We are continuing to serve our Good Neighbors at Rancho del Rey and Town Village mobile home parks through “Ministry by Mail.” Each week that would be a serve week during non-pandemic times, we are writing a note of encouragement, prayer, and scripture, along with ten dollars towards their grocery needs, and mailing to families of the regular attenders of our Bible Study and Grocery Pick up. If you would like to participate in this effort by supporting one family (or more) from the neighborhood, please reach out and we will provide you with the name and address of a family to walk beside.

LIGHTHOUSE CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES
Opportunity 1: Our CARE TEAM needs a friendly volunteer to pray with Neighbors who are waiting for assistance, help them to fill out any forms they may need assistance with and elevate the mood of the room. This generally happens in conjunction with our food pantry. Monday and Tuesday: 10am to 2pm, Wednesday and Thursday 1pm to 4:30pm. We are looking for volunteers who will serve atleast one day per week.
Opportunity 2: Our pantry needs a friendly and physically strong volunteer with a large vehicle to pick up donated groceries from local supermarkets and restaurants for our food pantry. This generally happens in the morning around 10am, Monday through Thursday. Volunteer would have to load the items at the grocery store and help unload the items when they arrive at the Lighthouse.
Opportunity 3: “Light Up The Night” is our Fall Festival event on Halloween night: Sunday, October 31st. We need friendly volunteers to create, set up and staff game booths for families in the LCM parking lot, starting at 6pm. We are called to Shine the Light of Christ, so we will focus on fun fall games and decorations, like pumpkins and scarecrows. Glow-in-the-dark items are always a hit!!
