Serve Our Community

The Metro Mission Ministry is the central point of information for the many local service and ministry opportunities available through the church. 

If you are looking for a service opportunity, please contact Catherine Stark-Corn.

Donations Guidelines for Mission Partners. During the pandemic, our mission partners were overwhelmed with huge donations and have put a pause on receiving general donations.  The Metro Mission Team created the monthly “Collection Connection” when requests specific items as indicated by partner agencies. Click HERE to review new Donation Guidelines before bringing items to church. 

Collection Connection

Donate requested “item(s) of the month” or make a financial gift to the Collection Connection. Read the weekly newsletter for information about the items being collected throughout the year. Past examples include toothbrushes for Nicaragua, personal hygiene items for Christmas stockings, and yarn for the knitting ministry.

Virginia Reed Food Drive

Ways to Give to the Food Drive – We have three easy ways to share the bounty with the hungry in our community:

  • Make a financial contribution to the church and mark your check or giving envelope “food drive.”  You may place these gifts in the offering plate during worship.
  • Participate in Souper Bowl Sunday, an annual winter campaign to raise funds for local food agencies.
