We work with GOoDWorks. GOoDWorks was organized by a member of our church, but it is for all the churches in the Chapin area. GOoDWorks helps those in need in our community with housing, utility bills, counseling and in many other ways. Each year our church has a GOoDWorks Blitz in which we repair, rennovate, build handicap ramps, and encourage. .. GOoDWorks has won two awards by the state of SC for the highest percentage of its gifts going into ministry.
WE CARE-is our local food pantry that LMPC supports by bringing food and giving financially. The local churches started We Care which is open Monday and Wednesday 9:00- 12:00. Our goal is to give 7,000 pouds in 2012.
CHRISTGATE is a local women’s shelter. We are the major supporter for Christgate, paying their mortgage each month and then some. This is a small shelter that currently holds four women and five children.
THE HUB- We help with tutoring at the HUB. The HUB is an old bar where there was problems with drugs and murders. The churches bought the HUB and turned it into a community center where tutoring takes place as well as scouts and special events. Melinda Rogers has also helped run a summer program on Wednesdays in which we feed the children and do Bible School activities.
