Community Outreach

Ways to Serve

Please consider joining other BRIDGE BUILDERS in our congregation, who are working to establish a strong link between our church home and the shut-in members still wanting a connection to their church family. The qualifications are simple…a caring heart and a few minutes in your schedule to make a visit or a call to someone in need of a “special friend.” Each BRIDGE BUILDER will be assigned to one “special friend” and the connection between you is of your own design. If you want to be a part of this very special mission within our own congregation, please email our church office at therese@firstpresmanhattan.com or call the office at 785-537-0518.

Community Meals NEEDS your help! Community Meals currently serves to-go meals on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. which includes a to-go breakfast as well. We are in need of volunteers who are willing to help with bringing food and/or serving the food. For more information, please contact Claudia Voos at cvoos@burnettauto.com or Missy Cox at mjc_2188@hotmail.com

Blessing Box…Did you know that some members of our congregation join with the members of First Congregational Church to place short-term-need items in the BLESSING BOX at Poyntz Avenue and Juliette Street! Non-perishable food items such as pop-top cans of soup, chili, stew, tuna, fruit and jars of peanut butter, protein bars, breakfast bars. Hygiene items such as bars of soap, small bottles of shampoo, hand sanitizer, toothbrushes and toothpaste. All are welcomed by members of our community family whose lack of resources keep them from purchasing these necessities for themselves. This is a 24/7/365 days a year project. Contributions now and throughout the year can be designated for THE BLESSING BOX and dropped off at the church office. We have a BLESSING CUPBOARD where items are stored until placed in THE BLESSING BOX as they are needed. Please share your extra blessings with those who are struggling. Your generosity is always appreciated.
