The Church in Society Team leads a variety of initiatives throughout the year to address areas of important social concern.
Spring Plant Sale
Beautiful flowering plants and herbs are available for purchase each spring, with proceeds benefitting the Rise Against Hunger Meal packing project.
Fall Bulb Sale
The Church in Society team sponsors a fall bulb sale to raise money for Rise Against Hunger. 50% of sales go toward funds needed for the Rise Against Hunger meal packing project, in which we pack more than 35,000 meals to send to people in need.
Helping to Feed the Hungry in our Community
During the Lenten season, the Church in Society Team supported the Chester County Food Bank’s Backpack Program by collecting canned fruit to be distributed with other items to families in need. The Backpack Program provides food to families of school-age children who receive free or reduced-fee lunches.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
For the last five years we have participated in this West Chester Inter Faith Event. In 2011 we lent our kitchen to a casserole making for the West Chester Food Cupboard.
World Communion Sunday
On World Communion Sunday we celebrate communion with Christians around the world. For more information, visit the General Board of Church and Society of the United Methodist Church.
