The various outreach programs we are involved in are as follows:
Top of the Mountain Ecumenical Council (TOMEC), whose vision is to serve the people of three townships in whatever capacity God enables us to serve. Their primary purpose is to meet the needs of those struggling in life, whether it is physical, emotional or spiritual.
Top of the Mountain Food Pantry at Five Loaf House provides food to residents in need in three local townships.
Tobyhanna Elementary School Backpack Program provides two breakfasts, two lunches, two snacks, juice and milk every weekend for those children in need while their parents are at work.
One Great Hour of Sharing, providing aid and support globally. Interfaith dinners enabling us to share our varied beliefs and customs in a communal setting.
Veteran’s Outreach Program – To honor the observance of Veteran’s Day we collect donations and needed clothing items to help fund the operations of a local shelter for the homeless veterans and reentering/rebuilding veterans.
The Giving Tree where members of the congregation purchase items of clothing for children in need for Christmas, who otherwise would have no gifts.
Toys for Children in need – the children of our church go shopping with a few adult church members to purchase toys for Christmas for children in need in the community.
The Memorial Day parade refreshment booth is a way for us to reach out to members of the community.
Election Day dinners, held in our Fellowship Hall, are open to the community. Members of the church enjoy participating in all aspects of this event, and the community members enjoy the fellowship and fine meal.
Through these programs, we have been able to change lives and give hope to those who may not have what they need to thrive in our 21st Century world.
