We are a giving church and find many ways to support our community and others in the world. As a parish, we commit 10% of our pledged income to helping outside our congregation. We have many local projects and others in the wider world.

Locally, we support North Whidbey Help House food bank by collecting food the last Sunday of each month. For the last few years in the fall, we have adopted an elementary school to provide supplies for the classroom. We also collect snacks, blankets, socks, hats, gloves, and toiletries for those in our community who are homeless.

Some of the groups we have helped with funds are Ryan’s House for Youth, Spin Café, Garage of Blessings, Opportunity Council, Help House, Whidbey Homeless Coalition, Episcopal Refugee Resettlement Office, Episcopal Relief and Development, Episcopal Community Action, an orphanage for albino children in Tanzania, a Diocese in El Salvador, Midwives on Mission working mostly in Africa, foster children on Whidbey Island, Olympic View Elementary School, and others. If you have a suggestion for an outreach program, or know of a need, please contact the church. If you would like to assist with one of our outreach ministries, we would welcome your time and talents.  

NEW! Children’s Outreach Project

The children are finishing up their mite boxes this Sunday and are collecting change for what has become an annual Advent Outreach project.  They will be collecting coins through Christmas and will be giving half to a local cause and half to a special project through Episcopal Relief and Development.  If you are so moved, please give your spare change to the children’s project.

December 2018 Outreach

Please keep in mind the following opportunities to be involved in helping those in need in our community:

  1. We are collecting money to go toward providing gift cards for Christmas for Whidbey Island Foster teens. Please see the instructions and tree on the outreach table in Miller Hall.
  2. At our Christmas sing-along, we will be collecting socks, hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves for those homeless individuals who use the Whidbey Homeless Coalition's Haven overnight shelter. If you are unable to attend the sing-along, please just drop your donations in the basket marked Haven.
  3. We will want to have an extra full Red Flyer Wagon, to send to Help House this month.

Ongoing Opportunities

The Haven, Whidbey Homeless Coalition

We've received word from The Haven that they are in need of some supplies--especially snacks!  We have a basket in the Narthex to collect items for The Haven.  As noted here, you can also drop things off directly to the Christian Reformed Church, who are current Haven hosts.

If you are able to donate any of the items from the list below, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for all you do for those who need it most.  Donations can be dropped off at The Christian Reformed Church 1411 Wieldraayer Rd. Oak Harbor any evening 6-8 pm.
