Serve

Service is fundamental to the Christian Life. There are many ways to serve within the church, and listed below are a few of the projects in which we participate to serve outside our building in the name of Jesus Christ.


Brown Bag Blessings

Our friends from the Commodore Cupboard at LCCC have continued to supply food and personal care

items to our community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are happy to continue our partnership

with them. Our regular Brown Bag Blessings campaign helps to collect non-perishable foods, paper

products and personal hygiene items 3 times each year (winter, spring and fall).

Watch for our next campaign soon!


FEED THE HUNGRY

Twice each month, a group from our church travels to St. Andrew’s church in Elyria to serve a full dinner

meal to struggling members of the community. The church purchases, cooks, serves and cleans up after the

meal on the First Monday and Second Wednesday of each month.  If you are interested in helping out,

contact the church office.


After School Program Volunteers

Each week, after school, we run a program in the barn for High School students. Because of the lack of busing to/from Avon High School, this creates a safe space for students to work on homework, socialize and have a little fun. There are snacks available for purchase, our WiFi is free, and we will have volunteers on hand Monday through Thursday, from 3:15-5:30pm to help. Contact Ellen Adle or the church office to volunteer.


JOYFUL BELIEVERS

Adults with developmental disabilities in group homes today are one of the most overlooked segments of

our population.  On the 3rd Monday of the month, the church hosts a fun hour and half event for members

of local group homes at our church call Joyful Believers. This time includes singing songs, a lesson, crafts,

food and a whole lot of fun.  These friends are a gift to our church and we welcome interested people to

come help make these evening a joyful experience. If you are interested in helping out, contact the office.


Summer Lunch Program

Each summer, we partner with other churches in our area to provide lunch and activities to kids (toddlers to

age 18) who might otherwise go hungry at lunchtime when the school year is over. We prepare food, games

and crafts, and some local businesses join in to provide a fun experience for the kids for one week,

Monday - Friday from 11am-1pm! To participate, contact the church office.


SENIOR SUPPORT TASK FORCE

As we faced COVID-19, it became clear that the most vulnerable group was our senior citizens. We encouraged them to take extra precautions, and launched a task force to meet those needs. 

Seniors who need help, should contact the church. Our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to facilitate.
If you are currently in good health, we need volunteers to help seniors by running to the grocery store, picking up medication from the pharmacy or run other errands for our senior brothers and sisters in Christ. Contact the church to volunteer.
