Weekend Food Bags

Our church family provides Weekend Food Bags to over 270 children at Jupiter Elementary, Jerry Thomas Elementary, Limestone Elementary, and Jupiter Farms Elementary. Food is stored and packed on church property and then transported weekly to the local schools for distribution during the school year. It is an honor to serve our youngest community members and assist with eliminating food insecurity. This ministry is funded by the generous donations of our church family and Jupiter community members. Please click below to email Stephanie Lovell to help with packing and distributing:

A group of women who gather weekly on Monday mornings that share the same passion for sewing, knitting and quilting to help those in need. The items they make are distributed to children in need (handmade clothes), babies in the neonatal unit (booties, blankets, and hats) and veterans (quilted blankets).
