Cleaning Supplies Drive

Cleaning supplies are in very short supply, and our homeless and food insecure families are in desperate need of them. We are holding a cleaning supply drive to benefit Family Promise and GRACE. As part of our World Communion Offering, please bring cleaning supplies to church (bin just inside the glass doors) by October 4.  All household cleaning supplies are welcome including bleach wipes, hand soap, multi-purpose spray, bathroom cleaner, etc…

Help Feed Those in Need

Now is the time to be the church.  Small acts by individuals and families can collectively make a big difference.  As a church community we are committed to helping our vulnerable neighbors who have lost jobs and income during this time, and to our homeless neighbors who are particularly vulnerable.   Click here for actionable steps you can take to Be The Church now.
