Sharing the love of Jesus Christ with the world.
Our mission here at Tallahassee Heights is bringing the love of Jesus Christ to our surrounding community. We believe our community isn’t limited to a few miles around our church, we called to share the love of Christ around the world. We partner with different groups, organizations, and individuals who share our call and vision.
Wednesdays // 4:30pm // Fellowship Hall
Farm Share is a Tallahassee Heights mission to our community. We partner with state-wide food distribution agencies and local businesses to put food in the hands of families and individuals in our community who need it most. We support this program with food donations and volunteer hours to include pick-up, sorting and distribution. To volunteer, please contact Debbie Pottorff (850-877-6276).
-***Until further notice, due to COVID we will be offering a drive through distribution. This includes commodity distribution and a hot meal to go. We realize not everyone arrives at our distribution by car. Those traveling by public transit, on foot or bicycle are also welcome.***
Farm Share Guidelines:
- Farm Share distribution will begin at 4:30pm. No exceptions, please. If the weather is bad, you will be invited inside to wait until distribution begins.
- If you have a specific need, please contact Pastor Ken through the church office.
- Leftover items are used for the next Farm Share meal or shared with other organizations such as Teen Challenge, Wisdom’s Wellspring, or Lighthouse Children’s Home.
- Each household is to receive one bag. If you need to deliver a bag to another household, please make note of this when you sign in; you will need to provide their name, address, number in household, and you may sign your name as “delivered by ______________.” (A limit of one bag delivered)
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project, is a program created by Samaritan’s Purse, a non-denominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. The mission of OCC is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children across the globe, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. OCC brings joy and hope to needy children around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s love. Since 1993, more than 94 million shoe box gifts have been delivered to children in more than 130 countries.
THE PUMPKIN PATCH
Coming October 2021
Many in Tallahassee may not know our church by any other name but the “Pumpkin Patch Church.” In fact, we’ve had the privilege and honor of bearing this name for 28 years! The Pumpkin Patch brings a taste of fall to families in the community. Saturdays in October are especially fun as visitors can enjoy pony rides, bounce houses, face painting, special photo areas, food and music. The proceeds from each pumpkin support the next year’s patch and more importantly, go to various missions around the world, including Fellowship of Christian Athletes, our sister church in Cienfuegos, Cuba, Porch de Salomon, The Shelter, Teen Challenge, Samaritan’s Purse, and A Woman’s Pregnancy Center.
PORCH DE SALOMON - GUATEMALA
Porch de Salomon is a progressive, multi-faceted ministry, strategically located in Panajachel, Guatemala. This ministry operates Solomon’s Porch Cafe to serve and build relationships and dialogue with skeptical, post-modern expatriates and tourists. They provide flexible humanitarian relief to Guatemala’s indigenous people; food, housing, medical care, school scholarships, substance abuse rehab and more, as well as hosting many short-term mission teams year-round. Lloyd and Melanie Monroe founded Porch de Salomon in 2004 and have lived in Guatemala since 2005. Lloyd was a civil trial lawyer in private practice for 23 years before he and Melanie left their home and families in Waukeenah, Florida, to serve as full-time, volunteer missionaries.
A WOMEN'S PREGNANCY CENTER
The mission of A Women’s Pregnancy Center is to equip women and men with information and resources to make life-affirming choices and to share the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. All services are offered free of charge , including pregnancy tests, educational ultrasounds, information about pregnancy, abortion, and adoption, parental development, and assistance with maternity and baby needs.
THE KEARNEY CENTER
The Kearney Center provides 24-hour comprehensive emergency services to individuals experiencing or on-the-verge of experiencing homelessness within the Big Bend (8-county) region. This facility serves as a point of entry into assistance by coordinating services and responding to the immediate needs of individuals and families until appropriate permanent housing can be arranged.
BIG BEND FRONT PORCH
Every third Sunday of the month, after the fellowship luncheon, members of Tallahassee Heights gather to assemble 100 bagged lunches in support of the local Big Bend Front Porch ministry. This ministry devotes its energy to passionately serving and advocating for people who have physical and spiritual needs throughout the Big Bend of Florida. The lunch assembly is lead by Tallahassee Heights United Methodist Women, but all are welcome and invited to participate.
CIENFUEGOS UNITED METHODIST CHURCH - CUBA
The Cienfuegos United Methodist Church in Cuba and our church have established a covenant to support each other in spiritual growth. Each would include the other in prayer and when possible send a church representative to participate in our sister church’s ministry whether in Florida or Cuba. We should continually keep our sister church in our prayers. Members can visit our sister church through the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church.
