Committee Chairperson, Kathy Sanford, has a full plate of mission and outreach opportunities in which anyone can become involved. Our hands-on service work helps us connect our faith to our daily lives through our actions.
Community Food Share, 650 South Taylor Ave. Our monthly work day is scheduled for the 3rd Wednesday from 1:00 PM-3:00 PM.
Eldershare, food distribution to our senior friends takes place at the church on the 1st and 3rd Thursday mornings of every month.
Sister Carmen Thrift Store, 710 West Baseline Rd, our monthly workday takes place on the 4th Saturdays of each month from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM.
Sister Carmen Food Pantry ~ nonperishable food donations are received on an ongoing basis through the white cupboard pantry located just next to the kitchen door in the church foyer. Our goal is to donate 1,000 pounds of food in 2017.
Pumpkin Patch ~ Now through October 31. Buy pumpkins here (grown by a local farmer). All proceeds will be given to UMCOR (United Committee on Relief) to aid in disaster relief efforts.
We support EFAA (Emergency Family Assistance) Apartments with monthly donations as they are communicated to us. Bins behind the Welcome Center receive these donations. Currently, our residents especially need bleach, diapers (size 5 and 6) and wipes, deodorants for men and women, body wash for adults, and toilet bowl cleaner.
EFAA receives our gifts through Angel Tree. During the upcoming holiday season, look for a Christmas Tree just outside the sanctuary with angel ornaments. This year, we intend to support all 11 apartments including the parents or guardians as well as the children.
Anyone can get involved with Mission and Outreach activities. Seasonal and even weekly Mission and Outreach opportunities come up all the time. Updates will appear on this page so check back often, please.
