Noah's Ark - Heifer International - During Lent, Mainesburg will be taking a special offering for Heiffer International's project Noah's Ark. After the money is raised, the children in the church will decide what animals to donate to the project. Collection banks are available upon request.
Prayer Shawls/Lap robes - Started in November of 2012, this ministry serves to reach out to those in our community in need of prayer. Shawls have been sent around the United states as needs arise. Congregation members lovingly knit, sew, and crochet these items, then they are blessed by the church during worship. If you know someone who could benefit from a prayer shawl or lap robe please contact the church office. We are also now working on pocket prayer shawls.
Care Home Ministry - Weekly worship services are offered at the local care home in Mainesburg at 6 pm Sunday evenings. These worship services have led to relationships with the residents which include being asked to throw them a Christmas Party and deliver meals from the monthly suppers.
Jill Cross Mission - A mission fund created in the memory of Jill Cross, who quietly served the Mainesburg community with her loving presence and generous spirit. Monies collected are given to families in need in Tioga County for such necessities as groceries, electric and heating bills, and rent. To donate or for more information please contact the church office.

Penny Sunday Mission Collection - Held the second Sunday of every month, Penny Sundays were originally used to offset the cost of Sunday School Materials.
