Through our partnership with One Community Now Pack-A-Sack Food 4 Kids , which is a kid-friendly school-based program designed to help address the problem of chronic hunger among school age children in Pasco County we have adopted Richey Elementary School. We provide food for teacher-identified chronically hungry children over the weekend and extended breaks. This year we will be feeding 70 students on a weekly basis. Volunteers to help with this amazing ministry can call thje church office.
Our Church Outreach includes this agency which helps expectant mothers and their families. They provide diapers, baby food, clothing and car seats. They refer the mothers for food, help with rent and utilities and other everyday . needs. Our church community makes donations of needed items. Donations of Community Outreach in New Port Richey baby items are always welcome
On the first Sunday of every month members of our church bring in donations for our local food pantry. These non-perishable food items are donated to the United Methodist Church and helps feed families and individuals in need in New Port Richey.

Church members knit and crochet prayer shawls to give to those who are ill, healing, grieving, or in need of a shawl to brighten their day. The shawls are blessed during a worship service and then given to those who need them.
SUPPORTING MILITARY AND FIRST RESPONDERS
Collecting socks, hand warmers, individual hand - sanitizers and other items for those who are serving in our military and for those who are first to respond to emergencies is an important outreach for our church. The Outreach Committee is proud of the many ways this church shares God's love throughout the world.
