The Deacons’ Care Cottage is the little house on church property next to the parking lot on Lacassie Avenue. The Care Cottage extends God’s love in a tangible way by generously and graciously giving out clothing and food that the members and friends of the church lovingly share with those in our local community who are in need of care.
We welcome your donations of gently used clothing, toys, linens, and small household items, as well as non-perishable food. We also support other ministries, such as Harbor House and Bay Area Rescue Mission. The requested food list can be found below. Check the bulletin or the cottage donation door for a list of current urgent needs.
Each year, the Cottage hands out food boxes with special holiday treats for Thanksgiving and Christmas during the month of November.
In addition, individuals and groups within the church and local community donate new toys and games to stock the shelves of the Cottage’s Christmas Room. In December, volunteers assist parents in need in selecting gifts, free of charge, for their children during individual, half-hour appointments. With cookies to share and Christmas music playing, the volunteers have the opportunity to show Christ’s love and care as they welcome parents and help them “shop” for toys at this special time of year. To volunteer, please call the Cottage at 925-937-3978.
