    Helping Hand’s Mission Statement

     

    Helping Hand is a program supported by the congregation of this church.  We supply food to people of our community on an emergency basis.  Other area churches and local organizations participate in this program by providing additional food and monetary donations that assist us in keeping the church pantry supplied.  These are our sole sources of assistance to aid those who come to us in need.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    The Helping Hand Food Pantry is open    Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.* If it is your first time, please come before 12:30 p.m. To qualify to receive food from the pantry, a picture I.D. is required.  Only one person per household (per address) is eligible to apply for assistance for the family.  Eligible participants can receive food from the pantry once every other month**.

     

    *may be closed due to bad weather, or a church event; it’s best to call ahead

    **subject to change depending on food supply

         

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Since 1989, the food pantry has served an increasing number of families every year and remains committed to addressing food insecurity in southeast Michigan where, as many as 1 in 7, households struggle to put food on the table.


    During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have maintained our weekly food distribution.

    We developed a contact-less delivery system for the protection of our clients and our workers.

  • Dearborn Pastoral Counselling Center


    The Dearborn Pastoral Counseling Center (DPCC) has been counseling individuals, families, couples, and children since 1984. DPCC is staffed by professionally trained, licensed mental health professionals with a faith based perspective on the human condition. DPCC is a caring member of the Southeast Michigan Community, helping to change our local community and the world one person at a time.


    At DPCC our perspective is founded on the understanding that human growth, development, and fulfillment are derived from a balanced approach to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the individuals. Recognizing that all who come to DPCC for assistance do not share the same faith based values, counselors strive to serve all clients with the same level of care, compassion, and respect. 


    The counselors at DPCC stand ready to help people work through emotional issues, relationships, family issues, developmental issues, and life transitions. 


    The center is approved to accept many insurance providers, including Medicare and Medicaid. Insurance may cover all or a portion of the cost of services from our agency. Those who are not covered by insurance will find our services to be competitive with similar agencies in the area. If clients are without insurance and experiencing financial hardship, DPCC will work with them to find a way to provide the needed services.  DPCC is committed to providing counseling and psychological services for individuals, families and couples, and children at a cost consistent with the client’s ability to pay. 


    For further information, or to schedule an appointment call 313-274- 4570 or visit our website at www.dpcc.us. Our email address dpcc11@att.net


  • CHUP Co-Op Preschool


    Located within Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church, CHUP is a non-profit, cooperative educational organization designed to offer many benefits:

    • Direct parental involvement: parents have an active role in how the school is organized and maintained. 

    • Children learn in a safe and nurturing environment where they are encouraged at their own level. 

    • Lasting friendships are formed among the children, and among their parents as well. 

    • Experienced certified teachers. 

    • Morning and afternoon classes for children ages three and four. 

    • Affordable tuition.


    Our school has three rooms where children can participate: Quiet Room, Creative Room, and Active Room. 


    A typical day begins and ends with Group Time. This includes attendance, number concepts, special helper, weather and the teacher’s description of the day’s activities, songs, fingerplays, stories, etc.  

    The end of the day explores Large Motor Activity Time such as marching to music and dancing. Free play allows the children to explore all three rooms. 


    Children participate in clean-up, enjoy a nutritional snack, and outdoor play if weather permits. Holiday parties and outside enrichment/field trips are also part of our program. 


    Classes are in session September through May and based on the Dearborn Public Schools Calendar. 


    3 year-olds: This class provides a smooth transition from home to school and an introduction to group activity. The class currently meets on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:15 am – 11:15 am. 

     

    4 year-olds: This class follows the structure of the 3’s, with additional concepts introduced and encourages continued social and emotional development through group participation as children explore the world around them. The class currently meets on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 am – 11:15 am.

Bible Study Group

MONDAY AFTERNOON STUDY GROUP

A lively and diverse group of adults gather on Monday afternoons at 3:00 pm for study, discussion, and fellowship. Our topics vary from Bible study to various topical studies. Currently, the group is meeting by Zoom. 

Beginning Monday January 11, the group will engage in a study of Adam Hamilton’s book, Unafraid: Living with Hope in Anxious Times. Most of us would have to agree that we live in an anxious and fearful time. Making matters worse, our hyper fractious era of hate media, divisive politics, and multiplying natural disasters wreak havoc on our state of mind, leaving us troubled and unhappy. Fortunately there’s abundant good news. 

As trusted pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton shows in his book, Unafraid, we can escape the echo chamber of anxiety and dread. With insight, intention and faith, we can learn to overcome what oppresses us, and live with courage and hope. Drawing on fresh research, psychology, and biblical principles, Hamilton helps readers untangle the knots of fear and truly embrace Jesus’s recurring counsel: “Do not be afraid.” For anyone struggling with fear, worry, or anxiety, or who wonders how families and communities can live as peacemakers in troubled times, Unafraid offers an informed and inspiring message full of practical solutions. 

Copies of the book are available in the church office for $10.00. Please contact Mark Phillips for a copy of the book or for more information.
