  • Homeless mat ministry

    Announced by Carol Simons on May 07 2021

    Would you like an easy way to get involved with helping the homeless?  We need volunteers to prepare the used grocery bags for the crocheters.  We also need more volunteers who can crochet or are willing to learn.   A huge thank-you to all who have donated plastic grocery bags and participated in other areas of this ministry.

  • Outreach and Ministry

    Announced by Carol Simons on Mar 25 2021

    We have bins in the church foyer for warm clothes and food item donations for the Center of Influence to hand out to those in need.

    We are also collecting items for the homeless ministry Volunteers of America.  Here is the wish list.  These items may be placed in the credenza by the entry doors.

    The other side of the credenza is where you can put your plastic grocery bags for creating mats for the homeless.  WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO CONTINUE THIS PROJECT.  Please contact Carol Simons (530-277-9431 or cjsimons@sbcglobal.net) if you are willing to crochet or willing to teach or learn, and/or are willing to cut bags.

    The Center of Influence is in desperate need of volunteers, especially for the food pantry (Mondays-Wednesdays from 10 AM to noon, and Thursdays 4:30-6:00 pm)  Please call the Center at (775) 470-5590.
