Many members of the congregation are involved as volunteers in the wider community tutoring at an elementary school, assisting small businesses, working with scouts and a variety of other non-profits and social service organizations. Parishioners are encouraged to bring the food item of the month when they come to church on Sunday. These contributions are given to the food pantries at the Damien Center and to The Sharing Place.
We participate the annual Crop Walk, community walk sponsored by Church World Service that raises funds for hunger relief, locally and beyond.
We organize an Annual Rummage Sale in August for our members and the community. Leftover items are donated to: the Julian Center, Thrifty Threads, AMVETS, and Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Some items are listed on eBay and Craig’s List as well.
We are always open to ideas for new outreach programs, either one-time events or ongoing. If you have any ideas please let us know.
