Community-wide events to jump in and participate, volunteer, or invite friends!






Gift collection deadlines: PWP ~ Wed, Dec 6 // MaD & Trinity families ~ Wed, Dec 20

The Adopt-a-Family program was started in an attempt to serve the working poor in our community as well as families in need through our partner organizations, Parenting With Purpose and Trinity Lutheran Congregation. Over the years, many people have expressed gratitude, explaining that they would have had nothing for Christmas if not for the Adopt-a-Family program. MO adopts over sixty families every year! Donated gift cards will help a family purchase gifts for their children. Sign up for a family in the Welcome Center.


Deadline for PRISM gift collection is 7pm Wed, Dec 13 // Deadline for HomeFree collection is Wed, Dec 20

Last year many children were able to celebrate the holidays with a gift that wouldn’t have been there without our help. We will be collecting toys for PRISM and children staying at Home Free over the holidays. Pick an ornament from the trees in the Welcome Center, and choose a tag that lists gender and age range. Purchase an appropriate gift for a child in the age range you selected and place theunwrapped gift ($15-$30) under the tree. Thank you for making the holiday brighter for children in need in our community!
