Donate, volunteer, spread the word, and help your neighbor!

aChurch4Me MCC upholds 7 values, which we work to live out within ourselves and one another.  Faith in Action is one of those values: to actively listen and respond to what God is calling us to do and to be to make our lives, our city and the world more just and loving.  One path to create a more just and loving world is to see those around us in need.

Sometimes seeing the need is overwhelming and it can be hard to know where to begin.  As a community of faith, we were led to The Night Ministry as a partner to put our Faith in Action.  The Night Ministry compassionately provides housing, health care, outreach, spiritual care, and social services to adults and youth who struggle with homelessness, poverty and loneliness.   May GLBT and straight teenagers and young adults rely upon the food, shelter, clothing, supplies, education, and support The Night Ministry offers daily. Now and through May, aChurch4Me MCC is stepping up in two ways to assist The Night Ministry:  Donations and Volunteering.  Please carefully review the information below and prayerfully step forward with donations of items or time as you are able.

Donate Items:  Youth, young mothers, and adults  

Now through Mother’s Day, Sunday May 13 Boxes for donations are in the back of the church. Please bring one or more of the following items for the Night Ministry:
