Our church office receives many phone calls asking for various social services that are in fact handled by local organizations (both government and otherwise). Should anyone need those local services or ask you about such services, you can point them to countyoffice.org.  From County Office's website, their "database includes all types of government offices, including administrative, legal, health, tax, finance, commerce, education, property, social services, public works, law enforcement, emergency services, and judicial offices."

Pray for the persecuted church

The first and second Sundays in November are widely recognized as the International Days of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.  They serve as reminders of the 100+ million believers worldwide who face persecution for their faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  In over sixty countries, 300+ Christians are killed each month because they follow Jesus. Over 200 church buildings and Christian-owned properties are destroyed each month.

Hats and gloves ministry

Each year we distribute sandwiches, hats, and gloves the day after Thanksgiving to those in need.  You can help in many ways: providing lunch meat, making sandwiches, making hats, and/or traveling to areas in Portland and Vancouver to hand them out.  Bring your leftover turkey (or other meat) to the kitchen at Glenwood on Friday, November 24 at 10:00 a.m.  After making sandwiches, we will carpool together.
