Volunteer Spotlight

Summer Meal Program

Summer is the hungriest time of the year. Many children who rely on school meals struggle to get enough to eat during the summer months. Our Summer Meal Programs was a success because of faithful volunteers:

Browncroft Community Church


Whitney Baniewicz's daughters' Aubrey (7) and Brooke (5) 

Children serving other children, how awesome! 

It is important that parents instill into their children to give of the time and resources. They are never to young to learn how to serve others and to sow into the work of the Lord, at church and in ministry programs. Children as well as adults learn very quickly, that when they volunteer to bless others, in return they are blessed. 

Thanks Girls,

Keep showing the love of Christ to those who need it the most! 

Browncroft Community Church


Diane Costenoble

Diane volunteered in our Summer Meals Program, before going work this summer. What a blessing! 

She is currently volunteering as our bookkeeper. Who knew, but God 

that this relationship would go 

beyond the summer! 

Special Thanks

To Pastor Rob and staff for instilling in your members the importance of serving. Putting their faith into action!

To Jack, who is faithful at his job, connecting the church with 

inner-city ministries. 

Orchard Community Church


Gretel Zuch, Claudia Zuch (Mom)

Barb Tycha and Harry Zuch (Dad)

Stopped by the mission and you should have seen the faces of the children when they saw them come in. Most of the children had not seen them since the tutoring program 

last year. Their faces were full of joy and the hugs followed. They were happy to receive the "healthy" 

home cooked meal. They very 

much enjoy the food. I surprised 

them and it was worth it.

Amari Washington

Many of you may know Amari, Pastor Barbara's eldest granddaughter. She is a high school senior. Hard to believe she will be graduating May 2020. Amari has always made time to give back to her community. She has served at the mission since she was a child. The Scripture says, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he/she is old he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6, NKJV). 

Over the years Amari has served at the mission; putting away food, cleaning, wrapping Christmas gifts for children, working in the office (typing, filing and answering the phone) and in the summer camp program. 

Thanks, Amari

that you do for those in need.
