One Church Street
Nourishing Our Community
June is Hunger Awareness Month. 1 in 8 adults and 1 in 5 kids don’t know where their next meal is coming from, but you CAN help. “Adopt a Jar” for June and put all your loose change in it. We’ll put this towards the remaining fundraising needed to finish One Church Street.
We can’t wait because our neighbors shouldn’t have to.
Pick up your jar at the church office or grab one on Sunday.

May 17, 2023 – Yesterday was a great day at One Church Street as we walked Northville students through our reconstruction project, told them about the history and talked about the purpose of the building as a Community Resource Center. Thanks go to CT Male and VMJR for planning things well and to Northville Schools for getting student ‘boots on the ground’ in our very real world of hunger, care, career choices, construction and nourishment.
April 14, 2023 – Check out these photos – the new wiring pole is in! Quite a job, but a great day to do it. Why do we need a new pole? Because our wiring needs for One Church Street are increasing and the old pole simply couldn’t do the job any more.
April 4, 2023 – For over 30 years, the Johnstown Hospital Foundation has been a staunch supporter of health programs in our community, including the Food Pharmacy currently under construction at One Church Street. When completed, the Food Pharmacy will use clinically-proven nutrition programs to combat chronic diseases like diabetes that are associated with food insecurity. Here, Johnstown Hospital Foundation board vice president Paul VanDenburgh presents a check for $160,000, representing the Foundation’s total donations to date, to Tom Bell, chair of the One Church Street Steering Committee.
March 29, 2023 – Check out this video to see how the folks from VMJR, who are working so hard to make One Church Street a reality, are lifting two 25 pound bags of grout up to the second floor. Such a nifty little lift, don’t you think?
March 27, 2023 – Thanks to Stewart’s Holiday Match program we now have $2250 to purchase good choices just for kids at the Food Pantry. Here’s our youngest volunteer, Ben, standing near the Kids’ Section with the award letter. Stewart’s is always serving up something good for our community!! Thank you, Stewart’s Shops!!
The Good Big News!
A friend of One Church Street who loved our project and our mission was always worried about how we would continue to maintain the building once it was complete. WE worried about that too. Our friend thought of a way to help that shocked us. Recently he passed away and he left us a sizeable sum of money, over $600,000, to be used as an endowment. While we can’t spend it for construction, we can invest it and use the interest to keep One Church Street running, to keep the lights and the heat on for the foreseeable future. What an extraordinary gift. While it is not a miracle in itself, it is miraculous to us! So very, very grateful for all we have today.

Food Insecurity, which essentially means not knowing where your next meal is coming from, is a pressing problem in Fulton County. The rate of food insecurity is growing in our county, and ranks as one of the highest in the state. Currently, one out of every eight families lives with food insecurity.
