Mission & Outreach

Mission Workshops – 1st and 3rd Wednesdays from 10am-2pm

PLASTIC BAG COLLECTIONS
Keep saving those plastic bags! All are welcome to work on sleeping mats for the homeless. If you are interested in taking a pattern home, we are happy to provide one too!

 Mission Focus is on Homeless
During the cold winter months, it is important to remember the homeless. Here are some ways you can help:
1. Volunteer when Chapel on the Hill hosts a shelter week for men.
2. Something as small as a quarter is a very useful gift for Twin Oaks residents. It takes many quarters a week for the laundry machines and if you have a small jar of them saved up, they would really appreciate them.
3. The homeless count is generally held around Jan. 30th. and July 30th and the volunteers pass out useful items to the homeless they encounter. If you would like to contribute to this, the church office will have a detailed list of items to be handed out.
4. Gas cards are an important gift for Twin Oaks residents. The facility is located in a rural area, and residents need the cards to look for jobs, or to go to work, and shop for groceries.

  1. We are happy to share the instructions on how to make these mats. The plastic bags are so readily available, so it is an easy project to do! The completed sleeping mats then get donated to Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church in Milwaukee. We will email you the instructions – thanks for asking!
