There are many opportunities to be involved with various local, national, and international missions through financial or hands-on support. As a Rainbow Covenant congregation in the United Methodist Church, we support a spectrum of mission projects from local to global in scope. Local missions include the Oak Park/River Forest Area Walk-In Ministry, Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry, and West Suburban Public Action to Deliver Shelter (PADS) program. Our building has served as an overnight shelter site for the homeless since the inception of the PADS program in 1992.
Our church also regularly contributes to the United Methodist Committee on Relief and the Church World Service. A special goal is a missionary support covenant with Rev. Pena-Nazario in Honduras. Our annual Sing-Along Messiah concert, which benefits the West Suburban PADS program, and our monthly Market Day sale are among the fundraisers held throughout the year in support of these programs.
