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.
- 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.
Clare FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes)
The Clare FCA Huddle is the longest, continuous huddle in the state, running for 50 years. Pastor Jonathan and Addy humbly accepted title of "Huddle Leader" from Bonnie Rae Walter, who had lead for 30 years herself. Not too shabby, Bonnie Rae. Jonathan and Addy lead it weekly, meeting in the Clare High School Library every Wednesday morning from 7:45-8 AM. Huddles consist of a biblical message provided by a different speaker and leader in the Clare community each week, as well as snacks. God is doing good things in the Clare Public Schools. The Bible is being shared, students are learning about Jesus, prayers are being lifted up, all in the epicenter of small-town America: the public schools.
If you would like to speak at FCA, please reach out to Jonathan Harper on Facebook or at church sometime. To come along for the journey, follow @clare.fca on Instagram.
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.
