MISSIONS: Serve

Lakeshore is commited to volunteer service projects in order to help others in the Greece area.  There are many projects planned for this year and also some ongoing projects that people can volunteer to support. 


 

Lake Ontario Flooding 2019

Lakeshore Community Church cares deeply about the community we live in. Lake Ontario has risen to all-time record high levels, exceeding levels set in 2017.  As the water rises and the wind blows, increased wave action impacts many of our neighbors in the Greece, Hilton, Parma, Hamlin, Rochester, Irondequoit and Webster communities. 

All New York counties along the shoreline of Lake Ontario are under a Governor's State of Emergency, in addition to local town and county emergency declarations, which free up resources to prepare for and protect against flooding impacts, as well as limit boating activities near the shoreline. 

Lakeshore stands ready to assist our members, regular attenders, neighbors and the community as the potential flood event evolves.  The Lakeshore Missions team will serve as the conduit for mathcing requests for assistance with available resources.  Examples include, but are not limited to:

Before the Flood:

  • Sandbagging and other flood-proofing assistance.
  • Packing and moving assistance.
  • Photo documentation of pre-flood condition for insurance / disaster assistance claims.
  • Comfort and prayer.

To Request Assistance: Please complete this FORM and we will respond to you as soon as possible.

CHRISTMAS DAY RECOGNITION -- December 2018

On Christmas Day, a group of Lakeshore people drove around Greece and Rochester to recognize those that had to work on Christmas Day.  Four cars and about 10 people handed out 67 gift cards and Lakeshore cards to workers in various businesses.  People were very touched that Lakeshore would visit them and recognize them on this special day.

Lakeshore Kids & World Vision -- August 2017

On August 20th (both services), the Lakeshore Kids partnered with World Vision Kits to assemble 250 Promise Packs for shipment around the world. All Promise Packs will begoing to children in Africa.

Here is what the kids accomplished:

Adults involved      40           
Children involved   80
Promise Packs      250

 

 

 

 

 

 The Need:  Around the world, millions of children are unable to attend school simply because their families are unable to obtain or afford basic school supplies.  The lack of access to the most basic hygiene supplies, and the risk of insect-borne illnesses like malaria can rob children of their health, happiness, and hope.  Every 60 seconds a child dies from malaria.  The insect repellant blanket included in each Promise Pack prevents the spread of the deadly disease.
