Mission Opportunities

Serving With Abundant Compassion

Are your tomatoes and peppers ready to share?
The first tomatoes grown in embers’ gardens have been brought in to be delivered to the food pantry. Clients are thrilled to receive fresh vegetables. If you have produce to share, please bring it to the information desk in the rotunda and it will be delivered to the pantry.

PADS Mission
Our next opportunity to help those most in need in our community is Monday and Tuesday, August 26-27 at Trinity Church in Wheaton. If you would like to give of your time or help with food, please contact the church office.

Care Kits for the Homeless
When you see a person begging on a street corner in Chicago, or walking the traffic line looking for handouts, are you unsure how to respond? When our high school youth worked with the Chicago Bridge Project in March, we assembled small care kits that contain a cereal bar, beef jerky, bandaids, ointment and wipes all rubber banded together. These handy kits can be kept in your car or in your bag to hand out so that you can positively respond to these requests. The WF youth group and confirmation class have provided a basket in the rotunda with some of these care kits for our congregation. While supplies last, please take a few so you can share a little bit of love with someone in need!

Food Pantry
The People’s Resource Center and Interfaith Food Pantries are emptying out their summer stock. They are in need of canned goods, whole grains, shaving cream, disposable razors, feminine hygiene products, bar soap, toothpaste, shampoo, toilet paper, laundry and dish detergent and diapers, especially sizes 4, 5 & 6.

Roseland "Good News" Day Care Center
We are currently collecting formula and baby food as well as diapers and wipes for Ms Pearl. Bring your items to the Rotunda coat room marked Ms Pearl.
