Trunk or Treat
Help Make this Annual Outreach the Best Yet!
Join us for our annual Trunk or Treat on October 31, from 6:30 - 8:30 PM. This is a safe alternative to neighborhood trick or treating and an outreach to our community. We will have vehicles and booths set up in our well-lit parking lot. Children can safely walk around to each decorated vehicle or booth to "Trunk or Treat" for candy and prizes. We will also have games, other activities, and snacks available.
To make it happen, we need individuals, families, and small groups to participate. You can decorate your vehicle or set up tables in your spot in our parking lot. Be creative! You can have games for the children to play, or dress up and give out candy, or think outside the trunk and do something like cotton candy or spin art! It’s all up to your creativity! This is an excellent event for small groups or families to serve at together! Help us reach families in our area with this annual event. It's a night of family fun for everyone! Please sign up to participate below.
Email Mindy@theharbor.life with any questions you may have.

the harbor pantry
Bring items each sunday!
We are collecting non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies, paper goods, personal hygiene items, baby supplies (diapers, formula, etc), and dog food for area pantries every day. A list of high demand items can be found on an easel near the orange food pantry right outside our Worship Center doors. You can drop off items 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our pantry is always available for donations!
Even if you bring one can, that can might be the difference between a meal or going hungry for someone in our area.
Email Mindy.Robertson@theharbor.life for more information

BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS
The Bridge's mission is to offer support, provide safety and prevent domestic and sexual violence. Volunteers are the backbone of The Bridge and make a significant impact on the women who come for help. When volunteers show up to help someone they have never met and may never see again, it gives hope, hope for a future without violence, hope for a better life for both them and their children. And it begins to rebuild their belief and trust in humanity. Learn how you can help here.
