St. Teresa of Calcutta once said “We should not serve the poor like they were Jesus. We should serve the poor because they are Jesus.” As Christians, we are called to serve the most vulnerable among us, including those in poverty. Christ could not have been clearer in this command, and that is what the HELP Committee strives to do.
The primary ways the HELP Committee does this is by providing a Thanksgiving Meal and Christmas Meal and gifts for families in need in our area. Working in conjunction with the Shepherd’s Gate Food Pantry, they organize an effort to deliver Thanksgiving meals and additional groceries on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, as well as gifts and a Christmas meal with additional groceries to families on the Saturday before Christmas.
This is a significant effort and requires many volunteers. If you would like to help serve the less fortunate with the HELP Committee, click here for more information. For more about this ministry, check out the bulletin this weekend!
