Serving Others, Locally and Globally

Feeding the Hungry

Church of the Dunes provides volunteers and food to help serve those experiencing food insecurity. 

  • “Brown Bag” non-perishable food gatherings to benefit local pantries (quarterly)
  • Serve evening meals at Supper House (monthly)
  • Provide a week of evening meals for Family Promise of the Lakeshore (quarterly)

Gathering to Give

The congregation gathers things like school supplies and hygiene kits to those in need across the globe. Stitching groups meet weekly and knit, crochet, and sew blankets, scarves, hats, and mittens to share with veterans, new parents, patients, and others in need.
