Reaching out in Christ's Name
Alleluia is committed to reaching out to our community and to the world through ongoing mission and service. Throughout the year, there are a variety of opportunities to serve either as an individual or as a family. Service opportunities include:
Feed the Hungry
The first Sunday of the month is always “Food Shelf” Sunday and worshipers can bring food that will be delivered to the Hanover Food Shelf. Teams of adults and youth also volunteer at both the Hanover and Buffalo Food shelves throughout the year. Alleluia also participates in Minnesota Food Share Month in March.
Food rescue produce and Bakery Distribution
Twice per month, Alleluia partners with the CROSS Food Shelf in Rogers to rescue food from stores like Whole Foods and Trader Joes and makes it available for FREE to anyone. The Produce and Bakery Drop is held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 2:00 - 4:00 pm at Alleluia’s church office, located in the Colonial Mall at 403 Central Avenue. For more information, or to volunteer, contact Carol Bauer-Langager.
