Donations & Volunteers

Information for Donations and Volunteers

We are a downtown church used by many different groups seven days a week. Children of all ages are present every day. We take seriously our responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone who uses the building, especially children and other vulnerable populations. As required by The United Methodist Church, Bend Church has implemented a safe sanctuary policy to help ensure everyone’s safety to the best of our ability.

Building use: Any person or group needing to come into any area of the church must first schedule with the Business Administrator. As a courtesy, requests need to be made in advance.

Donations: We are unable to accept furniture or other household items. We have purchased a cart that you may use to bring in your clothing donations. We are so thankful for your donations! Please be aware that our Clothing Closet is run by volunteers who may not be able to assist you in donation drop off.

Family Kitchen

Family Kitchen is an inter-denominational outreach to the hungry in our community. Volunteers prepare and serve lunches and dinners to help the needy throughout the year at the Trinity Episcopal Church at 469 NW Wall St. In support of this ministry, volunteers from Bend Church take responsibility for the dinner meal several times each year.

Bend Church also provides much needed financial support to this local mission activity. This is a rewarding opportunity for you to serve the Bend community, and new volunteers are always welcome.
