OGDEN — One church that continues to make an impact on this city is the Genesis Project through its ACTS “Reaching Across The Street As the Hands of Christ” Project.
ACTS is the service and outreach arm of the church.
“We take the job to serve and love our city very seriously, and we have fun doing it,” states the church website on the ministry.
Current ways the church is carrying out the project are an effort to “adopt” four city blocks in Ogden, a community breakfast at 10 a.m. the third Saturday of each month and a food pantry open to the community from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednedays at the church.
“Teams from our ACTS Ministry visit these blocks weekly to deliver love in a tangible way,” states the website on the adoption of blocks of Ogden residents.
Through groceries, yard work, and meeting any other practical needs the residents have, we believe we can show them that the love of Christ is real and active.”
Those interested in helping may meet at 10 a.m. Saturdays to help deliver groceries and perform service projects.
Also being collected for the effort are diapers, new or gently used children’s clothing, toiletries, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, shelving, dining table, couches, beds and sheets.
Tax-deductible donations may be dropped off on the east side of the church lobby.
