AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM:
Every Monday and Tuesday from 4-6 p.m. during the school year, approximately 25 children from the Ben Chambers Elementary gather at King Street Church for homework help, a warm meal, and friendly interaction.  Through the leadership of Jeanie Helman, our Children’s Outreach Coordinator, and a wide variety of volunteers, we show the love of Jesus in a unique way, right where we live.

ONCE MORE MINISTRIES:
This ministry shares the love of Jesus and builds relationships with our neighbors by sharing toiletries with those who cannot afford them.  They work with the disabled, those with serious illnesses, unemployed and low-income families, single mothers, victims of domestic violence, the homeless, and many others in Franklin County.  The ministry is led by Tracy Mentzer and Dixie Cantrell.  The church will collect toiletries in the lobbies in February, May, August, and November.

CIRCLES:
Circles is a community program that supports families trying to get out of poverty by building relationships across class lines.  King Street Church partners with Circles to host approximately 20 families each Thursday night for a meal and time of training and fellowship.  Circles recruits “allies” to mentor each family and come alongside them in their efforts.  At this time they have 33 allies in the Chambersburg area, 1/3 of which are part of KSC.

AGAPE ENGLISH PROGRAM:
Each Saturday, the Agape English Program meets with approximately 14-18 ESL students, 2-4 faithful teachers and several childcare volunteers for a room full of children.  KSC is loving neighbors by helping them to help themselves— all for the glory of God. We are always looking for more helpers.  You don’t have to be a teacher to serve, and you definitely don’t have to know a foreign language.  Just be friendly!  You are encouraged to come out any Saturday evening at 5 p.m. and observe the group in action.  Contact Sue Marshall to learn more: susmarshall721@gmail.com.

NETwork Ministries:
NETwork’s mission is to share in the love of Christ with those who are most vulnerable in our community.  They especially seek to equip children/young adults with the skills necessary for spiritual growth, academic achievement, Christian leadership, and life management.  They connect youth with mentors, provide opportunities to love and serve others, and share the gospel with the kids and their families.  Find out more at http://networkmin.wordpress.com.
