Chesapeake Church Summit Helps Warm Needy Families

For too many families in Calvert County, winter weather brings a slew of concerns, including how are they going to heat their home?
    For the 10th year, Chesapeake Church’s Summit Men Ministry stepped up to meet this need.
    On Saturday December 3, more than 130 Summit Men’s group members armed with trucks, wood splitters and cutters, axes and willing hands and spirit cut and loaded 92 truckloads of wood and delivered it to 46 less fortunate families. Each family received one cord of wood; for many this firewood will be their only source of heat.
    “As a church, taking care of those in need in our community is what we are called to do,” said Jeremy Robinson Community Life Pastor at Chesapeake Church.
    The majority of the families who received the firewood use the church’s Chesapeake Cares Food Pantry, which serves nearly 900 families every week.
    “I can’t think of a better way to serve those with the biggest need this time of the year,” said Bob Sickle, Summit Men’s Leader.
