Social Concerns Ministry Team


October is month that the social concerns team collects gently used coats for the homeless population at Share Inn @ Orchards.  Collection runs through the month and ends October 31st.

Food collection for the Thanksgiving food baskets will begin early this year, with collection starting on Oct. 22nd.  All food items need to be brought in by November the 5th.  Assembly of the baskets will be on November on 12th, and distribution will be November on November 16th. 


 To be a part of these projects, you may also contact the church office at 360-892-7160 or use the Discipleship Opportunities (DO) form on Sunday mornings, or make your desire known to the social concerns team.
