How You Can Love Your Neighbor

Many of you have inquired about how we will be helping support people who are most vulnerable during this time. We will keep finding ways to be a light for Jesus in our community! In partnership with the organizations that have reached out to us, we have compiled a list of ways to get involved. Please go to the links provided and find a way to help if you can. Together, we can begin covering these great needs. Questions? Email

Household Goods Drive
We're supporting families in need by donating household items. There is a desperate need for these items as they are NOT able to be purchased with the SNAP food benefits card.  Assistance with these items allows for people to shift their money to other pressing needs like rent or utilities. Please drop these items with the crew handing out food boxes on Thursday mornings, beginning at 10am. Drop off location is in front of the Main Church entrance by the flagpole (701 N Main Ave). Items needed:

laundry soap
dish soap
Lysol spray
disinfectant wipes 
diapers

.

FOOD DISTRIBUTION in partnership with AMEN Ministries

If you are in need of food, we will be distributing food boxes every Thursday beginning at 10:30am at our Office Complex, (539 N Main Ave.) first come, first served. We will distribute all the food boxes on Thursday mornings until we have run out for the day. Note: there will be perishables in the food box, so you'll need to be able to refrigerate some of the items in a timely manner. 

"HELP BOXES" through Safe Families for Children

In partnership with Safe Families for Children and DHS, we want to help meet the needs of families who are on the edge of care during this pandemic. If you can help, join us in providing "help boxes" to struggling families. The box consists of groceries, diapers and wipes, children's activities, etc. and you can sign up to help deliver the "help box" by filling out the form here.
