serving in the name of jesus
SOME OF OUR SERVICE EFFORTS
Apple Day — Each year in October, we invite church members and friends of SVCC to pick apples for a local food bank or other non-profit organization. In 2014, about 75 volunteers picked over 4,400 pounds of apples for Northwest Harvest. See photos of Apple Day 2014 in our Photo Gallery.
Mission Trips — SVCC members occasionally travel to Honduras to serve with Little Hands, Big Hearts, a ministry to impoverished families and special-needs children in Honduras. These short-term mission trips offer members a chance to be a blessing to some of the poorest people in the Western hemisphere in the name of Jesus. At the same time, short-term missionaries get to step outside U.S. culture to view life and faith from a new perspective.
School Supplies Collections — We collect school supplies to help local schools and/or teachers, typically around August.
Christmas Caroling — To spread some holiday cheer, we like to take a group of 20-30 carolers out to sing, especially for senior adults and shut-ins. Watch for announcements about caroling opportunities beginning around the end of November.
