“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Matthew 25:35-36
We are a Fair Trade church. We serve Fair Trade coffee after the worship service each Sunday, and we offer Fair Trade Teas and Coffees for sale year-round. In October, we host our Annual Fair Trade Sale.
For two years, our church has organized a free community meal for the less fortunate. Many other religious organizations and individuals join us in providing food, clothing, hygiene kits and other items.
The Pastor’s Discretionary Fund is used to offer a bit of aid to our members and other people who come to our church for help during particularly hard times.
A 2009 book discussion group on “The Climate Diet” spurred our development of Green Initiatives within our church.
We stockpile individual frozen meals to provide to people in need or people grieving a death in the family, or other urgencies.
