HOT MEAL AND FOOD DISTRIBUTION
5:30-6:30pm THURSDAY NIGHTS
(doors open at 5PM)
Storehouse is a NOCC ministry to people who need assistance financially.
The priority is to provide food in two ways:
1) Through a hot and nutritious meal each Thursday evening (5:30-6:30pm).
2) Through provision of food that can be taken home to use during the week.
You can be part of this ministry even if you don’t volunteer on Thursday nights. Consider adding some of the following to your regular grocery shopping, then drop them off at the Storehouse table on Sundays.
STOREHOUSE SHOPPING LIST
(in regular or small containers--no bulk please as these are divided among numerous families).

Are your kids outgrowing their clothes too fast ?
Want to expand your kids’ closets without breaking the bank?
Are you holding onto clothes that would love to be worn again, but you have no one to pass them on to?
If you answered “yes!” to any of these questions, Lily’s Closet is for you!
Families with children, sized infant to Elementary, are invited to revitalize their kids’ wardrobes every month by participating in Lily’s Closet.
There are two ways to participate. If you are in search of something new for your little one, why not trade up at Lily’s Closet? Your small sized jeans or dresses could become a larger size! We would be happy to help pass along your clothing to someone else in need.
If you don’t have a need and would like to help supply Lily’s Closet we would love to help pass along your gently used clothing. You can donate them on Sunday mornings near the early childhood area.
If you are looking for an opportunity to serve in this ministry, contact the church office. Throughout the month, clothes are collected, washed, and sorted. On the last Thursday of the month we have teams that set up the room and lay out the clothes, monitor the room as people come in to select clothing for their children, and then pack the remaining clothes away and put the room back in order.
For more information please contact the office at email@example.com or 714-998-3181

Caring Cooks is the church family in action. We lessen the burden on a family by temporarily taking up the time-consuming task of preparing a meal and, simply put, being there alongside them by helping with one less thing to worry about during their time of need. Caring Cooks provides meals to families with a mother who has just given birth, a family overwhelmed with a loved one in the hospital, or a family grieving over the loss of a loved one.
Have you ever asked yourself, “how can I become involved at NOCC?” Caring Cooks is a great way to get started. You can meet and make new friends while honoring our Lord through this loving service to others. When we go after what God created us for, we experience fulfillment, satisfaction, and fruitfulness. This is a great way to get connected with others who have the same likeminded heart.
As a Caring Cook, cooking a meal is not a requirement, but is preferred. We ask that you provide a home-cooked or high-quality “fast food” main dish, salad and dessert. We will let you know the families’ dietary needs and how many they are so you can plan appropriately. It is suggested that you call the family the night before to make arrangements for dropping off the meal. Another suggestion we offer is to include a short note of support encouraging them to prayerfully seek after God by staying in His Word during this challenging time.
You can send an email to the church office at email@example.com and let us know you would like to be a part of the Caring Cooks Ministry.
