local MINISTRIES & MISSIONS
The Jimmy Messier Memorial Youth Center was founded after the death of a little boy from a complication with heart surgery.
We felt compelled to provide a place for kids to come
and just be kids. Ever since our organization was established,
we have endeavored to provide a fun and safe place for kids
from all walks of life.
The mission of Martha’s Kitchen is "to improve the quality of life and to restore dignity to hungry individuals and families by providing nutritious food and camaraderie in a safe, warm and caring environment for all who enter our doors."
Noticing the need for a soup kitchen in St. Albans, several churches in the area (including GPBC) came together to start Martha's Kitchen in 1983. It continues to be supported by many local churches, providing a much needed place of warmth, hospitality, safety, and nourishment.
