Food Pantry Collection
On the second Sunday of each month, we collect food items requested by A Servant's Heart Food Pantry on Franklin Street in Melrose. Founded in 1996, A Servant's Heart regularly supplies much-needed food to 150 families.
We ask that contributions be brought on the second Sunday of the month and left at the back of the sanctuary. Contributions brought earlier should be left in the collection bin in the lower entryway near the church office. And please check the items you're giving to ensure their expiration dates haven't passed.
Something to think about as you shop:

Feeding Ministry -- Bread of Life dinners
Big changes afoot for Bread of Life (BOL)! The BOL Feeding Ministry in Malden will soon be moving to the American Legion building at 368 Pleasant St. In Malden, for all the Tuesday and Wednesday meals. As a result of this move, our dates to serve have changed. The Highlands church will now be serving the meal on the third Wednesday of the even months.
Habitat for Humanity Work Day
We volunteered with the Merrimack Valley Habitat for Humanity. We spent the day lending a hand as MVHH renovated the former St. Patrick’s Convent at 100 Parker Street in Lawrence into 10 safe, affordable condominium-style homes.
