Community Kitchen

Every Thursday evening at 6:oo pm different groups offer a free meal for anyone in the area. If you are interested in leading a group of your own or helping one of the existing groups with meal prep and meal service, please contact the Church Office (metoliusfriendschurch@crestviewcable.com)

Brown Bag Food Program

The first Friday of each month we partner with Neighbor Impact and the Oregon Food Bank to offer a supplemental food program for anyone who needs extra food to help make ends meet. The food that we receive (roughly 1,500 to 2,000 lbs.) is all donated from area grocery stores.

We need 20-25 volunteers each month to do everything from sorting the food we receive, checking dates, setting up tables and chairs, cleaning, staffing tables to serve clients, and more. We ask for volunteers to be at the Church at 3:00 pm the day of service. The truck delivers the food at 3:30 pm, registration for clients begins at 4:00 pm, and then we start the service at 4:30 pm where clients are allowed to “shop”.

If you would like to help, you can drop by the Church on the first Friday of each month, or you can contact the Church Office for more details.

Church Service Opportunities

Church Property Care: We are continually looking for help in taking care of the Church grounds. Mowing and watering are crucial in the Summer, and cleaning snow in the Winter. We have periodic work days usually in the Spring and the Fall where we do quite a bit clean up as well.

Sunday School & Children’s Church Teachers: Do you have a love for kids? Then getting plugged into our Children’s Ministry might be a great fit for you! We offer Sunday School at 9:45 am on Sundays and we have lead teachers and back up helpers for each class. The lead teachers prepare the lesson and do more of the teaching, while the back up helpers are there to keep the kids on task and help in any other way needed.
