Our Jerusalem - Johnstown PA
JONAH BAGS FOR THOSE IN NEED
The Jonah Bag Project is a ministry in which our congregation goes out and fills a guest bag up with enough non-perishable food for 3 days. The Pastor and staff have the privilage of passing these special bags of food blessings to families in our community who are in need. Each bag is as different and unique as the families who assembled the contents. In order to receive a Jonah Bag, someone in the family will need to call or stop by during regular hours and fill out an application or you may go to the contact tab and submit your request today.
The Martha & Mary Homeless House - Westmont Baptist Church has partnered with the Martha & Mary Homeless House in Dale which will be calling and utilizing our Jonah Bag Ministry as new families arrive at the house on an as needs basis. Again, WBC simply trying to Connect our neighbors here in Johnstown to God, Community, and Service!
Because the Wards and Burroughs of Johnstown are our Home, we also give and support several local ministries in our area. We invite you and your family to come and get connected to God, Community, and Service. Please, come and be our guest this coming Sunday.
Snack Basket Ministry
Snack Baskets for our Police & Firefighters
We have the privilege of having a wonderful group of police officers and firefighters who serve whenever the call comes; night or day - rain or sunshine or snow! They respond and protect our families, homes, streets, and communities daily from various dangers that come our way. More than we know, these men and women put their lives in danger to protect the communities in which we live.
This is a simple ministry, in which we take a "Thank-You Basket" filled with various snacks for those men and women who respond when we call. This ministry takes place on a quarterly basis.
During the month of October, our church strives to collect 500 plus cans of non-perishable food to donate to local food banks in the area to help alleviate families who are famished in our area for whatever reason. In this wealthy country, no one should be without food, especially the children in our area. During this month, we also collect donations for the "World Hunger Fund" which in return is used to help alleviate hunger around the world.
