Each Sunday, home-baked goodies such as peanut butter cookies or brownies are donated for the “Munchies for Mission” table set up in the central courtyard. After worship, we gather for fellowship and to enjoy coffee or punch and some tasty tidbits on the patio. Those who are able place cash donations in the basket on the Munchies table. Those donations are supplemented by Deacons’ funds so that a gift is sent monthly to a local mission in which we have an interest.
These are the local groups supported:
January Habitat for Humanity of Orange County
February CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)
March Mary Magdalene Project
April Women’s Transitional Living Center
May Orange County Alzheimer’s Association
June Monte Vista Grove Homes
July Orange County Rescue Mission
August The Sheepfold
September Sunrise Child Development Center
October AIDS Services Foundation Orange County
November Acacia Adult Day Care Center
December Thomas House
The sign-up schedule for volunteer bakers is maintained by Rita Priest, currently Moderator of the Deacons and also a co-opted member of Outreach Ministry.
