For many years, we have been supporting our international brothers and sisters through Heifer International. This group provides and teaches life-changing skills to those who need help in far away lands.
We are passionate about being helping hands for the Eastern Plumas food pantry, found in downtown Portola. For some, this is all they have. Please join us, and give graciously in love, for those in our community.
The last Wednesday of every month is a Community Dinner at the local Catholic church. It is supported by many of our local businesses, individuals, service and faith based organizations. Come and have a great meal and meet new friends!
Every day, a warm and loving meal is provided for any Senior in our area! They can come by bus and eat with their friends or, if feeling under the weather, their meal is brought to their home. This is a bright spot in their day, and we help support them
with our gifts.
Children worship with the adults on Sundays, and can then either leave after the scripture reading for a loving Sunday School lesson, or stay in worship.
Youth group meets at different times during the year, depending on the season. If God is calling you to assist with the most important ministry of our church, our kids, please call the church office! Working with kids matters!
