Members of Souderton Mennonite Church serve in the community by helping those with identified physical or economic needs make necessary minor or upgrades to their houses. Home owners help with the work or cost to the best of their ability. Volunteers and financial support is needed for this program. To volunteer contact Keith Reid 215.272.9335.

The Worm Project is a global initiative that strives to relieve the suffering of millions of children by distributing pills around the world, which purge worms from the intestinal tract. Each pill costs a few cents and is good for six months! Their goal is to give attention to the most humble — the sick and worm-infested children who seem to have few opportunities to rank on anyone’s priority list. To donate go to www.wormproject.org. Or mail a check made out to The Worm Project and send to Franconia Conference Center, 1000 Forty Foot Road, Lansdale, PA 19446

Pay-It-Forward Frontline is a new way to show appreciation for local frontline workers, while also supporting the local economy through Souderton/Telford restaurants during a time of uncertainty.
The SMC Care Fund has seeded this program in four local restaurants and invites SMC frontline workers to be among the first to enjoy a meal of appreciation! We hope this initiative will grow and bless many. If you would like to participate as a donor or to receive an appreciation meal, see details here and follow and share the Facebook page here.
Children participating in the Bean Bag Food Program receive much needed breakfasts, lunches and the weekend "Bean Bag" backpacks containing breakfast, lunch and snack items.

The Bean Bag Food Program has partnered with Penn Valley Church, Telford and Indian Valley Faith Fellowship, Harleysville to provide free bags of groceries not only to our Bean Bag families but to ALL families in the community needing food.
