Opportunities to Serve

Love Thy Neighborhood January Spotlight — The Giving Closet. As the temperatures drop, the need for winter clothing increases dramatically. For the month of January, we are collecting clean, gently used coats for The Giving Closet. They are especially in need of coats for men and women. Place your donations in the designated collection bins located in the church lobby.

Giving Closet • 2804 B NE 65th Ave, Vancouver, WA 98661 • 360-993-4800. www.givingcloset.org. For information on how you can help at The Giving Closet, contact vicki@givingcoset.org.

Vancouver Jail Ministry gladly accepts your donations of soft-covered Christian reading material. The jail no longer accepts magazines. These materials help encourage inmates, and gives them inspiring thoughts! Please bring your donations for the Jail Ministry to the church office.
