Our church exists to encourage, comfort, teach and help people through all walks of life and into eternity. To that end, through the year our members support charitable causes that provide physical assistance to various groups.
Purses for Laura’s House
Laura’s House is a battered women’s shelter in Cleveland. Many abused and displace women go there often with children to escape dangerous physical situations. Once a year our members collect used purses and then fill them with toiletries, snacks and tools for carrying on after a life shattering experience. The purses not only provide stuff, but a possession that the women own helps them feel fresh encourages women to carry on even if they have to start over.
The Parma church houses a food bank to share some of life’s blessings with who need that assistance affording or getting “their daily bread.” The shelves are open during regular event times for those in need.
Coats for Men's Shelter
Winter in Cleveland can be brutal especially when you are homeless or under housed. Our members collect coats and new socks for the “ 2100 Lakeside“ men’s shelter in downtown Cleveland. In addition to praying and preaching we try to physically warm the souls of these men.
Serving Food for the Homeless
A group of volunteers wen to the men's shelter at 2100 Lakeside avenue to serve lunch Saturday February 29th.
The program was very well organized, courteous and efficient.
