The Loretto church community joins together to meet the needs of those who are truly struggling with food, shelter, utilities, and even addiction. Some churches specialize in one thing or another and all churches help on other things. The local food pantry is housed at Faith Baptist Church, but is one of those ministries that depends on the support of every church. Loretto UMC designates the 1st Sunday of the month as Food Pantry Sunday. We ask members of the congregation to bring food or give a financial donation that will be passed along to this ministry. Jesus looked with compassion on those who were hungry and fed them. In fact, Jesus wants us to feed the hungry as a natural way of living. God's people are doing God's work when we provide food for the hungry!
Mountain Top @ Home
Every 3rd Saturday (and sometimes in between), we meet at 7:30 am for breakfast and then go out in the community for a work project. We're usually finished by noon. We build wheelchair ramps, clean up brush, remove fallen trees, and other odd jobs when someone has a need. Mountain Top @ Home has been around for more than 20 years and built over 300 wheelchair ramps. Our voluneers are great servants who desire to bring hope to a hurting world.
