Make a difference in our community and for our planet
Habitat for Humanity
We are proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity and Presbytery of the Pacific to build new affordable homes across the street from our church building. Donations are being gathered now with building under way in the fall of 2017.
“We pledge to protect and defend vulnerable people in the name of Jesus.”
Matthew 25 is a national movement inspired by Jesus’ words, “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Particularly in this time, those who need protection are immigrants and refugees, those subjected to mass incarceration, and religious minorities who are the targets of hate.

Throughout the year we collect food for St. Joseph Center. Their mission is to provide working poor families, as well as homeless men, women, and children of all ages with the inner resources and tools to become productive, stable and self-supporting members of the community.

Give Urban Farms
We are proud to partner with Give Urban Farms, a non-profit organization started in the faith community. Give seeks to introduce urban farming practices that do not require traditional farms, large growing spaces, or massive water usage through the use of new technologies. The Tower Garden System (TGS) is soil-less and, due to its vertical aeroponic design, uses 90% less water than soil-based farming – plus it’s locally grown!

“God calls us to be careful, humble stewards of this earth, and to protect and restore it for its own sake, and for the future use and enjoyment of the human family.”
“We are proud to be an Earth Care congregation. To become certified as an Earth Care Congregation a church takes the “Earth Care Pledge” and complete activities and projects in the fields of worship, education, facilities and outreach.”
