Ministries - Benevolence/Helping Hands

In these tough economic times, many are finding themselves in a position of need. In order to help meet those needs, Forest Heights routinely takes up a collection of food and other necessities. Scripture commands that we, out of love for the brethren and in obedience to the Lord, make these provisions available (John 13:35; 1 Tim 5:8; 1 John 3:17).  As such, it is an honor and privilege to provide this service. If you find yourself in need or would like to make contributions, we want to encourage you to call the church office.

Below you will find a list of grocery and personal hygiene items the Senior Adult Helping Hands Ministry is collecting in an effort to provide a bag of each to the needy families and elderly in our community.  If you can provide an entire bag, that would be wonderful, but if you can only provide certain items it would be greatly appreciated as well.  Please see Leon Nicolosi for additional information.
