Opportunities to put

your love for God into action

"...we are God's accomplishment, created in Christ Jesus to do good things. God planned for these good things to be the way that we live our lives." 

Ephesians 2:10 (Common English Bible)


    In December, we celebrate with the Community Kitchen patrons at a holiday event just for them.  For more information serving at the Community Kitchen, contact Allison or sign up at this site. For information on the holiday event, contact Rev. LuAnne. Until December 7 we are collecting gift bag items for our holiday event. THANK YOU for your generous donations! The only item still needed is $10 Gift Cards for: Meijer, Dollar stores, and Gas Stations

    Donations may be brought to the church office during the week or on Sunday mornings. Thank you for sharing the love of Christ with our community!

  • refresh: Hygiene and Hope

There are opportunities to serve in person, by "Sharing a Load" of laundry, by donating some of our often-used items, and by helping provide meals, especially on Wednesday evening.
