Monthly Service Opportunities
Second Saturday Missions
Started in 2014, Second Saturday Missions highlight a different mission project each month that can involve elementary-age children and youth in addition to adults.
Quilting for Others
Since 2002, our quilters have provided quilts for Stork’s Next, Methodist Manor, Exodus House, and Circle of Care. Donated quilts have been auctioned off at the Boys’ Ranch Rodeo and the Maranatha Sunday School Class Christmas auction to raise money for missions. The group has great fun working together, and always encourages visitors, including anyone who is interested but has never quilted before. Donations of material or money to purchase supplies are always appreciated. The group meets the first Friday of every month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Local Youth Missions Boston Avenue
Good Samaritan Fund
Last year, our church provided emergency help to over one hundred individuals and families through our Good Samaritan Fund. The fund is kept going through donations from generous church members, and is used to help people in dire need by helping pay for utility bills, rent, bus tokens, etc. Each request is assessed carefully, then the funding goes to the vendor to pay the bill, not the individual.
