Family Promise of Ontario County

As the Outreach team, we are always looking for ways to help our neighbors, near and far. We were so thankful with your generosity to help with our UMCOR campaign in the fall. Last year around this time, we asked everyone to participate in a Lenten challenge for the VF Food Cupboard. This year we are doing something a little different.

Our church has been actively involved over the past few years with Family Promise. Everyone has been wonderful with their donations of time and items when we host our families.. even virtually. In addition to the items Family Promise needs for our turn to host, they also need items just to continue the daily running of this program.

We would like to start a Valentine’s Love Mission to help Family Promise with some of their daily needs. Talking with Lauren Lamb this week, she updated me on some items that they could use. I think, with your generosity, we can help them. For the next month, we will be collecting items. You can drop them off at church in the bin labeled in the lounge or put them on Lisa’s front porch in the bin. (6768 Aldridge Rd, Victor). We appreciate all you do to help our church family as well as our community. If you have any questions you can contact Nancy Kidd or Lisa Brotsch.


So here is their wish list. The top items are things they could desperately use. I’ve added a few other items from their website as well.

Large size children's or toddler's diapers - look for coupons in the newspaper and on line

Toddler Pull ups- all sizes.  They will take open packages as well

Postage stamps

Gift cards-  small denominations- $5 $10 $15. For Tops,  Aldi’s , Walmart, Wegmans - these can be left with Wendy if you do not want to leave in tub- be sure to label Valentine’s Love Mission- we will check the tub daily!

Money offerings


From their website: printer paper; laundry detergent; baby wipes; Bath towels and wash cloths;


Again thank you for your generosity!

Online Worship amidst COVID-19

During this time of COVID-19, we have the priviledge of having several videos a week uploaded to the church's YouTube page.

On Tuesdays there is a quick update/thought provoking video usually no longer than 10 minutes.

On Wednesdays there is a bible study video in which Pastor Ben goes over the week's lectionary texts with colleagues.

And on Sunday mornings we have our Online Worship video that includes: music, a children's message, scripture reading, prayer, and Pastor Ben's message.

We pray all these resources help you in your walk with God during these times. The link to our YouTube can be found at the top of the Welcome page or just click here!
