Local Outreach

Let us not love with words, or speech but with ACTIONS and in TRUTH.

Local Outreach

God gave us spiritual gifts to share with others. Serving in the community is a way to share these gifts. 

HELPING HANDS

Light building & repair
Use your building skills to bless our elderly and hurting. This ministry helps in several ways: in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, helping outreach organizations with needs, and as needs arise from our community.

Breaking Bread

Feeding the homeless
Once each month we prepare and serve delicious and nutritious meals for the men, women and children who reside at Elizabeth Inn Homeless Shelter. Also, throughout the year, we prepare meals for church functions. Meals are prepared at Hillside. You may choose to cook or server.

Elizabeth Inn Laundry

Washing clothes for the homeless
Several time each month we wash clothes for the residents of Elizabeth Inn Homeless Shelter. Each resident places their dirty clothing in individual baskets before they go to sleep and wake up to clean clothes to wear.

Forever Fed

Mobile food pantry
Forever Fed receives food in several days throughout the week. The food is sorted onto portable shelves, then loaded on the box truck. This truck goes to areas where transportation is a know issue providing a food pantry where needed.

Prison Ministry

KAIROS
Sharing the Love of Christ is what prison ministry is all about. Through KAIROS prison ministry weekends, inmates experience the kind of love that can only come from God. KAIROS changes lives and restores hope in the hopeless. Servants of KAIROS are thoroughly before going into the prison.

HUGS
