Outreach

Food Pantry

Providence Food Pantry provides food boxes for low income Hospice families. Working with Hospice families is the place where God’s Spirit called us to be active. People are needed to put boxes together, keep records and make deliveries. Is there a place for you here?

Community Garden

The Garden Team organizes the planting, weeding, harvesting and distribution of vegetables each year. Children, youth and adults work together in the soil in order to serve God and God’s people and to ground their faith in creation. Everyone is needed!

Rupp Arena Concessions

Members of Providence Christian Church work in concession stands for all home UK basketball games. While we are working we are taking Christ outside the church building and into the world of those with whom we work. There is more here than meets the eye.

Habitat House

Every year Providence joins with other Disciples congregations in the Lexington area to build a Habitat House for a deserving family. Disciples for Habitat has built more than 40 houses since it began in the 1990’s in Lexington. We help build, provide food for workers, support the project financially and pray. Building a house takes a lot of people, no skill required. Could your faith be put to work here?

Worship for Elderly

The second Sunday of each month, we lead a worship service at Bridgepointe, a home for the elderly at 2 PM. The service is made up of Scripture, Prayer, Communion and lots of hymn singing. We always leave feeling better than when we arrived. Won’t you join us?

On-going Outreach Support

Providence actively supports many outreach programs. We donate blankets and school, health, and baby supplies to Church World Service. We collect coats and shoes for those in need. We support the work of  Week of Compassion. We have adopted a family at Christmas time and had a Christmas Party for children’s who have an incarcerated parent. We provide food for the weekend in a backpack for 10 children in a local school. We participate in Room in the Inn, a program for homeless men during the winter months. We have a homebound communion team who visits shut-ins. We help build a Habitat house. We grow vegetables in a community garden every summer to support our food boxes for Hospice patients as well as for other food pantries. We have members who work at Refuge for Women, work with Mission Behind Bars and Beyond, serve food at homeless shelters and much more. There is a way for you to serve God here at Providence Christian Church.
