Our Food Pantry is a member program of the Food Bank of Central New York and is open twice a month - the 3rd and 4th Thursdays of each month. Of course emergency cases come up occasionally and we do open up for that at anytime. The only requirement needed to participate and receive food is proof of identity of each person in the household. Most all of the participants receive food stamps, but that alone does not cover the whole month, so they need a supplement. If you would like to know more about the Food Pantry contact Connie and Veryl Briglin or the church office.

It's a fun, friendly, safe environment where they can spend time with old friends and make new ones, a place to find encouragement while experiencing new adventures. Most importantly, in everything we do, we strive to bring glory and honor to our creator and savior, Jesus Christ. Our regular meetings are Sundays from 6 - 8 PM at the church, but check the calendar for specifics.

The Men's Bible Study meets every Thursday evening @ 7:00 in the Fellowship House. Our focus is on studying the Word of God. Psalm 86:1 "Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name." In a world that creates so much noise in our lives it is good to come together as men and be still in order to know the God of the Bible. As iron sharpens iron, so we too are built up in the Word of God as we encourage each other. We have studied from both the Old and New Testaments progressing from a few verses up to a couple of chapters each night. We utilize different versions of the Bible and many men use study Bibles.
Mom's in Prayer meets Wednesdays from 10-11am, during the school year. Our mission is to impact the children, staff, and administration of the Cato-Meridian School District by gathering mothers to pray. Each month we reach out to the school with Words and Deeds to encourage and be a positive support to the school staff.
Ladies Circle The Ladies Circle is a long standing ministry of our church dating back over 50 years. Though changes have occurred over the years, our mission remains consistent: to deepen our faith through Bible study and prayer, to encourage and support each other, to participate in the life of the church, and to lend financial support to various projects. Most recently we have supported Heifer International, Samaritan’s Purse, and World Vision. The knitters in the group continue to send sweaters to World Vision for distribution all over the world.
Most meetings are held in the fellowship hall with a few hosted at a member’s home. Meetings are the second Tuesday of each month at 1:00 PM.
All ladies are welcome (and encouraged) to join us at any time; church attendance or membership is not required.
Delores Knight is our Chairperson and we are currently reading through a John MacArthur study of Colossians & Philemon.
Women to Women
Women-to-Women meet for a variety of events through out the year providing Christian fellowship opportunities for the women in the church.
Women’s Bible Study
The Women's Bible Study meets every 2nd and 4th Tuesday throughout the year. The Women's Bible Study meets in homes or the church fellowship hall and provides a small group study environment with an average of 6 - 8 women in attendance for each study. God always blesses the women who participate. There is always room for more women to join.
Current Women's Bible We are currently studying "The Twelve Disciples" a study on the lives of Jesus' disciples and the ongoing power of God to transform lives. All women are invited to attend.
