    Helping Hand Food Pantry

    We are helping people in our community to fight hunger.


    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.


    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.



    Can I make a monetary donation?


    You may donate by using our secure online link:

    And Thank You!

    Peace Circle:

    Since September, Peace Circle has been meeting in Memorial Parlor at 10:00 a.m. on the first Tuesday of each month.   Peace Circle meets for Bible study, mission, and fellowship.  We are studying “Celebrating Sabbath, Accepting God’s Gift of Rest and Delight” by Carol M. Bechtel. All women in the congregation are invited to come anytime to a meeting.  For more information, contact Janet Reickel or Sherry Brown.

    Thank You Everyone:

    Thank you to all of you who made donations to the PW Thank Offering in November.  We received a total of $720.00. Thank you for your generosity!

    We need to thank Charles Miller, too, for the wonderful program he did about the Sanctuary’s organ for the women and men who attended our Fall Gathering on Saturday, November 12. Everyone enjoyed the program very much and we all had plenty to eat for lunch after. A big thank you goes out to the women who made the delicious salads and desserts!

    Thank you, also, to all the women, and some of their husbands, who helped put up the

    Christmas decorations after worship on Sunday, November 27.  We very much appreciated everyone’s help.

    The PW Coordinating Team met on December 6.  Since PW was able to hold their Christmas Cookie and Candy Sale to benefit The Second Mile Center of Detroit this year, they voted to make a year-end donation to the Hunger Ministries Program of the Presbytery of Detroit in the amount of $500.00.

    2022-2023 Bible Study:

    This year, we are studying “Celebrating Sabbath: Accepting God’s Gift of Rest and Delight”.  We will consider Sabbath as it is found in passages from Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Matthew, Luke, and Acts. Study guides are available for $10.00.  Please contact Mary Boudreau if you need one.
