Get Involved

We practice our faith in action. Join us as we take our practice into the world. There are many ways for you to get involved in our global and/or local programs. Check our calendar for upcoming events or contact the church for more information.

Meal Train for the Dinsmore Family
Clicking on the above link will take you to a calendar tool called “Meal Train,” which allows groups (such as our church) an easy way to coordinate providing meals for the family.  Simply click on the link, then select an ‘available date’ that you would like to volunteer.  Instructions and information are explained on the website.

Sweet Recycling
Join us in Albertson’s parking lot each month and bring your recyclables or help with recyclables left at church. Afterwards join us at Baskin Robbins for dutch-treat ice cream social. Proceeds benefit the youth group.

Fair Trade Project – Join us after Sunday morning worship for fair trade coffee and tea from Equal Exchange. Limited fair trade goods (such as coffee, tea, chocolate) are also available for purchase.
