In the greater Grand Ledge area, we partner with many local organizations.
Grand Ledge Food Bank - Monthly, we have a food collection for the food bank as part of our Communion Sunday worship,
and we publish a list of updated needs in our newsletter. We have several individuals who regularly volunteer to work at the food bank.
Grand Ledge Emergency Assistance Program (GLEAP) - we collect a special offering to support GLEAP during the course of the year.
Blessings in a Backpack - we collect food and supplies to help support students when they will not have access to regular meals at school.
We partner with other local churchs in the Grand Ledge community for shared worship on Thanksgiving and Good Friday,
as well as working on community concerns.
Little Free Library - In our continuing effort to fight illiteracy First Congregational UCC has a Little Free Library.
It is located in the front of the church near our road sign.
Little Free Library is a national program where interested individuals or groups register their libraries and then place them on their property and make books available to all ages in their neighborhood. It works just like a regular Library; you can borrow a book and return it.
You can donate a book. You can take a book and return it to another LFL.
We also share our building space with a variety of community groups, including Alcoholic Anonymous, Al-Anon, and practice space for Mudge's Follies.
If you know of a group in need of a space to meet, please let us know!
