Each month we team up with other area churches and the Real Life Center and participate in the Mobile Food Pantry. At the mobile food pantry we unload a food distribution truck from the Atlanta Food Bank and sort the food into stations. Residents in Fayette County who are in need drive from station to station while we place food in their car and talk to them a little bit at each station. At the end of the day we take down the stations and return the space to a normal parking lot.
Each year we pack Christmas Dinners for local families in need. The dinners are packed at our sanctuary by congregation members. We pack them into a pickup truck and deliver them to the Real Life Center where they can be distributed.
We are happy to serve in the Real Life Center warehouse each month. Some months we sort canned food goods into the year that the foods expire or have expired. Other months we sort clothing that has been donated by members of the community. Other months we help stock the shelves in their food pantry and help move pallets around in their warehouse. Fellowship between our members and the Real Life Center employees is always a priority in the warehouse.
Laundry Soap Project: A frequently requested item is laundry soap. Each quarter we are providing 75 cases of liquid laundry soap to meet the needs of the families served.
We support the Coweta Pregnancy Center in multiple ways. Each year, we provide the pregnancy center with donations of diapers, onesies, and other items of which they have need. We have a small team of individuals who purchase these items and deliver them to the center.
Fellowship Through Service: Summer Lunch Program
The Summer of 2016 will mark our third year with the Summer Lunch Program. We pack lunches for children and youth in Fayette County who qualify for free lunches throughout the summer. Children from Pre-kindergarten through High School are eligible to apply. This program takes place each Friday morning, with deliveries happening between 11:00 - 1:00.
