Worthington Presbyterian Church
An open house event was held at Hoge in 2009 where all Worthington PC’s members were invited to tour our church and listen to a discussion of all the ministries available for them to volunteer at. Of the 90 members who came to the open house, more than half showed interest and signed up to help in one or more areas.
The Worthington PC Junior and Senior High youth groups agreed to start coming to Hoge on opposite months to fill food boxes for Hoge’s Food Pantry. With changes to the youth group on the horizon we hope to renew the youth’s interest in this ministry.
Rev. Julia Piermont expressed an interest in our HM3 ministry. Tom Piecenski, not only helps with the food pantry,but also helps with HM3. In 2013 his scheduling was greatly simplified by the addition of two teams of families being formed. These new teams provide one meal every other month. With the upcoming 2015 HM3 Calendar in the works, Team Piecenski has shifted to every other month. Teams Elliot and Milroy will continue to be scheduled on opposite months.
Over the past few years Worthington has also provided candy and manpower to help with Hoge’s Easter Egg Hunt.
Members of Worthington supported the first Birthday Party for Jesus. It was an evening of games, crafts, and food, and a children’s storybook time.
