    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 on the first and third Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.* If it is your first time, please come before 12:00 noon. 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 food distribution.

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


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


    How can I donate food?

     

    Generally, you can drop off non-perishable food items to the church Monday through Thursday,

    9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., but please call ahead.

  • Presbyterian Women of Cherry Hill

    Everything we do as an organization and as a community is guided by our PW Purpose, and that includes ministry, resources and relationships.

     

    Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves

             to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,

             to support the mission of the church worldwide,

             to work for justice and peace, and

             to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.

     

    Anyone who supports the Purpose in any way is participating in Presbyterian Women. So even if you’re just learning about Presbyterian Women, there’s a good chance you’re already supporting Presbyterian Women—in spirit or in action! Won’t you consider joining us in person?

     

                Our Presbyterian Women have one circle, The Peace Circle, which meets monthly for Bible study and fellowship. The study for 2021-2022 program year is “What My Grandmothers Taught Me.” Have you thought about Jesus’ grandmothers?   Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary—Matthew names these women for a reason. How might Jesus have heard the stories of his grandmothers? What might the young Jesus have felt as he heard about his family? What might the stories of these women have added to his sense of identity, as part of a particular family in a particular time and place? By exploring these stories together, we will have a richer idea of what the good news is.

     

                Our schedule for 2021-2022 is as follows:

     

                     Tuesday, September 7          10:00 am         Peace Circle

  • Dearborn Pastoral Counselling Center           dpcc Website


    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

    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.

    • 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.

    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.
