Service Opportunities

Welcoming Table - Tuesday nights from 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Our church serves a free meal to anyone in the community who would like to attend every Tuesday night. We are continuing to grow and currently serve an average of 60 meals each week. If you would like to help, please talk to Pastor Linda or Laura, or drop by between 5:00pm and 8:00pm to help set up, serve food, and/or clean up. If you can't help, but wish to make a donation, please put it in the offering marked "Welcoming Table."

We are pleased that others in the community have started to help us with this important mission as well. Zion UCC serves the first Tuesday each month, New Hope Assembly of God serves every third Tuesday, and Kiwanis Club will serve when there is a fifth Tuesday. We have also received generous donations from Esselte and the Pasta House. Thank you to all of our volunteers!

ALIVE (Alternatives to Living in Violent Environments) is looking for volunteers to act as receptionists in their office in Union. The office hours are 9 a.m. through 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The number of hours worked and schedule would be up to the volunteer. Please call 583-9863 for further information.

DON’T FORGET Best Choice UPC codes are worth money! The Festival of Sharing benefits from UPC codes cut off Best Choice products. There is a collection box in the church foyer. The Festival of Sharing donated to hunger projects in the US and other countries.
