During this unprecedented time, there are more people in need and many who want to help but want to do so safely and don’t know how. We are reaching out to the community and also inviting them in. We want to be the church on the west mountain that cares and shows they care!
Here is how we can do that in a tangible way.
Monthly N2N drive thru and drop off socially distanced food drive. From 10-1pm we will have volunteers collecting non-perishable food for the local food bank. Please remember to drive up from the west entrance and exit using the east entrance.
