Community Connections provides a link between the church and local community in many ways. Direct support is provided to numerous activities and indirect support to other community initiatives. The committee works in “project groups” and does not meet formally unless the project warrants it.  Projects include:

  • Blanket Sunday in February (Church World Services)
  • American Red Cross Blood Drives 5 times per year
  • Backpack and School Supplies Drive in the summer (Methodist Home for Children)
  • CROP Hunger Walk in October (Church World Services)
  • Clothing Drives Spring and Fall
  • Harvest Home Food Collection in November (local food pantries)
  • Adopt a Family project is in December (pastors’ discretionary fund)
  • Toys, food, and money are collected for A Woman’s Place at Christmas time.
  • Ongoing food collection benefits several food pantries.

Information on events and volunteer opportunities can be found in the newsletter, bulletin, or on the bulletin board in the llobby  regarding the volunteer opportunities for the current month and also ongoing needs.
