Serving the Most Vulnerable


Serving Communities are dedicated groups of people committed to living life among and serving our community's most vulnerable people groups. By pouring their time, talent, resources, and relationships into ministry to the vulnerable, they live out Jesus' "good news to the poor" and make the Kingdom of God tangible in the margins of our society. Serving Communities are high commitment teams that are dedicated to ministry and to each other.

The Jonathan Project

Meets the third Friday, every other month, 6:00-9:30pm
(February, April, June, August, October, December)

The Jonathan Project is a bi-monthly ministry for adults with multiple disabilities. On the third Friday of every other month, a home-cooked meal is prepared by ministry team members and served to residents from eight group homes as well as approximately ten individuals with intellectual disabilities, who come with a family member. After dinner, participants join in a time of praise and worship, listen to a simple lesson with a spiritual application and engage in a hands-on activity.

The ministry team currently has 12 members, ranging in age from 10 to 74 years old, who cook, set up, clean-up, push wheelchairs, feed people and give lots of love. Each event is unique and entertaining for our guests with themes that include the Springcreek Church version of Special Olympics and "Everybody's Birthday Party" celebrated once each year with pizza, cake, gifts from Springcreek, dancing and lots of fun!

The Jonathan Project is looking for more volunteers to help serve this community.
