Things to do & Ways to Help

Trunk or Treat

This event is a partnership between our Preschool + Membership and Fellowship Committee + Children and Youth Ministries.

We are looking for folks to donate candy AND folks who are willing to decorate (or not decorate) the TRUNK of their car. (Cars will be parked in our church parking lot, trunks are open, kids run from trunk to trunk for treats). See the video below for an example of a trunk or treat. Sign up below to donate candy or decorate a trunk. 

Sack lunches for the homeless

Our SACK LUNCHES for the Homeless (brought to church on Sundays) are delivered each Monday to the Open Shelter downtown. Watch the video above to see the shelter, and hear the gratitude of one of the guests for this ministry, and see our own Adam Limbach doing a Monday delivery. And watch what follows--a hilarious few seconds of the Surface family putting together a LOT of sack lunches! THANK YOU to our congregation for feeding the homeless each week!

Reminder: Sack lunches can be brought to Fellowship Hall on Sunday 8-10 a.m. Each lunch is to include: a PB&J sandwich, bag of chips, small container of applesauce, piece of fruit, juice box or Capri Sun, bag of cookies, napkin and spoon.


Steve Hayner, a steadfastly joyful, much-loved Presbyterian leader, was healthy, fit, and serving as president of Columbia Seminary when he found out he had pancreatic cancer. He and his wife, Sharol, created a powerful testimony to the surprising and engaging way that they chose to live in the face of death. "I believe this book offers a guide to finding spiritual strength for life's valleys, and I welcome you to join me in a two-session discussion of the book." - Pastor Julia

At Session One, we’ll learn more about Steve Hayner’s ministry as orientation for reading. We’ll read the book between Session One and Session Two.

By Zoom (limited to 15 participants)
Wednesdays, October 13 and 27, 6:30-7:30 pm


As we return to normal capacity, you can add to the joy of each worship service by volunteering to greet people as they arrive, on any Sunday. Greeters are asked to arrive at 9:20 or 9:30 a.m. Responsibilities include a friendly "Good morning!" and a smile asking people not to enter the sanctuary before 9:30 a.m. We need a greeter for each church entrance, every Sunday. Interested?
