West Park Church helps a number of local agencies each year. The four primary organizations outlined below are the ones that we would like to highlight at this time. Individuals, LifeGroups, and families are encouraged to be involved in one-time or ongoing opportunities. Also mentioned below are several additional ministries that we will partner with from time to time.
Opportunities to work with these organizations will be highlighted as they arise. Periodic bulletin inserts and web updates will inform you of upcoming opportunities with our partners. There may be specific donations needed or people to assist with events. As believers, it is important that we show Christ’s love to our community by helping to meet the needs of those who are hurting.
After School Club Dinner:
On the first Tuesday of each month, a small team of volunteers prepares and serves dinner for a children’s afterschool program at London Community Chaplaincy (formerly Limberlost Community Chaplaincy)
If you would like more information or to help prepare food and/or serve, contact Elaine Gorden
