Happening in Missions

“In the same way, though there are many of us, we are one body in Christ, and individually we belong to each other.” ~ Romans 12:5


March Collection: Schools & Children

This month we are collecting snacks, which we provide weekly for Hidden Valley’s Saturday school program students, and items most requested by our neighbors in our partner communities, which we stock in several school resource rooms. These items are often not part of their monthly budget. There are two ways to donate: shop from the Amazon Wishlist below and ship items directly to the church, or shop on your own and drop off items to the Missions office. If you shop on your own, please purchase only the brand specified. Thank you for your generosity.

The Meadows at Plato Price Building Project

Construction has begun at this Habitat for Humanity community supported by your Hope is Here contributions. Our first of three dedicated build days is this Friday. Our job site spots are already filled, but there are still opportunities to support volunteers with meals, water, and camaraderie. Click here to sign up! The next build days are April 1 and April 15.


The Bulb Collection

The Food Insecurity Team is excited to partner with The Bulb, which provides (mostly) local produce and health and wellness education to food insecure neighborhoods through weekly markets. We are installing a permanent collection bin in the Parish Life Building lobby to collect empty, clean one-dozen egg containers and plastic or reusable shopping bags. These items are used regularly at the weekly markets and are a great help to our neighbors transporting fresh food home.
