Church Bus Ministry

The Church Bus Ministry is a very rewarding and important part in the  opportunity for individuals to worship each Sunday who otherwise would not be able to come to church. We are need of adding Bus Drivers. A CDL License is not required, just a willingness to drive about every seven weeks.  If interested contact Buzz Schoenbeck at 644.2082 or

Diaper Depot

Our Diaper Depot is in need of volunteers and help on February 19th and March 18th from 10am-1pm. We will need help bagging diapers and handing the diapers out to the families that come in, there’s not much more to it!

We are also in dire need of your contributions, either monetarily or diaper donations. Our ministry outreach has more than DOUBLED over the last few months and our need is greater than ever. If you would like to donate diapers, please remember that we accept PAMPERS, HUGGIES or LUVS and we are especially in need of sizes 4, 5 and 6.
