Supporting Our
Community Service Partners

The emphasis of our Community Service Team from its inception has been to invite us into roles of serving alongside the most vulnerable in our community.  We have partnered with select community service organizations who provide such opportunities. In addition to this relational engagement, CST also presents us with ways to contribute through service projects.  With this year’s coronavirus restrictions, our ability to serve in person has been curtailed. Nevertheless, we have made an impact through our giving and support of these community partners.

Redwood Gospel Mission’s Great Thanksgiving Banquet

We contributed gravy packets and pies in the amount of $2,098.  Additional dollars donated for this project where added to RGM’s year-end gift (see below).

Angel Tree (Christmas gifts to students of Kid Street Learning Center).

In addition to the 85 students who will receive a wished-for gift item from our congregation, someone gave $5,000 toward this project. With this money each Kid Street family will receive a $50 Target gift card and teachers and staff a $50 Amazon gift card.  

CST combined the unused 2020 budget with funds from a designated account to give year-end gifts totaling $17,300 to support the following community service partners:

     Catholic Charities  $2,000
     Kid Street Learning Center & Charter School $2,000
     Living Room $2,000
     Presbyterian Preschool $2,000
     Redwood Empire Food Bank $3,000
     Redwood Gospel Mission $4,300
     Westminster Woods $2,000


Financial Report

Our giving for the fourth quarter has fallen short of expectations and added to our year-to-date deficit.  In past years our December giving has overcome such deficits.  We ask you to pray with us that we might meet this challenge.

The Angel Tree gift drop off is Sunday December 13 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM in the church parking lot.  The Community Service Team will deliver the gifts to Kids Street who has planned a drive-through Christmas giveaway.
Church Directories may also be picked up Sunday from 1:00 to 3:00 PM in the church parking lot without having to leave your car. For those unable to  pick up their copy of the directory, we will make arrangements to distribute it to you in the coming weeks.
