Peace In Christ strives to be the hands of Christ reaching out and the feet of Christ walking into our local communities to love and serve. We are proud to serve Hermantown, Proctor, and other local communities in a variety of ways.
Four or five times a year, we use our education hour on Sunday to serve the community around us. We have done lots of different projects like:
Meals & Sandwiches
Off Campus Projects like painting, landscaping, cleaning, etc.
Union Gospel Christmas Mailing
School Supply - Every fall our members donate backpacks and school supplies. The backpacks are filled with the school supplies and delivered to kids from local community schools who are in need.
Thanksgiving Baskets - Every Thanksgiving, our Compassion Care Committee fills laundry baskets with frozen turkeys, sweet potatoes, potatoes, beans, cranberries, stuffing, rolls, pies, and whipped cream. These baskets are then delivered to families in need from both the congregation and local communities.
Giving Tree - Each Christmas, our Commpassion Care Committee receives a list of families in need and their wishes for Christmas gifts and household needs. These gift wishes are placed on ornaments and hung on the Giving Tree in the church entrance. Our members graciously and excitedly go shopping for the items on the ornaments, wrap them up, and bring them back to church. Our members then deliver the gifts to these families in need to help make their Christmas a little brighter.
Dresser Ministry - When we receive notice of an expecting mother in need, our members not only buy a dresser, but they fill all the drawers with all kinds of baby supplies. These supplies include diapers, clothes, bottles, lotion, baby shampoo, toys, blankets and other items. Then the full dresser is delivered to the new mother.
Furniture and Housing Provisions - Our Compassion Care Committee collects furniture, dishware, small appliances, and other household items. These items are donated to families in transitional housing who most often move into their new home with very little.
