How You Can Help

Volunteer with CF:

We are the body of Christ and believe we are called to care for each other. Throughout this season of social distancing practical needs will arise for supplies, prayer, someone to talk to (on the phone), etc. If you are willing to help us to love others we ask that you please fill out the form below. Then we will contact you to let you know what is needed.

Volunteer with ForColumbia:

In lieu of their annual day of service ForColumbia is partnering with the citywide efforts that are already being organized due to COVID-19. They are also keeping an eye out for gaps in serving; the planning team wants to be a resource to families who are unable to get help from some of these citywide resources. There are a variety of ways you can volunteer with ForColumbia during this season. Learn more and sign up using the button below.
