Outreach

The Gathering Inn

We are part of a collective of churches and organizations who host and support The Gathering Inn's rotating shelter program that serves the homeless in our community. On the 2nd Wednesday of each month, we are honored to host The Gathering Inn at St. Augustine. We prepare and serve dinner, and we could always use an extra hand. If you're interested in lending a hand, you can find the signup binder at the Welcome Counter.

We also hope you will bring us your ideas or current ministries that could use some help financially or in other ways. Our goal is to help you find your mission, your ministry or help you make your mission grow. If you have a ministry project that needs funding, please complete a funding request form and provide a completed W-9 form.
