Following Christ in Charity and Justice, our ministry strives to meet the needs of the poor and oppressed. There are several subcommittees at our parish but not restricted to: Mac's Kitchen; Pregnancy Support Centers; Kairos [prison ministry].
Mac's Kitchen prepares meals and food boxes to distribute from the church building every third Saturday and lunches every Monday. They also distribute food within the community. For more information, you may call (434) 221-1362 or contact them via Facebook (Mac's Kitchen, Appomattox VA).
Another group works to help the Pregnancy Support Center with their fundraising efforts such as Walk for Life, Baby Bottle Campaign, Diaper Drive, etc. The PSC serves the counties of Amelia, Appomattox, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Lunenburg, Nottoway and Prince Edward. Their main office building is in Farmville, but have satellite offices in Amelia, Appomattox and Buckingham (with one coming soon to Charlotte County). They serve those who have been impacted by pregnancy by offering lab-quality pregnancy testing, limited obstetric ultrasound, options counseling, incentive-based classes in prenatal, infant care, toddler, parenting, fatherhood and co-parenting, and post-abortive support. These services allow their trained staff and volunteers to introduce hope through informed, quality and Christ-centered care. They are a 501c non-profit corporation. Their website is: www.pscsupport.org. Our current project is collecting Christmas gifts for the families currently working with the Appomattox and Buckingham County offices. Last year's project was a huge success, and the families were SO appreciative. The tree is up and the angels are ready to be adopted.
We completed a donation drive for the 2022 Christmas gift ministry for Fluvanna Correctional Center for Women in Troy, Virigina with hygiene items, greeting cards and stationery items. The donations have been delivered to Effort Baptist Church in Palmyra, Virginia for final inspection and destination. THANK YOU to all who have donated!!!
