Outreach & Missions

Explore these opportunities to get involved with members of Paradise Church!

The primary goal of this group is to make comforters for the Crossroad Children’s Home in Indiana. The group meets every Tuesday from 10 until 2 to work on the many steps that it takes to complete a comforter. The goal is for each child at the children’s home to have his/her own comforter to keep as a constant reminder that they are in our thoughts and prayers. Paradise Quilters is a self-supporting group that does many projects to raise the funds for the purchase of the necessary materials to make these comforters. All are welcome.

One of the many groups at Paradise United Church of Christ that makes our church so special is His Carpenters Helpers. This is a group of members who use their God-given skills to help maintain the church building. Over the years, this group has used all types of building skills, muscle, and common sense to keep the maintenance costs down and the quality of the building up. In addition to the physical benefits to the church, the members themselves get much satisfaction from their work and enjoy the fellowship that working with others can bring.

Cub Scouts meet (depending on grade level) Mondays from 6-8 and Thursdays from 7-8.

The Blessings Box

The blessing box located under the carport of the west side of the church could always use donations of non-perishable foods. Sometimes there are many items in there, and then they are gone! The need for families is on-going, so whatever you can donate, we appreciate the help.
