The people of Ruhl's Church volunteer with a variety of ministries in the local area. The church, as an organization, also provides support to a number of local ministries as we work together to make Manheim and Lancaster County a better place for its residents. We also hold Community Outreach events at the church building, such as the few described below.
God's Clothing Closet opens before the start of each school year. All donated clothing items for men, women and children are provided to shoppers free of charge. This has become one of our most popular and impactful events, with thousands of pieces of clothing being distributed on an annual basis. In 2019, we served a record of 660 people. Have clothes to donate? We accept gently used clothing all year long. Please call the church office at 717-665-3400 to make arrangements to drop off.
Churches host a Super Cupboard and provide volunteers to help in the kitchen or with childcare during classes.
Super Cupboard is a nutrition education program offered in partnership with Penn State's Cooperative Extension Service. It is a five-week course provided several times a year to low income caregivers with children under the age of 18 living in their home. In addition to learning how to provide nutritious and economical meals for their families, homemakers gain other basic life skills, such as budgeting and parenting.
Each summer, the fellowship hall transforms from a gym to an environment of adventure for children ages 3 through 6th grade. Through a different theme each year, they learn about God and His creation through Bible stories and live drama, while enjoying games, a snack and craft time.
