Reaching Our Community

Jesus said, "that the harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. Pray that God would send out laborers." At Yeamans Park, we answer the Lord's call to be disciples for our community

       FOOD PANTRY       

The Food Pantry will open for additional hours (5:00 – 7:00 p.m.) on Wednesday June 6, 2018

JUNE ITEM OF THE MONTH:
Jelly, Jam or Preserves

If you’d like a complete list of the most needed items in the pantry, please see Jane Smith. All items can be placed on the cart in the hallway of Fellowship Hall.

                   Hands of Christ

Since its beginning in 2003, the Hands of Christ ministry has provided school clothes and school supplies to 52,647 disadvantaged children. Through distributions at fourteen sites, plus Clinton and Orangeburg, it hopes to reach an additional 5,600 children by the end of this year’s season.

Our Fifth Annual Distribution Day at YPPC will be Monday, August 6th. On this day, children in K38th grade will receive two sets of school clothes (new and gently used), two pairs of underwear and socks, plus a bag of grade-appropriate school supplies. The goal is to help each child begin the new school year with some of the necessary tools for success.

Please mark your calendars now and plan to volunteer “your hands” for this exciting day in the life of our church. The large number of volunteers each year has made our distribution go very smoothly. (Remember to invite your family, friends and neighbors to also volunteer.)

Collection Season

      We kicked off this year’s Collection Season on May 27 with an Ice Cream Social and the first donations of Socks and Underwear.

      The School Supply Drive will start on June 10. (Our wonderful Scrap-bookers have already donated a table full of supplies to get us started!) Lists of needed supplies are available in the back of the Sanctuary.

      Clothing (new or gently-used) will be collected now through mid-July. Items needed: Pants or jeans; shorts; t-shirts; collared shirts. See list for sizes. (Although not on the official list, we are also collecting children’s jackets and coats.)

            The brightly-colored collection boxes will be in the breezeway each Sunday from now until mid-July. You can also drop off your items in the Fellowship Hall.

**If you would like to help with school supplies but need someone to shop for you, please see Kristi Lynch or Carolyn Lackey. If you would like to help with clothing needs but need someone to shop for you, please see Stephanie Easterling or Sandra Tillman.

LOVE OFFERING - Sunday, June 17, we will hold an offering for Hands of Christ. Thank you for your continuing generosity to this ministry.


CHILDREN’S BOOK DRIVE - We are in need of gently used or new books.  Most urgent need is for the younger children.  If you can donate, please leave in the large Sunday School Room.  If you have questions, please contact Sara.  Last year we served 353 children!  So lots of books are needed.  Your help will be greatly appreciated.­­­­­­­­

 Thank you in advance for your willingness to be a part of this year’s HOC ministry at Yeamans Park.
