• KIDS FOOD BASKET

    1.3 million healthy meals were distributed to children and families thru the “Sack Supper” program in 2021.

    Every September, Kid’s Food Basket kicks off the school year with a Brown Bag Decoration focus.  The goal this year is to get 200,000 lunch bags decorated.  Bags are available in the Carlson Family Center to decorate here or to take home and decorate.  Please return bags to church by 9/25.

  • North Kent Connect

    North Kent Connect (formerly North Kent Community Services) connects people to the resources they need–anything from food to job training to fellowship–to help residents in northern Kent County meet basic needs and work towards economic independence. In order to help even more people in the community, it opened North Kent Connect Store where anyone can shop there for high-quality, gently-used clothing and household goods at affordable prices. Every purchase will help local families better their lives through North Kent’s empowerment programs.

    • Donations are needed! North Kent Connect is looking for donations of clothing, household items, furniture, and sporting goods. Donations are accepted Monday-Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. For more information visit nkconnect.org.
