Giving to Our Community

Outreach Team

The Outreach Team provides monthly opportunities through Outreach Connections for our congregation to learn about and offer financial support to local organizations that address the needs of people in need of basic food, shelter, and/or education. Special donation receptacles are available after worship services on the second Sunday of each month, and donations specifying “Outreach Connection” or the agency name may be sent to the church office throughout the month.

The Outreach team also has the privilege to allocate a percentage of our church giving to worthy causes: locally, nationally, and internationally. The goal of these gifts is to address immediate and ongoing needs of those who are suffering. International support this year includes donations to Casa Materna in Nicaragua and to Marilyn Chan, a United Methodist missionary in Cambodia. Local organizations receiving support include:

Monthly Food Drive

Our monthly food drive takes place on the first Sunday of each month. Please bring to church nonperishable food items, which will be donated to the Community Services Agency (serving Mountain View, Los Altos & Los Altos Hills). View the flyer to learn more.
