MINISTRY
Can you help on Sunday Mornings!


We need help each week for Sunday Worship & Fellowship to run most smoothly.....

 The Emergency Warming Center has been open 22 nights this winter with many more ahead this week. Served 43 human guests & 3 dogs. Providing 152 overnight stays. We also helped 3 families with children connect with private homes for one night.

In an emergency, are you willing to open up a bed or floor space for a family or special needs person in your home? Since we are unable to have children under 18 share the EWC space and all the hotels in the area often fill, it is a gift to provide folks an option for 1 night..
