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, AV Pride, Square Foot Ministry and many other worthwhile organizations, and each ministry area provides opportunities for service throughout the year.

Backpack Ministry Family Service Opportunity 
  Children who receive free meals at school take home a backpack of food so they do not go hungry over the weekend. Each week Providence small groups and families are filling backpacks, which each feed 2-4 children/teens. This is a wonderful, tangible teaching opportunity so our children understand that even in “the Bubble,” there are other children who need their help. Non-perishable food items help us fill the pantry, which will be used as needed: canned pasta; dry pasta & canned pasta sauce; plastic jars of peanut butter & jelly; tortillas; cans of refried & black beans; graham/saltine crackers; canned soups & meats;  fruit cups, pudding cups, applesauce, granola bars, cereal, oatmeal & grits. Please email Leslie if you are interested.
Fayette Samaritans
Bring non-perishable items for the Fayette Samaritans’ Food Pantry to the Missions Box by the back lobby of the main building. Ongoing needs:
canned goods, cereals, peanut butter & jellies, soap, toothpaste, deodorant,
pasta & pasta sauces, soup, oatmeal, soap,potatoes, shampoo, diapers, dish crackers, oatmeal,Mac & Cheese. August & February are our special push months!
