Board of Deacons
God gave us two hands; one to help yourself and one to help others.
As Deacons, we will serve those in need in our congregation, our community and God’s kingdom with love and compassion. This is our witness to God’s love, mercy, and grace.
Food Pantry - This is an on-going ministry of the Deacons. Our community generously donates canned goods and non-perishable food which is given to the Garden City Food Pantry housed at the First Methodist Church on Merriman Rd. in Garden City.
Emergency Food Bags – for those who need immediate food support, food bags are given by appointment only, on Tuesday and Friday. Bags include canned and non-perishable food.
Holiday Food – Each year at Thanksgiving, the Deacons prepare boxes of food for families designed in need by our local school district. These boxes are delivered in time for their Thanksgiving dinner.
Christmas Wish Tree – The families receiving Thanksgiving food are asked to provide Christmas wishes for the children in the family. Our Wish Tree contains tags for our community to purchase these gifts and the gifts are delivered in time for a joyous Christmas morning.
Veteran Remembrance – Throughout the year, we continue to remember our veterans at the VA Hospital. We take many items of personal hygiene care and activities for them.
