Backpack Buddies is a community-wide program that provides a weekend bag of food for 650 at-risk elementary children. This volunteer program is in its 14th year and is supported by 25+ churches and civic groups. Our church packs and delivers about 100 bags of food to a school each week during the school year.
Trinity House Food Pantry
We have several volunteers who work three-hour shifts for 10:00am-1:00pm once a month helping staff Trinity House which is operated by Trinity Lutheran Church. They work alongside other volunteers to pack and hand out a monthly bag of groceries to those who meet the pantry guidelines. Occasional food drives help support this important service.
Interfaith Shelter of Hope
Each October, a group travels to Camp Horizon, a Methodist camp located near Arkansas City, Kansas to help close down the camp after their summer activities. Both skilled and unskilled tasks are completed during this 4-5 day trip. This is a great chance for fellowship and service.
We also help with financial support to local organizations such as the Alliance Against Family Violence, Catholic Charities, and Saint Vincent’s Clinic.
