Centre Hall-Potter Food Pantry Grace is blessed to host the Centre Hall/Potter Food Pantry. A small group of volunteers established the ministry in 1983 and has provided food to families 11 months out of the year ever since. Food scarcity has grown which means the need for volunteers grows, too. Volunteers arrive the morning of the third Tuesday of the month (except for August) to package the food to that qualifying families will pick up between 1:30 - 3 pm.
Donations are accepted throughout the month via marked boxes at the church. Non-perishables like soup, cereal, pasta, canned vegetables, bread and more are appreciated. Fresh produce, when available, is also needed. Families living in Centre Hall or Potter Township who need food are encouraged to call the coordinator at 814-364-1675 for more information. If you are willing to help with the effort, use the same number to volunteer.

A part of Global Ministries, UMCOR works in more than 80 countries worldwide, including the United States and its terri-tories. The agency’s mission, grounded in the teachings of Jesus, is to alleviate human suffering with open hearts and minds to all people.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck southern Turkey at 4:17 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 6, 2023, the most powerful earthquake recorded since 1939. In the hours that followed, at least 78 aftershocks were reported, followed by a second earthquake of 7.5 magnitude.
The earthquake and aftershocks also impacted northwest Syria, where 4.1 million people depend on humanitarian assistance. Syrian communities, many of them women and children, are simultaneously facing an ongoing cholera outbreak and extreme winter weather, including heavy rain and snow.
Support relief and recovery efforts for this is Advance # 982450
