Meet the Need Ministry

Who we are:

Meet the Need is a fundraising ministry of MGC Youth that sells coffee and pastries to raise money for needs in our local community. The ministry is led by Eric Vavrinyuk and supported by Inna Gritsak. The youth at Missionary Gospel Church serve as volunteers for baking pastries and selling.

Our mission:

Our mission is to make a difference in our local community by meeting the physical needs of people in the name of Jesus Christ.

What we do:

In the fall, winter and spring months, we sell fresh, quality coffee and home baked pastries after MGC youth services twice a month. Each time, different people volunteer to bake goodies. We sell Starbucks Coffee and Peet’s Coffee along with the baked goods. All proceeds from the sales go to sponsor a new need in the community each month. In the past, funds have been allocated to buy lamps for a disabled man, Christmas presents for needy families, and socks for the homeless, among others. Meet the Need also allocates some funds for outreach services.

How you can get involved:

You don’t have to be an expert baker to get involved with Meet the Need. If you can follow instructions on a box of cookie or cupcake mix, you’re qualified! Just sign up with Eric Vavrinyuk or Inna Gritsak to get added to the volunteer list. If you enjoy making coffee or have exceptional selling skills, we’d love to plug you in too. Or, if you know of a need in your community that we can support, please let us know. We’ll be glad to help!


How you can pray for us:

  1. Pray for our volunteer bakers, coffee makers,  and sellers.
  2. Pray for wisdom for Inna Gritsak to distribute the funds wisely to the people who need them most.
  3. Pray for all the people who support Meet the Need by buying coffee and pastries and in doing so help meet the needs of their local community in the name of Jesus Christ.


How you can financially support us:

You can support Meet the Need by coming to an MGC youth service and staying until the end to buy your coffee and pastries! For additional donations, please make checks payable to “Missionary Gospel Church” with “Meet the Need” in the memo field. Or, give cash donations to Eric Vavrinyuk and Inna Gritsak and you will receive a cash receipt.
