Mission Trip to El Salvador
We have had a team of local missionaries travel to El Salvador to serve a small community as they expand their school by adding grades each year. Many North Georgia Conference teams have traveled to El Salvador over the past 8 years, particularly from the LaGrange District, and have built strong relationships.
--In addition to teams from the LaGrange district to El Salvador, we also help support the missionary there, Brian Dubberly.
The Pastor's Pantry was established April, 2019. By January 2020 we have served 233 families including 576 individuals, and we continue to grow.
We have a refrigerator (donated by a member) and a freezer (purchased by our volunteers). These give us a much needed ability to store meat, bread, and other perishables.
Staffed by volunteers, the Pantry's hours of operation are 9:00 -12:30 Mondays. We operate solely on donations. If you would like to make a donation please note a portion of your check for the "Pastor's Pantry". For further information please call Lorraine Berry (404)863-1068
We also support FOCUS and Harris County Family Connections (HCFC) financially. We have several teams who deliver food once a month from FOCUS to those in need and adopt families at Christmas through Family Connections.
FOCUS is a faith based non profit organization dedicated to helping those in need in Harris County, Ga. As Christians united, our mission is to share Christian fellowship and to minister to the material, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of the people of Harris County, Georgia.

Hats, Scarves, & Blankets
During winter of 2019 we distributed warm coats, hats, scarves, and blankets to Pantry guests.
Many of the hats and scarves were hand knit and donated by a friend of the church.
Coats and blankets are donated by church members. These are new or gently used.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, face masks were sewn and donated to those in need.
From time to time, we provide Prayer Buddies to gift to people that are sick or in the hospital. These stuffed animal buddies have been to church with us and been prayed over to carry our prayers to your loved ones.
