The Lawrenceville Co-Op marked its 20th anniversary of incorporation on July 13, 2015. Twenty years ago on that date, Charles Kirkman signed the Co-Op’s official Articles of Incorporation for the State of Georgia. In the twenty years since that time, this intentionally Christian organization has helped thousands of clients and their families.
The Co-Op’s core values, as affirmed during the recent discernment and planning process, are stated in Luke 10:27: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength; and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”
Area churches, businesses, and individuals have donated the Co-Op’s funding and food supplies since the beginning, and hundreds of volunteers have served many, many hours, often directly serving clients and sometimes helping indirectly through services that strengthen this ministry. Special appreciation is expressed to the Co-Op’s Supporting Churches that make it possible for this ministry to continue. To God be the glory!
