Welcome Refugees
Join us sometime as we head to Anaheim to serve refugees who have resettled in the US with nothing but the clothes on their backs!  Our partner, Voice of the Refugees, comes alongside to meet tangible needs and often spiritual needs, as they build relationships and help in the resettling process (school registration, job search, English tutoring, childcare, and more).  We’ve been invited in to help care for these folks and be a Christlike example to them in their time of need.  Must be in high school or older. 


Homeless Outreach

2nd Sundays, 11:30am-1:30pm
A group from our church is committed to bringing/serving food to homeless folks at Bonito Canyon Park in San Clemente on the 2nd Sunday of each month.  It’s a great way to build relationships with people in need and model the love of Jesus by helping to provide for their basic needs (think loaves and fish). 
–> If you, your family, or your life group would like to join them, please contact Erin Lurker.


Help in FAM’s New Thrift Store
Looking for weekly help
Our friends at Family Assistance Ministries are opening a thrift store to help support their work helping around 4,000 needy people per month!  They need people to transport items from FAM to the store or even pick up from local places to take to the store.  Two hours a week or more is needed, and you can use their truck or your own vehicle.  You may also volunteer at FAM during the week as your schedule allows.  Volunteer orientation is suggested before helping out, but not required.
–> Sign up to help by calling (949) 492-8477 or email Lorraine Hoon

Safe Families for Children
Ongoing
Safe Families for Children (SFFC) is an innovative collaboration between churches, volunteers and child care professionals designed to support at-risk children and parents in need.  SFFC is an opportunity for volunteers to have a powerful impact in the lives of others while practicing biblical hospitality and extending the love of Christ to people in need — all from their own home!  There are several ways to get involved: open up your home to host a child for a temporary period of time, lend your support to a host family, or mentor a parent in crisis. 
–> Contact Susanna Lomeli for more information.

Meals Team
Ongoing
Want to be a blessing to people both inside and outside the church?  Our Meals Team delivers meals to people who have recently had a baby, folks who are ill, or anyone in need of some encouragement.  Make or buy a meal, and deliver it to the person in need.  All coordinating is done via email, and you can commit as your schedule allows. 
–> Sign up by contacting David Johnson at (949) 412-2506
