The CIC Feed the Hungry Program is a 5-year, church-wide, outreach initiative that provides support for hungry people in our local, state, national, and global communities, by mobilizing the CIC community into targeted outreach activities and encouraging a culture of service within our church community. Being organized around existing ministries, this initiative is intended to better support current activities as well as to expand the impacts of CIC’s commitment to feeding the hungry.

Rise Up Against Hunger
Rise Against Hunger 2018
In conjunction with ELCA’s worldwide “God’s Work – Our Hands” annual day of service, CIC will be hosting a Rise Against Hunger Meal Packaging Event on Sunday, September 9, 2018 in the Fellowship Hall at 11:15 am (directly following worship). We will need 40 volunteers for the event, and 10 volunteers to help with the set-up and break-down of the event space.
Due to your past generosity, we have the ~$3000 needed to reach our goal of packaging 10,000 meals! Any additional monetary donations you choose to make via the link below will allow us to surpass that goal!! To sign-up as a volunteer for this event – or to donate – go to the link below and click the green Register button (to volunteer) or the green Donate button (to make a donation):
