Outreach & Ministries
SUPPORT INTERFAITH WORKS of CNY
This winter, we gathered new and like-new coats and blankets for the refugee ministry of InterFaith Works; we also collected 2 Welcome Kits for kitchens.
JAMESVILLE FOOD PANTRY
Many local families depend on the Food Pantry for needs, especially as many are furloughed right now. We support several food pantries with food and financial donations. A July 4th Ice Cream Social fundraiser will benefit our Jamesville Food Pantry.
We have an annual "Mitten Tree" during Advent and Christmas to collect mittens, scarves and hats that are distributed through the Jamesville Food Pantry. Donations may be dropped off at the church building.
GIFT CARDS for our JAMESVILLE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
We collected 30 gift cards to help our local school fill Christmas baskets for needy families in their population.
We also collected many generous donations to create the #1 selling a "Taste of Jamesville" Bursting Basket. Gift cards were purchased at local restaurants to doubly support our community! This annual JES fundraiser supports the school's programs.

Blessing of the Animals
A new event for us, we offer a service and personal blessing for pets of any type (as long as they are under the owner's control)! Water and extra waste bags are provided.
Trunk or Treat
Also a new addition during the pandemic, we reached out to area children and parents who couldn't go trick or treating. Members and friends came with decorated car trunks and lots of treats, individually packaged, to hand out to young folks who came in costume for us. This was a lot of fun!
Teacher Recognition and Encouragement
Reaching out to our local elementary school, both students and teachers, is important during this Covid time. We reached out last year on Teacher Appreciation Day and sent cupcakes on Valentine's Day.
We offer use of our facilities to Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, AA and a local Flute Choir.
Teacher Appreciation Day recognized local teachers for their Commit-Mint, Invest-Mint, Involve-Mint and Encourage-Mint!
