Each month, the Mission Committee will highlight one or more of the organizations we support financially, physically, and/or prayerfully.
The June Spotlight Mission is The Portersville Food Pantry.
The Portersville Food Pantry is a non-profit organization which provides food and other items to low income individuals and families in the Portersville, Prospect, and Harmony areas. The Pantry is open for distribution on the first Tuesday (after the first Monday) of every month from 1:30-4:30pm, and they currently serve between 75 and 80 families each month.
They are a 501c organization and receive food from Federal, State, and County sources. These resources have been cut drastically over the last 3 years, so they also reach out to local churches, schools, and individuals to help with their needs. The Food Pantry relies on the community for many donations of non-food items that are not covered by other means. God never ceases to amaze as He provides each month in unexpected ways.
The Mission Committee has designated the following special offering collections to benefit these local ministries:
April 5-12, Community Holy Week Services - Portersville Food and Fellowship for People, Child Evangelism Fellowship, Alpha Omega Center, and City Rescue Mission
April 12, Easter - The Yellow Ribbon Girls
May 10, Mother's Day - Crisis Shelter of Lawrence County
