Several of the local organizations supported by our Outreach dollars or volunteer efforts also collect basic furnishings for those they serve. We have collection areas right in the church for a few of these; you may bring contributions during office hours (10:00 - 5:00 Monday through Friday) or on Sunday mornings.
