COMMUNITY-WIDE PROGRAMS AT GREGGTON
At Greggton, we believe in the power of community. We have several programs that we partner with to support our mission of transforming the world through the making of disciples.
The Unforgettable Tuesdays Day Club is a program created to provide a safe, loving environment for individuals with memory loss. Every Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the club is in full swing with breakfast, snacks, a full lunch, social activities, crafts, low-key exercise, and entertainment. The program provides participants with purpose and one-on-one support from professionals and experienced volunteers. The Day Club, started in 2007, is hosted by Greggton Global Methodist Church (1101 Pine Tree Road).

MOBILE FOOD PANTRY
On the first and third Thursdays of each month we partner with the East Texas Food Bank to fight hunger right here in Longview from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The mobile pantry program enables the ETFB to get out on the front lines of fighting hunger by partnering with local organizations to provide regular drive-thru distributions of fresh produce and food items to those in need. This program is completely free and open to the public with no eligibility requirements.
