We partner with TWIGS, a non-profit mission based in Granite City, to offer free lunches to any children in Columbia during the summer. 2018 is our fifth year! Lunches are distributed at Metter Park.
Each semester at the Columbia Middle School we offer an after school program for five weeks. Students in 5th through 8th grade are welcome. We provide a Bible lesson, small group discussion, crafts, snacks and games. We have an average of 30 students each semester.
This ministry is a pregnancy resource center committed to providing free and confidential, non-judgmental help to men and women. We support them by participating in their baby bottle campaign (filling baby bottles with change, cash or checks). We also sponsor several tables at the annual fund raising banquet.
