DURING THIS TIME of CORONA VIRUS giving of yourself is the greatest way to love God and to love your neighbor (our vision as a church). The Board of Deacons organizes ministry teams to provide care for the entire church family and often to the community beyond. These teams welcome participation from members and nonmembers alike. Training and support are enthusiastically provided! For information please contact Rev. Jan Cook.
"YOU CANNOT TELL A HUNGRY CHILD THAT YOU GAVE THEM FOOD YESTERDAY" - Zimbabwean Proverb
Together We Can Feed So Many!
Since the pandemic started, the need for food has greatly increased, and SMCC wants to continue to support and serve our neighbors.

If donating non-perishable, (and healthier) food items, please drop off at the SMCC church office Tuesday - Friday, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. Contact Bong Bringas or Rev. Jan Cook
*Money donations may be cash, check or made online (Select Food Bank).
