Monthly Community Dinners–Generally held on the second Thursday of the month. There is always a need for food and volunteers to help serve & set up the meal.

Examples of recent efforts: donating gift cards for those affected by the Hurricanes in Puerto Rico; collecting supplies for those affected by Hurricane Harvey; gifts for two Earl’s Place Residents for Christmas, sponsoring a local family at Christmas-providing clothing &
Christmas gifts.

Responding to the congregation’s needs: moving assistance for a member; furniture donation; fundraising; and couples counseling.
