Every month, Clare Assembly distributes food to over 80 families in the area, feeding up to 300 people. Maureen Wargo is the Director of the Food Pantry and runs a well-oiled machine. Food is purchased through Greater Lansing Food Bank and is properly prepared and distributed.
Every $1 given buys $10 worth of food. If you would like to give to the Food Pantry, please click the giving link at the bottom of the page.
Winters in Michigan are cold. When winter fights, we fight back.
- Coats- Our incredible volunteers collect winter coats to be given in November to those in need. Kim Wilson directs the Warmth Ministry and has a heart for people to have the basic essentials during winter. **We are currently collecting coats, hats, scarves, and gloves/mittens. Please bring your gently used donations to Clare Assembly of God Tuesdays-Fridays 9am-3pm and Sundays 9am - 12pm.**
- Wood- Volunteers chop, collect, organize, and distribute wood for people to heat their homes. The wood is distributed at the Food Pantry during the winter. Tim Anderson leads the Wood Distribution. With his log splitter and plethora of chain saws, he means business.
Building Hope: Single Moms, Widows, and Senior Citizens
During the year, needs arise within the church family. Building Hope seeks to help single moms, widows, and senior citizens meet those needs. Licensed contractors from Clare Assembly volunteer their time and effort to help with heating, plumbing, electrical, painting, yard work, and even building entire interior rooms.
Larry and Deb Farrow are instrumental in Building Hope. The only thing more contagious than their servant hearts is their million dollar smiles.
Tim Anderson, a licensed contractor, also enjoys blessing the Building Hope movement whenever he can.
We desire to connect those who have businesses and/or skills that they can share with others to those who need them. Our goal is to encourage a barter system, especially during these times of economic uncertainty for many. Find our more information and to connect with other at our Facebook group: Clare Assembly Sharing Skills Group.
Annually, Clare Assembly supports 30 missionaries all over the globe. The Assemblies of God is a movement based on the concept that all should know Jesus. We believe it is our duty to aid those who are spreading the gospel into different cultures and regions.
Furthermore, our church goes on short term missions trips. In the past, we've gone from Detroit, MI all the way to the Dominican Republic. If you would like to get involved in the next missions trip, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
