Grace Main

Our local missions outreach is Grace Cares.  The center for this outreach to the Cortland community is “Grace Main” located at 18 Main St. in downtown Cortland.  Adult groups meet for prayer and support at various times throughout the week, including our Time 2 Pray prayer group.  The ongoing support for the physical needs of our community is our Food Pantry.

 

Food Pantry at Grace Main

Located at 18 Main Street in downtown Cortland, our Food Pantry is part of our local missions outreach, Grace Cares.  The Food Pantry’s mission is to feed the hungry in our community.  We feed the heart and soul, as well as the stomach, with the love of Jesus.
Our Food Pantry is open the second and fourth Fridays of the month from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.
Volunteers receive, prepare and distribute food items based on family size with several menu options.  In addition, we spend time with each visitor, listening to and praying with them.
 
Volunteers are needed to help set up as well as serve in the pantry.  Please email kmelford@juno.com if you can help.  Donations of non-perishable items are appreciated and may be left in the drop box in the Grace Cafe on Sundays at Grace Christian Fellowship, 1250 Fisher Ave. between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
