Jesus said, “When you served those often ignored, you served me.” We follow Jesus’ teachings by taking action in the communities where we live, work, and play to help all God’s creation thrive.
Feeding America Food Distribution
We host a community food distribution on the 3rd Tuesday of each month in our church parking lot. Help is always needed to set up, distribute and especially to clean up afterwards.
Just in Time for Foster Youth
We are proud to support the wonderful young adults at Just in Time as they transition out of the foster care system. Volunteer opportunities range from helping the young adults choose furnishings for their new homes to mentoring to moving furniture. No matter how you serve, your participation is greatly appreciated!
On the second Monday of every month (with a break in the summer), follow the sounds of laughter and sewing machines whirring and you will find this group of volunteers in Fellowship Hall creating beautiful quilts for veterans, shut-ins, and members and friends in the hospital. Even if you don’t know how to sew, we will find a job for you in the creation of these quilts.
Prayer Partners covenant to pray every day for submitted prayer requests. Anyone can be a prayer partner, but we request that you sign a covenant promising to pray every day. Covenant forms are available in the church office if you want to be a part of this life-changing ministry. We would love to welcome more prayer partners to join us. Prayer requests can be submitted in the offering plate using the green pew cards, or simply call the church office or contact any of the prayer partners.
