Social Concerns Committee

New to the community? This is a great  way to get to find your place in our community and make a difference in our wider community.

The Social Concerns Committee seeks to involve members of the congregation in the needs of the local community. Areas of interest include issues of safe and adequate housing, hunger alleviation, abuse prevention and shelters, as well as other local issues. We have worked on projects at the Ronald McDonald House, the Regional Engagement Center of Snyder County, Susquehanna Valley CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), Janet Weis Children’s Hospital, the Lewisburg Prison Project and the East Snyder Community Garden. We’ve cooked casseroles for families with sick kids, dug and planted gardens, written holiday greetings to inmates with no families, walked dogs and cleaned kennels, raised funds to support a local food bank and set a goal to solicit more churches and groups to help us.

We collected funds from our wider community to help our neighbors in Staten Island who were affected by Superstorm Sandy. We are a community who sadly knows what it means to be affected by floods.

Our program continues to grow. More and more folks are getting involved. We’re claiming our place in this valley and making a difference.

The world is waiting for your helping, healing touch. We’d love you to join us!
