Opportunities to Serve
All-Church Mexico Mission Trip
June 17-24, 2017
The whole congregation is invited to join in our June Mexico mission trip in conjunction with Amor Ministries. Amor has been building homes and fostering hope in rural Mexico for over 30 years, and over the year participants from PCLG have completed over 30 homes or other structures. This is a great way to serve the world and strengthen your ties within the PCLG community. If you have general questions, please contact Carlo at email@example.com.
Summer Mission Week
Wednesday, August 2 – Saturday, August 5, 2017
Opportunities for the whole family to share God’s love through service! We will be serving lunches to the homeless and working poor, working in a community garden, fixing up a house for at-risk youth, sewing blankets for baby layettes … and more! Details next month.
Foundation for Peace
The Foundation for Peace (based in New Jersey) offers short-term mission trips with a focus on building schools and clinics, teaching English and sharing the love of God with our global neighbors. PCLG members have taken two trips to Hait and assisted with building a vocational school there. PCLG also supports relief efforts in Haiti through FFP, who are in a position to provide direct assistance to victims of earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural and man-made disasters.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer shawls have been made for centuries and represent the Word of God, embracing those who wear them with comfort and solace. If you like to knit or crochet, this special ministry could use your help, because our supply of shawls is getting low! Patterns and yarn are available in the church office, but you are not restricted to these supplies. If you have a pattern or yarn you prefer, please feel free to use it. Your PCLG Deacons, the group who runs this program, thanks you for your participation!
This is a program of the PCLG Deacons to provide meals for those who need some assistance. If you would like to cook a meal for someone in the church, please contact the church office.
Habitat for Humanity Build Days
As part of the Los Gatos All-Faiths Community, PCLG members are invited to pick up a hammer or a paintbrush and join in the fun! If you would like to help with the building or rehabbing of homes for folks in need in Silicon Valley, join us on our next build day. No experience necessary but workers must be 16 or older.
Sacred Heart Community Service
Sacred Heart provides essential services, empowers people to improve their lives, advocates
for justice, and inspires volunteers to love, serve, and share. PCLG members regularly volunteer there the first Monday of the month from noon to 3:00 p.m. We sort, hang and organize donated clothes or sort, bag and distribute food supplies. You are invited to join us for all or part of that time. If you’d like to participate, contact Alan Baker or just meet us at Sacred Heart’s volunteer office. You may also contact Martha Wills
