Community Outreach

“What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”          James 2:14-17

“For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I (Jesus) am among you as one who serves.” (Luke 22:27)  Jesus set an example for Christians that we are to serve as Jesus served.  At DuBois Alliance we believe so strongly in this that we are even teaching our children to serve those around them.  There are opportunities for everyone in the church to participate in a service opportunity and reach out to the community.
What are some of the outreaches DuBois Alliance has done?
  • Monthly Mobile Food Pantry– The first Friday of every month over 200 families receive free food to feed their families.
  • Clothing Drive– Throughout the year people throughout the community donate gentle used clothing, which is given away twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall to anyone in the community.
  • Christmas Gift Wrapping– At Christmas time volunteers wrap gifts at the DuBois Mall, free of charge.
  • Community Days– During community days volunteers work at two booths during Community Days to provide free games for children and teens to enjoy.
  • Free Lemonade Stand- This past summer the children learned how to serve others, and they served free lemonade at City Park.  Providing a cold glass of lemonade on a hot day.
  • Nursing Home Visit-The children planted flowers for nursing home residents and visited with them.
  • Free Car Wash-The children washed cars for anyone that wanted their car washed for free.
This is a list of some of the outreaches the people of DuBois Alliance Church are helping with.  The volunteers come away from each service opportunity blessed and excited to serve the Lord.  If you have any desire to participate in an outreach or you have suggestions for any outreaches, please contact Pastor Jon.
