Churches give back


To the Editor:

In challenging economic times, it is comforting to know that there are people within our own community that care.

One local group is out sharing the holiday spirit while celebrating their community. Over the past year, the Capac Ministerial Association (comprised of the clergy from Capac area churches) has worked to create a collaborative group, or partnership to provide services and support within the community. Clergy members and congregational representatives make up the newly formed Capac Area Community Action Committee (CACAC), which collaborates to provide services in the area. Supporting each other in the soup kitchen, food pantries/food drives, collections, and projects help to streamline congregational efforts within the community. Goals include better communication, greater outreach, and collaboration between congregations.

One of its first projects involved food baskets as a helping hand to community members. Over the past week, almost 30 members got together at the St. John's Lutheran Church Parish Hall to put together over 80 food baskets for the unemployed or needy during the holidays. Coordinators Dena Long (Capac Community Church), Connie Tosch (Capac Zion Methodist Church), Chris Donellon (Capac St. Nicholas Catholic Church) and Jennifer Parker-Moore (Capac St. John's Lutheran Church) plan to make this an annual event. Plans are already underway for the next project - spring baskets. Thanks to everyone who helped!
