In his first message as our Senior Pastor, Herb asked, “Do We Really Want to Be Great?” The answer to that question is “YES!” because we are all great when we serve others in His name. We encourage families to find a way to serve individually and together. Providence supports the Midwest Food Bank, the Real Life Center, Fayette Pregnancy Resource Center, FireChaplain.org, Square Foot Ministry and many other worthwhile organizations, and each ministry area provides opportunities for service throughout the year. 
We send food home each week so students receiving free/reduced breakfast and lunch do not go hungry over the weekend. Items needed: Canned Beef Stew; Boxed Mac & Cheese; Canned or plastic Pasta Sauce; Fruit Cups; Tortillas; Dry Pasta; Canned Pastas; Packets of Mashed Potatoes/Rice ; PB & J in plastic jars; Pancake Mix  & Syrup; Cornbread Mix; Cereals; small canisters of oatmeal/grits; canned meats. Please bring items to the plastic box on the bench by the back doors. Thank you!

Watch for info about our Square Foot Ministry home builds for 2021. Exciting progress is being made, so plan to be a part of it! SFM homes are “a hand up, not a hand out,” because qualified homeowners: participate in building their home; have a steady job history and the ability to pay a zero-interest mortgage, taxes and insurance on their home; build equity which can help break the cycle of poverty; provide a safe, stable home environment for their family; develop pride of ownership which lifts up the entire neighborhood.
