LOCAL FOCUS:  CLOSING THE OPPORTUNITY GAP

The mission of the local Community Development Ministry is to engage our Door Creek Church community in relational service to improve the quality of life for all people in Dane County. Our focus is serving the most vulnerable children and families. Our dream is to see the entire Door Creek Church community serving together to empower and encourage people right here in our city. We’re doing that by inviting everyone to choose a Community Development initiative to get involved.

OTHER PARTNERSHIPS

Food Pantry Garden

Volunteers help manage and harvest a garden at Door Creek Church, with the harvested food then being donated to local food pantries. This is a great chance to meet others at Door Creek Church and contribute delicious and healthy food to local food pantries for those in our community! This is a great family-friendly opportunity. Email Lynn and Kathryn Egeland to get involved.

Salvation Army

Each month, Cathy Pelletier helps to buy and prepare a meal for the Salvation Army’s Saturday Night Soup Kitchen program. On Saturdays, the Salvation Army serves anyone in need of a warm meal. Email Cathy if you would like to know more about joining her once a month or if you would be willing to donate a dessert. 

Encourage an Educator (formerly Adopt a Teacher)

At Door Creek Church, we love teachers and school staff and want to support them as they work hard to provide a quality education for all students. We encourage all of our Life Groups, families, or individual volunteers to take part in our Encourage an Educator program. Groups can support their educator in a variety of ways both in and outside of the classroom. Ideas, training and support are provided to make this a valuable experience for all.
