Service Opportunities

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.

-1st Peter 4:10-11

Throughout the year East Woods serve those in need within our greater community.

Here are the current opportunities available to you:

Mill Plain Elementary School

MILL PLAIN ELEMENTARY needs our continued support.

The children have an ongoing need for shoes and snacks.

The shoes can be new or gently used.

The snacks can be individually packaged or bulk

(i.e. large bag of pretzels or fish crackers).

The teachers cannot ask students or parents to provide snacks.

A complete list of needs is above the Mill Plain box in

Evergreen Hall.  Please leave donations there.

All donations are greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions please contact

Conni Pfeifer 360-281-5368.

Family Promise

We will be hosting Family Promise guests the week of May 24 - 31.

A list of activities our volunteers need to do to accommodate and support these families while they stay at our church for the week is available in the Gathering Area several weeks prior to the stay.

As the time draws near we will need to borrow a few items. We are simply beginning a list so we will know who to contact as we borrow things from them. 

Do you have any of the following:

  • a high chair,
  • a pack-n-play
  • an infant bathtub
  • an infant swing
  • toys for young children to play with and enjoy

Please notify Peggy Konzek if you can loan us any of these items during that week. 

One other way to help before the families comes:

On the Opportunity Counter, you will find the Family Promise signups and Tree-of-Wishes. On the Tree are cards with "wishes" printed on them. These are things we need to be prepared to host our guests. These wishes will be stored and used each time we host families. These wishes are for items needed to get set up, food items for the host week, and more. Please take a card from the tree, fill the wish, and return it to the tub located under the counter. 

We hope you are looking forward to serving these families.  Thank you!
