Whitehall

Details: Our church continues to be involved with Ripple's outreach in the city--we give financially, we have members of our church that our involved in helping with services, and we have joint services with them--in which both of us have prepared meals and served the other. We partner with another congregation to offer VBS program (Egypt Community Church).  We offered the use of our building free of charge to our neighbors-- canvassed the surrounding households to let folks know. Our space is used for a local NA group on Monday nights. Our children generally have at least 2 local missions projects each year--in the past, we worked with Allentown Rescue Mission and Lehigh County Conference of Churches--specifically with local family in need.
