Grocery Fellowship For Your Church!

If you would like to know more about Grocery Fellowship please contact us!

This is something a little different than most pages of this website, but I felt it had a need to be included in. I have been mulling over this idea for a while now and I think it is a very good idea. This idea will help a number of people in your church or organization. The idea is to connect 2 people together, (either focusing on one helping the other person ie. elderly, disabled, or mutual helping one another).
 
It is real simple, yet at the same time, it can be very helpful to everyone involved. I personally have been doing this volunteer grocery fellowship with an elderly blind lady by the name of Carol, for almost 2 years and I believe the idea can be copied and shared in your church or organization. She benefits from my help and I benefit from helping her.
 
The plan is to connect two people with the intention and hope to mutually give support and encouragement to one another. I have a lot of faith and confidence in this idea, not that it will change the world, but it would influence relationships between the members of your church or organization. Namely the elderly, disabled, and any and all people who shop for groceries which is all of us. ~ Bill Greguska
 

Grocery Fellowship Can Help Make A Difference!

I enjoy volunteering because it makes me feel like I am doing something worthwhile and that someone benefits from my efforts. ~ Bill Greguska

John 13:34-35  “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.”

 

List Of Potential Benefits Of The Grocery Fellowship:

I have been helping Carol shop for her groceries for almost 2 years now. We sometimes stop at Mc Donalds for a hamburger after we finish the grocery shopping. My friend Carol is blind and is 75 years old. This helps both her and her husband Russ who is over 80 years old himself.

Find out if this grocery fellowship could be started at your church? It would not be hard to start or maintain and would be a possible benefit to a number of people. Even helping a few would be worth it.
