Food for the Poor not only provides aid to those living in extreme poverty, but also provides support for a future for self-sustenance.
There have been donation boxes for congregation members to take home during the Lenten season to collect monetary donations. The donations will be totaled up to purchase an item that will be sent to where it is needed the most. Further information is available at foodforthepoor.org.
Our first local community project will be a collection drive of tissue boxes for our local nursing homes. Many of the nursing homes have expressed a simple need of tissues for their residents. The committee will be hosting Operation Bless You Boxes for the congregation to donate boxes of tissues. There is a collection bin in the parlor area when you enter the church. The Bless You Boxes will be collected for the month of May.
If you have any questions regarding the outreach projects, please see a committee member.
