Those who have not toured the new Greenfield Area Christian Center or are wanting to learn more about the program the cengter offers will be able to do so from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 30 when the GACC Board of Directors host a “ministry Showcase” at the center located at 912 N. Fifth St., Greenfield.

During the open house, community members can stop by to see the facility and learn more about the activities of the various ministries that are located at GACC. This will include a showcase of the food pantry program, the clothing store, the monthly cooking classes that are offered, and the youth ministry, New Directions. Visitors can enjoy light refreshments and snacks while they take tours of the center and listen to informational presentations.

“We have a lot of exciting things happening at the GACC,” said Danny Long, president of the Greenfield Area Christian Center Board of Directors. “We are extremely thankful for the continued support of the community and we thought this time of year would be perfect to host an open house so we can share what our ministries are doing to help local residents.”

Over the last few years, the GACC has built a new center which is home to the food pantry, New Directions (the youth ministry) and the Borreson Chapel. The new center, located on Fifth Street next to the longtime GACC location, also includes a community room that can be rented for special events and meetings. The old building continues to be home to the clothing ministry. The food pantry and clothing store are open to those in need on Wednesday afternoons.

With the holiday season around the corner, anyone interested in making a fully tax deductible donation can send checks to the GACC, P.O. Box 428 Greenfield, Ohio 45123. To specify the donation be made to the recently completed building, include the memo “building fund.”

The Greenfield Area Christian Center was founded in 1985 and is a non-profit organization 501-c3. Ministries of the Greenfield Area Christian Center include clothing, food, tragic and transient, education, and New Directions.

“These ministries would not be possible without volunteer support and the large donations from local churches, individuals, businesses and community organizations,” the GACC Board of Directors said in a news release.
