Loving Our Neighbor..... What better way to share God's love than
supporting our neighborhood. We actively and financially support the
Christian Help Center and Vallejo Together which provide shelter for
the homeless, meals, and support to our local neighbors to help them rebuild their lives. We are also actively involved with Steffan Manor
School, the elementary school across the street from us. We host
Rebuilding Together Solano County in a food distribution program at the church on Wednesdays and
Thursdays. We open our doors for several Narcotics
Anonymous meetings and for another church, Life In the Word, to meet.
More globally, we support Westminster Woods, a church camp located in the beautiful Redwoods near Occidental, Ca. Check out Mission Sundays and you will find out you can easily support poor farmers in third world countries. Our most recent Mission trip was to Eureka were we fed the homeless and helped with building repairs.
Rebuilding Together Solano County
Update as of July 2020
The Covid19 pandemic has resulted in changes to our process. That process is now as follows. Each Wednesday and Thursday a group of 10-12 RTSC volunteers work together to sort and fill boxes that will be given to our recipients who drive through the parking lot. Food is placed in their vehicles and they do not have to even exit their cars. (NOTE: the same volunteers work each week to avoid introducing different people into the working mix.) All workers are masked and gloved, and our temperatures are taken and recorded each morning.
On Thursday, volunteers drive to house-bound recipient's homes and deliver two days' worth of the food to their front porches. Our number of recipients has now increased to 70 each day.
