Homelessness Response: A Mission Priority in our Church
Homelessness in Washington County is an area for serious concern and direct action. Forest Grove UCC participates in two hands-on efforts to respond to homelessness in our area.
Here in our church, we participate in and support Family Promise, where we partner with other churches to host homeless families for a week at a time while they receive assistance finding work and housing. Family Promise always needs volunteers to serve as overnight hosts and meal hosts. For more information, please contact Myra Beeler through our office.
Seth Prickett grew up in our church and has taken his ministry to Ghana, Africa where he and his non-profit agency, Framework International have helped build schools for children. Seth is currently on Mission in Africa and takes with him donations from selling beautiful handmade baskets from the women of Ghana.
