OCC Boxes Needed-The Shoebox Ministry is in need of lots of 6-quart plastic boxes. We sent over 500 boxes last year and used nearly all of our supply, so we have some work to do to restock in preparation for shoebox 2021. Please leave all donations in the designated basket in the foyer. See Tom Johnson with questions.
Plateau Outreach Ministries–
Plateau Outreach Ministries is a non-profit organization that was formed over a decade ago to assist neighbors in crisis. Hillside, along with other Churches of the Plateau Ministerial Association, have joined with members of Enumclaw plateau communities to help those in crisis, translating Christ’s call to “Love Thy Neighbor,” into action. POM focuses on basic needs: food, clothing, housing, emergency financial assistance, and case management, including counseling referrals for issues causing crises.
Winter Shelter Ministry-
Eight years ago, Plateau Outreach Ministries, in cooperation with area churches, began a homeless ministry in Enumclaw. During the three coldest months of the year (December-February) host churches take turns opening their doors every night and offering participants a hot meal, a warm place to sleep for the night, and breakfast in the morning. Volunteers stay at the host church all night and offer assistance, play games and socialize with the guests. It’s a rewarding way to show the love of Christ to those in need.
Pies for the Tacoma Rescue Mission–
Every year a growing group of volunteers gathers together to make and bake pies for the Tacoma Rescue Mission’s Thanksgiving dinner. It’s not only a rewarding ministry but a fun time of service and fellowship!
The Deacons Fund was set up to help those in the congregation that are struggling financially. We highlight Deacon’s Fund Sunday when we have Communion, but you can donate to this ministry at any time.
Angel Tree Ministry–
Prison Fellowship believes that no life is beyond the reach of God’s power, and they envision a future in which countless prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families, are redeemed, restored, and reconciled through the love and truth of Jesus Christ. Each year at Christmas time, Hillside participates in the Angel Tree ministry that delivers gifts to the children of incarcerated parents. It’s our opportunity to share the love of Christ with children in need.
