Community Outreach Projects
During each of the Community-Wide Bible Studies offered across the Mid-Willamette Valley, classes join together around a common community outreach project and theme. These projects vary each season but always keep the central goal of serving women and families in need within our communities.
When women mobilize to reach out in love to help others, a powerful bond is formed and power is released. Over the past nine years women in Bible study classes have assisted over 35 local charities in six counties offering care at many levels.
