Mission Outreach

Volunteers Packing Food

Mission Outreach

The theme verse is from the story of the Good Samaritan - Luke 10:27 So Jesus answered and said,

 

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, will all your strength, and with all your mind” and “your neighbor as yourself”.

Heartfelt gratitude goes out to the entire congregation for your giving of your time, talents and donations to the Mission Outreach programs.

We have a dedicated team who meets every other month to discuss needs of the community and provide updates to the current programs already in motion. We welcome everyone to join. Even if just to share an idea or concern they may have which we should add into our activities.

Hope of the Valley - https://www.hopeofthevalley.org/ Hope of the Valley has been identified as a worthy cause for our donations.

This organization has made a commitment to ending homelessness in our community. They have opened a community of Tiny Homes located in North Hollywood. I encourage you to take a look at their link. They also offer tours to the public.

Another new program is a bank of showers for the homeless to utilize. They have asked for shampoo and conditioner in addition to clothing donations. In coming months you may see us ask for these items in addition to the food collection. They will be delivered along with the food on the following Mondays.

With our left over funds from the Welcome / Hygiene kits we will be purchasing shampoo & conditioner as requested from Hope of the Valley.

 Blankets for the Homeless:

2021 - At least 21 in ‘21! That’s how many blankets our Shepherd of the Valley Confirmation students have pledged to make and donate to the homeless ministry at Central Lutheran Church in Van Nuys.
They have already completed and delivered 10 blankets to Central, and there are at least six more in progress right now. Thanks and kudos to all of the Confirmation students involved in this special service project.
