As part of their outreach ministry, the Edon Area Ministerial Association once again assisted families in the Edon Northwest Local School District with food baskets, clothing and children’s toys during this Christmas Season.
Over the past few weeks, Edon, Blakeslee and Cooney pastors and their congregations have donated sweatshirts, school supplies, mittens, board games, teddy bears, money for food, gift cards, etc. needed to help brighten the holidays of nearly twenty-five area families. The local community also supported EAMA through The Angel Tree Project, Edon High School’s Student Council Mitten Tree, Edon Public Library’s “Food for Fines” Drive with additional assistance received from Mix 98.1~ “Christmas For Kids” and “Neighbors in Need” programs as well.
The Edon Area Ministerial Association, as the hands and feet of Jesus, reaches out to the surrounding community through a variety of ministries, including a food pantry, on-call pastoral care through the Edon Police Department and financial assistance (utilities, auto repairs, fuel, temporary housing and prescription drugs.) They also host community worship services throughout the year ~ Prayer for Christian Unity, Spring Worship, National Day of Prayer, Thanksgiving, Edon Days ~ along with a weekly Bible Study at the Edon Senior Center.
If you are interested in helping with any of their ministries or are in need of assistance, feel free to contact one of the following EAMA congregations: Columbia Church of Christ, Edon Church of Christ, Edon United Methodist Church, Mount Union Christian Union Church, Nettle Lake United Brethren in Christ Church, St. Joseph Catholic Church and St. Peter Lutheran Church.
