Giving Trees

We will have two “Giving Tree” here between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Each tree will have “ornaments” with items needed such as winter socks, a jacket, gloves, etc. You can take an ornament, purchase the item, then place the item (with the ornament) under the tree.

One tree will be for families at Sand Creek Elementary, our neighbors across the street.  Sand Creek items must be here, by Sunday, December 9.

The other tree will be for the Severe Weather Shelter Network.  Shelter items must be here by Monday, December 24.

These “Giving Trees” can be a tangible way to teach your children about giving and the needs of people in our community. We encourage you to make this a part of your family worship, celebration and gift-giving.

Severe Weather Shelter

Severe Weather Shelter Network partners with organizations and agencies in the community to provide emergency overnight shelter on life-threatening winter nights for individuals living on the streets.We work with local churches to provide sites to host our guests overnight. At these Host Churches, guests can enjoy a hot, homemade meal as well as friendly conversation around the table. Aside from supplying a safe, warm environment overnight, we also connect our guests with other resources as their needs become known.

We are a Christian ministry, welcoming all volunteers who share our passion for aiding individuals experiencing homelessness. We do not expect volunteers to share our faith, but rather welcome them into a journey of serving together.

Volunteers in Action

Volunteers in Action is a cooperative ministry of a number of area churches that seeks to transform our communities around us by equipping and enabling Christian volunteers to love and serve their neighbors needing help.  Our goal is to enhance the lives of people who are elderly, disabled, low income or simply a neighbor who is struggling by walking alongside them in specific loving and caring ways.Volunteers in Action also educates and equips deacons and other servant leaders so that they can best bring positive change in their community, assist people who are struggling and needing help and to best carry out their role.
