The Potter's Hands

Meeting the needs of neighbors in our community

What does The Potter's Hands do?

The Potter’s Hands will provide an avenue for men, women and their families to get involved in various acts of service in the community, meeting the physical and spiritual needs of neighbors who may be facing desperate circumstances. Spiritual growth is also developed in the mission of The Potter’s Hands.

We are a ministry that operates through the outreach and the facilitation of our donation center in order to be the hands and feet of Jesus, thereby advancing His Kingdom of love by assisting neighbors. This is accomplished by collecting and giving of furniture to families in need.

The Potter’s Hands seeks to touch the lives of individuals whose need is so desperate that it alters their way of life. Their ability to move forward is threatened by circumstances in which they have no other logical means of help. The Potter’s Hands will also reach out to further equip those ministries who are already doing the work to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ in their communities.
