Other On-Going Community Outreach
Every Thanksgivng on the Tuesday before, we serve a meal at 5 different locations. The 5 sites include:
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Windber; Moxham Luthern Church in Moxham; First Lutheran Church in downtown Johnstown; Morrellville Church of the Brethern in the West End and at our Johnstown New Day office in Kernville.
We have consistently served around 600 meals on this evening, with more than 120 people helping to prepare food, transport food to the various locations, set up and tear down, greet and seat people, wait on tables and help clean up! Not to mention, share the Love of Jesus on a great night of serving together in the Kingdom of God!

Twice a month she also holds a Bible Study at Twin Lakes for any who want to participate.
