The Food Pantry of Waukesha County advocates to increase awareness of hunger in the community and promote collaborative action to provide food to those in need.
Food placed in the shopping cart in the Oak Room is distributed to the Food Pantry (as well as the Salvation Army and Hope Center). Food donations are always needed.
CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events sponsored by Church World Service and organized by local volunteers to raise funds to end hunger.
Locally, our walk takes place at Frame Park and includes a food drive, whose collections are then passed on to the Food Pantry of Waukesha County, as well as a socks-and-underwear drive, donations of which are brought to Hope Center’s Clothing Shop.
Hebron House of Hospitality aims to provide basic needs (shelter, food, and clothing) to people in Waukesha County that find themselves in a housing crisis. Hebron House offers short term assistance to homeless people as they seek to find more stable housing and employment.
The second Wednesday of each month, the Deacons provide the fixings for a meal for the residents of Hebron House.
Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and then ship these meals to nearly 70 countries around the world.
Hope Center has been serving the basic needs of local people with financial assistance, free food, free clothing, and free furniture since 1987.
Twice a year, we take a turn in preparing and serving a Sunday afternoon meal to the visitors of HOPE Center ("Loaves and Fishes"). Financial contributions and contributions of ingredients and desserts are always welcome for these meals!
Interfaith Senior Programs is a faith-based, community-centered non-profit organization whose programs include the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and the Faith in Action program.
Each winter our Deacons coordinate this church’s contributions to the Holiday Giving Program, which provide necessities like stamps and gift cards to the clients served by Interfaith.
The Adult Day Center is for adults 50 years of age and older and aims to enrich their lives by providing them with creative stimulation, unique socialization, supportive health services as well as respite and assistance to families and other caregivers.
The Caring Place was begun as a ministry of our church in 1987 and we continue supporting The Caring Place in a number of ways, including tending to their laundry needs.
The program’s purpose is to promote good health and independent living by providing home-delivered meals for people living in the City of Waukesha and portions of the Town of Waukesha. The Caring Place Meals on Wheels is distinctive for its services to clients of all ages and for its therapeutic, individualized meal plans.
This program began with our church and many of our members continue to actively be drivers.
Big Yellow House (C.A.R.E.)
Family Service of Waukesha runs the C.A.R.E. Center (Child Advocacy Resources and Empowerment) from the Big Yellow House on the corner of East and South. They provide services to children and adolescents who are suspected victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse and/or neglect. Our collection for the PC(USA) Peacemaking Offering has been designated to them in recent years.
The Salvation Army, an intentional movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
Each winter we assist in the traditional bell-ringing near the Salvation Army kettles.
St. Joseph’s Medical and Dental Clinic supports the health of uninsured and low-income residents of Waukesha County. They provide access to free or discounted medical and dental care, medications, and related support services.
Our Deacons make regular financial contributions to support the work of St. Joe’s. If you would like to increase their contribution, note “St. Joe’s Clinic” in the memo line of your check.
The mission of The Women’s Center is to provide safety, shelter, and support to women and their families and to facilitate their development. The Women’s Center provides free and comprehensive services designed to address the issues of domestic violence, sexual assault, and abuse.
The Deacons contribute financially to the important work of The Women’s Center and welcome additional contributions.
