We are active with several local ministries. Here’s the info in case you want to get involved…
FRANKLIN COUNTY HOMELESS SHELTER 221 S Main Street, Chambersburg
CURRENT OUTREACH: Every other Thursday night
Ever since our Christmas party, we’ve had a heart-to-heart connection with the residents and staff of the Shelter. Every other Thursday, we take dinner (recently, such treats as authentic southern Gumbo, or Taco Casserole) in to share with the residents. We laugh the whole time, building relationships, sometimes find opportunities for prayer and encouragement to them, and we flood the place with the love of Father and the joy of the Lord. We love these people and stay connected with many even after they leave the Shelter. You and/or your family is welcome (bring your kids!)
To ask questions or join the party, contact Jocelyn Pence and Kendal Trader.
FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 225 S 2nd St, Chambersburg
CURRENT OUTREACH: Feeding the hungry, every Thurs pm, 5:30-7:30pm
The people of First United Methodist invite the hungry of our city to a free dinner. Their members cook and serve this meal, beginning at 5:30pm. Volunteers should come willing and able to serve wherever needed, as well as assist with cleanup afterwards, which is usually completed by 7:30pm.
To ask questions or volunteer, contact Sherri Browning.
WHO CALLED OUT Departs WHO bi-weekly to downtown Chambersburg
Jesus has commissioned us to go onto the streets to manifest the kingdom of heaven. What adventures we have joyfully stepping out by faith to meet with Him in the city! It’s amazing to see heaven open by simply handing a stranger a bottle of water & asking “Is there anything we can pray with you for?” WHO Called Out is an organic outreach that welcomes you & your ideas.
To ask questions or participate, contact Kendal Trader.
NETWORK MINISTRIES 10 Redwood Street, Chambersburg
CURRENT OUTREACH: See below; several opportunities available
This high-impact ministry got its start in 1993, seated in the heart of the most vulnerable kids in our city. Our very own Ben Lefever and Denver Martin serve on the board. Current needs include volunteers in the after-school programs for elementary and middle-school students, help with the gardening program (the kids sell produce at our local farmers market in the summer), as well as behind-the-scenes volunteers. This is highly rewarding work. If you want to learn more or see photos, check out http://www.network-ministries.org/.
