Members of the Religious Society of Friends believe in “that of God in everyone.” As a result, community outreach is a natural part of our spiritual life. At Menallen Monthly Meeting, we are committed to assisting immigrants in our local community, tutoring English as a Second Language and participating in John’s Meals. In addition, individual members are active in hunger and homelessness concerns locally and nationally, college access for under-served students, and peace and justice issues in our community and beyond.
Members of local churches and other community groups meet weekly at the Community Room of Zion United Church of Christ Community Room in Arendtsville to fill backpacks with non-perishable food items. The food is sent home with elementary students from two schools in Upper Adams School District for weekend snacks, and is part of the John's Meals program.
