Furniture & Household Items Needed
Now. Spring semester has begun at our local colleges and with it we find many new students scrambling to furnish empty apartments. We are particularly in need of desks, bookshelves, tables, and chairs to deliver to them. Bicycles are also in demand as well as simple household items like irons and ironing boards, lamps, dishes, silverware, glasses, pots and pans, etc. If you have something you think we can use and would like to help us warmly welcome a new student with the love of Christ, please contact Hans Bletterman at 714.504.3276 or .
Ongoing. Our Food fund is in need of these items: canned soup and vegetables, beef stew, chili, baked beans, canned fruit, tuna, jelly, mac and cheese, noodles and spaghetti sauce. Please bring food donations on Sunday mornings and place them in the large gray bins located throughout the campus and near the elevator in the parking structure. Thank you for your generous participation in the Food Fund ministry!
Ongoing. A visitation ministry open to singles, couples and families who wish to visit a member of the community who is homebound. The volunteers are committed to visiting this person once a month and calling them twice a month for a period of one year. We are in partnership with assisted-living and skilled nursing facilities within a 5-mile radius of our church—part of our intentional desire to be externally focused.
