In addition to our food pantry and recovery groups, there are a number of other ways you can find and give support.
Homework & Reading Help
This program offers after-school assistance to elementary and kindergarten children. It also serves pre-kindergarten kids who are enrolled in a formal program. Volunteers from the church and the community help students with their homework; provide the opportunity to strengthen their reading, writing, comprehension, math and analytical skills (more than 400 books have been donated for this purpose); and engage in other educational activities such as a board game, a puzzle, or drawings. Participants meet twice a week: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 5 p.m. at the church, 926 Bay Ridge Avenue in Annapolis. Volunteers are not expected to attend all sessions. They can come as often as their schedules allow. No special training or credentials are needed.
We are called to simultaneously gather around the table for worship and ensure that other children of God have enough food on their own table. On the third Wednesday of each month we host a food pantry for all who are in need. This is a tremendous opportunity to connect and make friends. There are plenty of longstanding relationships developed here and we love to see families and friends grow because of it.
