Every Sunday in November, we will be collecting items for two incredible local ministries.
Learn more below! There will be collection boxes for the items at both church entrances.
One organization we are collecting items for this season is Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP). They are a local non-profit (but also nationwide organization) dedicated to helping children in need sleep better!
SHP builds and delivers beds to children and families in need, and they also include bedding with each delivery! This is where we are able to bless this organization during this season!
Our church family can help make sure every child has a comfortable place to lay their heads by donating new twin size bedding. If you would like to help support SHP in this way, you can bring in new (in the package) twin size sheets, pillowcases, mattress pads/covers, comforters, blankets, or complete bedding sets for children in our area.

Riverbend Family Ministries (RFM) is a local non-profit organization that supports our community in a multitude of ways, and their annual Community Christmas event is one of the many ways they support and show love to local families in need!
During this event, volunteers and staff support around 150 families by providing toys and gifts for families to select for their children; then volunteers offer to wrap each gift or send home gift-wrapping supplies!
This year our church family has the privilege to collect Christmas wrapping paper, bags, bows, tape, etc. to help with the RFM Community Christmas. We would love for you to help us stock the gift-wrapping supplies for this event!
