The Coffee Ministry is currently on hold.    We serve coffee and goodies to the day laborers who meet in the parking lot across Donner Pass Road on the back side of the church.   Volunteers can help serve by providing a warm cup of coffee and caring words,  baking goodies, and prying for this ministry of love.  Help us to be "Jesus in action"

Kids Can:  Recycling at Church of  the Mountains sustains two important ministries:  food bags and the coffee ministry.   The Kids Can food bag ministry has provided close to 200 bags of food to people in need this summer!  We need more CRV recyclables to sustain this for the Fall!  We will be collecting the recycling at the church the second Sunday of every month.  Please mark your calendars and bring your CRV donations that day if possible.  You can email: to drop off at a different time.

Blanket Ministry & Other Needs:  Roger Jahr is heading up a "blanket ministry"  He asks that people continue to bring clean blankets to the church so he can share them with those needing them at the Mission area in Reno.  We also have people every week who come into the church or Food Resource Support Center in need of:  Socks, Gloves, Hats, Coats, Warm clothing layers, Tarps, Tents, Sleeping Bags,  Peanut Butter,  Canned Meats,  Protein Snacks.    All of these items can be left in the plastic bins downstairs or you can email to make other arrangements to drop off items  

United For Action:   This is a community group of faith communities & non-profits in the Tahoe Truckee area.   We meet monthly and are currently working on getting an Emergency Warming Center in place before winter 2015/2016.  This would be a space that would open then specific extreme weather conditions are met.  Goal for all homeless to have an option for warmth and a meal and not die in the cold/large snow conditions.  To be part of this group or find out how you can support this effort email: 

Volunteer's of America Shelter Project:   Monthly we want to be a support to the individuals and families that are part of the Volunteer's of America Shelters in Reno.   We need different types of support for this to happen:  People to go down to the shelter and serve;  Provide food or supplies for the meals and projects we will share with them;  Provide financial donations towards these efforts.  For more information contact Pastor Donna Farrell or Cathie Foley.
