Eastridge Food Pantry...
Food collection and monetary donations are taken all year to help stock the Eastridge food pantry. Aldersgate volunteers work whenever needed with people from Eastridge to box up foodstuffs and personal items that will be delivered to the needy. Food and monetary donations may be left in the grocery cart in the Fellowship hall. Volunteers are needed when it is our turn to box the items for delivery.
The Aldersgate Artisans meet each Wednesday morning to do a variety of maintenance work around the church. For example, they take care of the memorial prayer garden. After completing the tasks for the week, the group shares fellowship over coffee and cookies.
The Peace Advocates is a local support group that works for Peace with Justice, helping to sponsor the yearly "Peace with Justice" Sunday. The Peace Advocates were instrumental in placement of the Peace Pole near the entrance of the church.
Nebraska United Methodist Bike (NUMB) Ride...
Annually, several members of Aldersgate have participated in the NUMB ride. People give pledges to each rider, which goes to the Nebraska United Methodist church for work on local, national and international hunger projects.
Aldersgate purchases SCRIP gift certificates and cards at a discount and sells them for full price to members. The SCRIP program has been used to support the church building growth and maintenance. SCRIP is a national program used by many churches around the country.
There are times when special events and services will be scheduled at the church. Please contact the church office if you are interested in using part or all of the church for a special event in your life.
