Heifer International
Members recycle cans and glass and  CA-CRV plastic for cash. The funds go toward helping third world communities become self-sufficient.

Save your cans & bottles!

Backpacks for Kids
Through South County Outreach members provide backpacks and school supplies for local disadvantaged kids each August.

Watch for info over the summer.

 

Interfaith Council Homeless Outrreach
Our church, as part of the local interfaith group, supplies meals for local homeless families. It is a wonderful opportunity to get to know other faith traditions as well as to help out those in need.

 

Food Bank
After the holidays when donations are low, members have the opportunity to fill barrels with food supplies that go to local families through South County Outreach.

Listen for desk announcements in church!

 

Institutional Service (ligthinprison.org)
There are 7 jails in Orange County and the 12 local churches provide 10 church services the jails every week. You can serve as a reader, a chaplain, or part of the support team. We also send weekly Bible Lessons and other appropriate materials to about 30 inmates that request it. The mural below was paid for by local churches and is in the Men’s Jail.

Join up: it’s rewarding!!

Lectures
We give one Christian Science lecture each year that is open to the public. In the recent past we have given a youth lecture at the beach and a Spanish lecture in Santa Ana.

 

Joint Lecture Group
Area churches work together to provide a longer event in a unique format that includes music, lunch, and questions and answers

 
Joint Media Committees
We support this group that provides a web presence with videos of local events and vast array of other resources: prayerthatheals.org
