Community Outreach

During 2020, we focused on warmth. Our outreach included providing prayer and meal support to the Lawrence County Health Department and providing supplies to help the homeless population of Springfield. We also added an OACAC People's Pantry on our property and began planning for a Free Little Library. 

OACAC People's Pantry

The OACAC Pantry has been widely used since its installation in 2020. Ray and Marsha Crotts and Dan and Ginger Ellsworth have been instrumental in keeping the pantry stocked. We use the following list as suggestions for pantry donations, but we've seen lots of great things come in that are not on the list, so we encourage creative donations. You can drop off donations at church on Sundays or contact Marsha Crotts
