OUtreach and Missions

Ruhl's Church is a gathering of people with a passion for serving others and helping those in need. We believe that every Jesus-follower is expected to "go and make disciples" (Matthew 28:19). Through local outreach efforts, national relief teams, and international ministries, We work together to spread His love to all people.

LOCAL OUTREACH

The people of Ruhl's Church volunteer with a variety of ministries in the local area.  The church as an organization also provides support to a number of ministries as we work together to make Manheim and Lancaster County a better place for its residents.  We also hold community outreach events at the church building, such as the few described below.

  • God's clothing closet

    God's Clothing Closet opens before the start of each school year.  All donated clothing items for men, women, and children are provided to shoppers free of charge.  This has become one of our most popular and impactful events, with thousand of pieces of clothing being distributed on an annual basis.

  • Vacation Bible School

    Each summer the fellowship hall transforms from a gym to an environment of adventure for children ages 3 though 6th grade.  Through a different theme each year, they learn about God and his creation through Bible stories and live drama, while enjoying games, a snack, and craft time.

  • Manheim food bank collection

    We have an on going collection for the Manheim food bank. A shopping cart is in our lobby to place your donations. We strive to help those who are local and in need.

  • SUSQUEHANNA valley PREGNANCY service collection

    We have an on going collection for SVPS. We have a manger in our lobby where you can place your donations. We collect many baby items to help mother's all around our area through SVPS. 

NATIONAL OUTREACH

Throughout its history, the people of Ruhl's Church have consistently worked to help the less fortunate of our great nation.  Whether providing crews for demolition and construction after devastating hurricanes, or serving the poor in remote areas, we work to impact the lives of other in the name of Jesus.

  • Relief Trips

    Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Flooding.  Natural disasters wreak havoc on the lives of countless Americans each year.  Teams from Ruhl's and related organizations go where relief is needed to provide help with demolition, reconstruction, and encouragement on the ground in states impacted by violent storms.

  • Youth Mission Trips

    Many youth experience strong spiritual growth by getting out of their comfort zones and experiencing the needs of others.  A mission trip can give a new perspective and set the stage for a life of service to others who are less fortunate.
