Jesus's teaching in Matthew 25 is very clear, His followers are to serve others. Below are several of our attempts to fulfill our calling. From time-to-time, we provide additional ministry efforts for our community.
Clothes Closet (BY APPOINTMENT)
Free clothes are provided for infants to around 5th grade. Clothes are primarily used clothing that has been donated from members of our community. A limited amount of clothing can be given to families and individuals. Those who receive clothing must come with a voucher provided by Love INC (503-537-399). RESTARTING IN OCTOBER.
Non-Food Pantry (TEMPORARILY NOT OPEN DUE TO THE PANDEMIC)
Twice a month we distribute non-food items to Love INC clients. These items include shampoo, paper products, cleaning products, and personal hygiene items. A voucher is needed. Call Love INC for information (503-537-3999). If you aren't a Love INC client, call them for an intake appointment. (MINISTRY CURRENTLY ON HOLD DUE TO THE PANDEMIC)
Loads of Love
Several times each year, our congregation provides all the quarters and laundry soap needed to do at least two loads of laundry at the Coin Laundry at Springbrook Plaza. Laundry is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Breaking Bread (NOT MEETING DUE TO THE PANDEMIC)
Busy lives need times of spiritual refreshing, especially mid-week. On Wednesday nights during the school year, a simple meal is provided at 6pm so families and individuals can then not worry about fixing dinner and are then able to attend Bible classes at 6:45. Not only are the meals and classes wonderful, the table fellowship is also very meaningful. Small donations are accepted.
We partner with Love INC to help serve our community. Love INC is a significant resource to help us be effective in meeting a variety of needs in our community, all done In the Name of Christ.
Caring for the needs of our members and community is important to us. We do not have unlimited resources but we do try to make an attempt to either take care of the physical needs of others or point them to where they might find help.
