Community Food Bank
We are pleased and honored to serve the community of South Lyon by providing food expressly supplied and donated by the members of our congregation. Up to 30 families are supplied with food to help them get through the month for their family. Food distribution is from the church building on the 3rd Friday of each month from 10:00 am-12:00 pm. (it is held on the 2nd Friday during the month of December)
Our community food bank is not government funded in any way and gives us the flexibility to meet people where they're at and to share the love of Christ. Therefore, the only requirement to receive food from the distribution is to have a valid ID that shows you live in the South Lyon, Lyon Township, Salem Township, Brighton Township or Green Oak Township area.
Winter Men's Shelter
Every year in the winter, shelters for the homeless become filled to capacity and these shelters look for help to take care of people who need places to stay to keep out of the cold and the snow. At South Lyon Church of Christ we take time each year to help the Delonis Center in Ann Arbor provide food and a place to sleep. This winter we will provide help during the week of February 26 - March 5, 2018.
Each evening we pick up 20-25 men at the Shelter, feed them dinner and provide places for them to sleep in our church. The next morning we provide breakfast and transportation back to the shelter in Ann Arbor. Each year our congregation is in need of volunteers within the congregation and the South Lyon community for this undertaking.
Thank you to all our volunteers in the past, and we look forward to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through this special ministry in the future.
