Mission & Outreach

Disaster Ministry

Since 2007, New Gosh members have organized mission trips to various parts of the country and beyond, helping people and communities recover from hurricanes, tornadoes, and other natural disasters.  For some communities, like New Orleans, this included mission trips over several years.

  • Harleysville area (storm damage)

  • Daytona Beach (hurricane relief)

  • Bethany Children's Home (maintenance)

  • Atlantic City (superstorm Sandy relief)

  • Tuscaloosa (tornado recovery)

  • New Orleans (hurricane Katrina relief)

  • Rhoad Island (Irons Homestead maintenance)

  • New Orleans (hurricane Katrina & Rita relief)

  • N. Carolina (Franklinton Ctr @ Bricks maintenance)

  • Guatamela (earthquake recovery)

  • New Orleans (hurricane Katrina relief)

Feeding the Hungry

New Gosh participates with local mission teams feeding meals and collecting food for those in need.  This includes the "1st Monday Meal" dinner where New Gosh members travel to local churches to prepare and host community meals. 

Working with our community partners, New Gosh collects food donations which are then distributed to those in need by the local food pantry at Open Link (click here for Open Link Food Pantry details).  

New Gosh has also hosted an Older and Wiser Luncheon for community members 80 and over.  A number of persons from local nursing homes join with our members to enjoy a day out, with food, fellowship, and entertainment.
