BREAD & JAM COMMUNITY DINNER
On the 2nd and 4th Monday evenings of every month, we host a free community dinner from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. Everyone is welcome to join us for a meal, conversation, and a safe place for the kids to play. Volunteers have fun working together preparing, cleaning up or just visiting with our guests who come. The Dinner does not take place during July and August

FOOD FOR HALE JR. HIGH SCHOOL HOMELESS TEENS
Cash or food items in individual packages are generously given to be bagged for these homeless students. Food can be left in the food pantry drawer in the entrance of our church. A check can be made to YACC with notation for Hale Jr. High School.
DISCIPLES WOMEN’S OUTREACH
Volunteers reach out on many projects chosen each year. Some of these are Meals on Wheels, Disciples Village, Church Women United, Church World Service, Northeast area Disciples Women, United World Missions for Jeff Osborn (missionary from our church to Taveta, Kenya, East Africa), and YACC church family needs. When there is a special need volunteers are always ready to reach out. All women at YACC are invited to attend to Disciples Women meetings.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Each summer VBS reaches out to the church and the community with a Bible enriched program which includes a snack supper, singing, craft, science, and Bible stories. Volunteers are welcome to help with this ministry.
Yale Avenue has always responded generously to the needs of the children on the tree.
Before Christmas one or more names of children are picked from our angel tree, and gifts are bought and then returned to the church to be given to the children who may not get a gift for Christmas.
This activity is a Church World Service program that raises the awareness and funds for international and local hunger fighting programs.
GOOD SAMARITAN HEALTH SERVICES
Volunteers help with paperwork, directing patients and offering prayers to patients coming to the Good Samaritan health service organization that provides medical care for the underserved.
We always need help replenishing our food pantry. Thanks to everyone for an ongoing great response to this need. Food can be left in the food pantry drawer in the entrance of our church. Checks can be made to YACC noted for food pantry.
