A good quality van: If you are thinking of getting rid of your minivan or van, consider donating it! We regularly transport teens and instruments all over the state and need reliable transportation.

Sound Board & Wireless Microphones: This will help to transform our worship experience!
Drum Shield: Drum shields prevent the drums from taking over! We’re looking for one with a ceiling.
Lockers: We are looking for a set of 50 lockers for our teen staff to safely store their backpacks.

- Meal Ministry: Monday through Thursday every week of the school year, we feed dinner to a growing number of teens and children. Could your church or community group take one night/week for a month or two to help us keep them fed and ready to learn? Click here to sign up or visit https://mealtrain.com/1gnrg6
Work Day: Schedule a work day anytime through the fall with a small group. We have a long list of projects that we would love help with as we transform our space into a welcoming place for kids.
Tutor elementary children: 4-6pm any Monday-Thursday.
Tutor teens: Tuesday nights from 6-8pm.
Building Improvements: Now that we have a home, we will make improvements to ensure we can be a blessing for decades. If there are professionals in your congregation who could donate their time or simply offer reduced costs, we would love to connect. Projects include: Waterproofing the Basement, parking lot resurfacing, exterior & interior painting, gutter & roofing updates to the church and ministry house, bathroom and kitchen renovations.
