The Blessing Post: Giving to Those in Need in the Manchester Community


Alesia Free Methodist Church hosts the Blessing Post in partnership with Saint Paul’s Independent Church.
As we distribute household items to local families in need, we share the love of Christ. Join us to receive the blessings of giving to others in Jesus’ Name.



The third Saturday of every month between 8 and 11 a.m.


All Saints Hall, on our church’s lower level


Please see the volunteer sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the narthex.
Volunteers are welcome to drop by the Blessing Post on the third Saturday of every month. Signing up allows you to receive updates about any schedule changes.


If you would like to support this effort by helping to refill our supply of household items, please use the list below as a guide. You may also make a monetary donation to the Blessing Post through the church.
