The SPARK Mission Team at Greensburg First United Methodist Church is very pleased to announce that we recently received a grant of $1,000.00  from Walmart Corporation. With this financial support, we will be able to restock our donation room with household items that are essential when individuals or families move out of the homeless shelter and into new housing. So many people are starting over with nothing; and with the wide variety of household items available at Walmart, we can provide some of their most basic needs. We are very appreciative of this grant that helps us fulfill our mission of taking the love of Christ outside the four walls of our church and that demonstrates Walmart’s commitment to involvement in the communities they serve.

Serving the Community

We are blessed with the opportunity to serve the needy of our community. Each fall, we distribute nearly 150 backpacks loaded with school supplies  to children of families in need. Many of those families are supported at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our food bank feeds nearly 100 families every month. A discretionary fund provides emergency support. Our church is deeply involved serving our community, and we thank God for the opportunity.
