Social Action

Circle of Hope is the umbrella for our community outreach programs to support those in need.  We support the Circle of Hope through the generous donations of our members and occasional fund raisers. We are a small congregation and our focus is primarily toward local issues where our support can be most effective.

 

  Sharing Table

  Harford County Food Pantry

  Harford Family House

The Sharing Table is a coalition of churches, dedicated to reaching out to citizens in need. Our church, along with other local churches, work together to serve a free meal, most Saturdays, to anyone in need. We typically host the Sharing Table at the Prince of Peace Church in Edgewood three times a year, providing lunch to approximately 100 people each time.

The congregation supports the Harford County Food Pantry with regular donations.

 

 The Food Pantry gets peanut butter through federal and state food distributions and bread donation from local grocers, but are frequently short of grape jelly that is a favorite of needy children for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

 

They call us the Grape Jelly Church because we concentrate our donations on supplying grape jelly.

Harford Family House is the largest provider of transitional housing for homeless families with children in Harford County. We are currently involved with Harford Family House by adopting a family to assist in their path to independence.  We are exploring other ways we might support their mission.

 

We usually adopt a family for the Christmas Holidays donating gifts for the children and food for a Christmas dinner. We also collect mittens and scarfs on our Mitten Tree and  school supplies under the tree for school children in need.

 

We will emphasis the needs of families at Harford Family house for our Christmas donations.
