We are collecting cards from Giant, Karns, Weis, Target, Walmart and Kohls in any denomination.  Cards can be dropped in the box at Guest Services in the church lobby. 

  • Know a family that's always running out the door?  Arrange to drop of dinner, snacks or even a treat to allow them to enjoy a few moments as a family.  Not a chef?  Pick up some take out or contact the church office and pick up a freezer meal from the Meal Team.

foster family support

You’ve heard the saying, “it takes a village to raise a child.” This is not more true than foster care. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding a child entering care, foster families open their homes and their hearts in a time of crisis. What better way to love our neighbors than to love those that are already loving others in this big way!?

We are so excited to kick off a Foster Care Support ministry. While the vision for this ministry is HUGE, we’re ready to launch Phase 1 and begin collecting items for a supply closet that will be available to families in our county. (We hope to have enough items to offer the supplies beginning this fall).

Learn more about the vision behind this ministry from Hope Coombs (Kids Ministry Director) and Megan Safko (Reach Director).
