 FOR NEIGHBORS IN NEED:
        Food Pantry: For over twenty years we have provided a place where those         in need of a few days' food could get it.  Today, the pantry is part of a                 county-wide system (run by the Broome County Council of                                 Churches).  You must be referred, call 2-1-1 or 1-800-901-2180.

 WE WELCOME EVERYONE:

 OUTREACH BEYOND MAINE: 
                 Jesus taught us that our "neighbor" is whoever we know who needs help, whether they live next door or on the other side of the world.  Here are a few ways we help:

     Special Donations:  Through gifts of almost $12,000 each year to the United     Methodist Church's and United Church of Christ's state, national, and                 international ministries we bring the good news of God's love.  We are             proud supporters of Broome & Tioga County's Habitat for Humanity,  New         Hope Orphanage in Kenya, and Haiti Disaster Relief.  We also support the         Family Counseling Ministry of the Susquehanna Association (United Church     of Christ) and the Broome County Council of Churches.
