Harvest at The Living Well The end of harvest season is upon us after a long, dry summer. Each day God gives us the opportunity to harvest, even after a hot, dry summer. Regardless of the conditions of our harvest, we can always find hope in the future with our faith in Jesus. During our hardest days, weeks, and months Jesus provides us with life giving light for our personal harvesting. Light is a key ingredient for a successful harvest and each day we wake up to personal light through Jesus. Our responsibility through our faith is to continue shining the light on others. As followers of Jesus, we are charged with spreading the Word of God through our actions, our vocabulary, and our planning.

The Living Well invites you to come along with us on a journey of Faith
Sometimes we forget that faith has a starting point. For some of us our faith journey began in childhood. Or maybe you developed a framework of faith based on personal experience. Or maybe you had no faith at all. Too often our faith formed in childhood isn’t strong enough to withstand the pressures of adult life.
The emergency food pantry is supplied by The Keuka Food Pantry and the people of Yates County. People can utilize the pantry every three days to help supplement their household food supply. Needs N Things is our dry goods pantry (deodorant, laundry detergent, shampoo, sop, etc.) and can be accessed once a month by a household member. In July, 2016 with help from the Keuka Area Fund and The Penn Yan Rotary Club we opened a Perishable food pantry. Every three days a household member can receive milk, eggs, cheese and/or fresh produce (depending on availability).
A ministry of the United Methodist Churches of Yates County that offers a safe, welcoming, respectful space and staff, dedicated to helping individuals with immediate needs and resources. We will do this by helping with emergency needs such as: Food Dry Goods Utilities Referral Services Vouchers for Emergency Needs Informal "Coffee House" Worship Volunteers and financial support are welcome.
Mary, Mary, quite contrary, How does your garden grow?
As you can see our garden was growing, in hopes to be able to offer fresh home grown vegetables at The Living Well. But, as we all know, this year’s garden did not produce as much due to the drought that was throughout New York State. But thanks to our local farmers we did receive produce so we were able to supply fresh vegetables and fruits to our community. THANK YOU, FARMERS.
