Help us love our neighbors.
You don't have to be a Christian or be a part of our congregation to be involved with the work our congregation is doing in our community. Making the world a better place for everyone is an all-hands-on-deck effort and we would love to have you volunteer with us. Here are some easy ways to get plugged in and serve with us!
The Second Helping
The Second Helping, established in November 1998, is a Sunday evening community meal that is open to anyone who needs it. Guests are served a home-cooked dinner at 6:00 p.m. and given a sack lunch with food for breakfast and lunch the next day. We serve dinner on every Sunday, including holidays. The average number of guests served is almost 50 each week. We also provide meals to the Pawnee Crisis Stabilization Center each week. In a typical year, we serve about 7,000 meals.

The Blessing Box
Our Blessing Box is located on the southwest corner of our property, right next to the parking lot. People in our community who are in need of food and personal items can stop by 24 hours a day to take what they need.
Learn more about how you can be involved with the Blessing Box.
Social Justice Work
Are you looking for a place where you can make an impact in changing systems that marginalize and oppress? We are frequently active in justice work in our community, state, and nation and we'd love to have you join us. One of the best ways to keep up-to-date on what we're up to is by following us on Facebook or signing up for our weekly e-mail updates.

Serve the Church
We are a small-but-mighty congregation and it takes all of us to "Be the Church" together. We are always looking for helpers on Sunday morning - whether it's reading scripture, helping with the tech team, serving communion, shoveling snow, or more. You can sign up to help with Sunday morning tasks here. If you don't see the service opportunity you're looking for, please let us know.
