Having Enough Loving People Serving
The purpose of H.E.L.P.S. Ministry is to extend the love of Christ beyond our walls to help serve the practical needs of our community.
The Furniture Bank gives donated furniture to those in need. The special thing about the furniture bank is the cooperation between businesses, the Contact Center, other churches and agencies. The furniture bank operates by referral only. Those requesting furniture obtain a referral request from a Yankton agency. The furniture bank is open on Wednesdays at 4:00 and other times by setting up an appointment. Call (605) 660-2172 for questions.
Food Distribution (Feed America and Wal-Mart)
First Assembly is a distribution center for Wal-Mart’s “Feeding America” initiative that was started in 2010. According to the USDA, at some point during 2012, one in six Americans didn’t know where their next meal was coming from. By collaborating with others, Wal-Mart is uniquely positioned to help us make an impact on this issue in our community. A variety of food items is distributed here on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 8:30 am.
