Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth 1 John 3:18
How To Serve
E.S.C.A.P.E. Ministries is operated through Faith in God's Grace; God is ultimately the source of our provision. We are blessed by the efforts of our faithful volunteers, those that stand with us prayerfully, and those who are able to support this ministry through financial or in-kind donations each month. Their efforts are great, but unfortunately the need is only growing. Since the beginning of the year we have seen an increase of approximately 40 new families a month in need of assistance. During the year 2013, we had received 350 first-time visitors in addidtion to currently being served.
We currently are in need of more volunteers to work whatever days and hours possible. The ministry is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm and the 3rd Saturday of each month from 8:00 am until noon. Set your own schedule. Any help is appreciated.
