Outreach Ministries

 

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” — Matt. 25:35-36 (NIV)

Our Mission

On Sundays, we worship God. We lift our prayers and concerns up to God. And the rest of the week we are called to be Christ to our neighbors, to strangers and loved ones alike. Through our outreach ministries, we provide food, clothing, and shelter to those in need. 

Our outreach extends to fellowship activities. Even in ordinary community activities such as bicycle or golf outings, we are gathering to be a community that shares our love of Christ with one another — with our friends, with our loved ones, and with strangers we encounter. No matter how we serve, in ways big and small, we are knit together as one, with the love of Christ.

Mondays & Wednesdays from 9 – 10:45 am

Founded 30 years ago, in August of 1989, the Ecumenical Food Pantry is a joint effort between First Presbyterian Church of Saginaw, The Roman Catholic Diocese of Saginaw, and several other partner churches.

Knitting ministry

Each week, knitters and crocheters of all levels gather to hand-craft beautiful, prayer-filled shawls, caps, gloves, scarves, and more. These gifts go to infants, cancer victims, veterans, homeless, and other people in need.
