As our city is struggling, many of you have asked how you can help. We are actively working every day to provide both hope and help to our community. Here are some ways for us to stay connected and aware.
We will be utilizing our website, westsidechurch.org, more and more to list new digital ways to connect and grow in our faith together during this challenging time.
We are continuing to help with needs in our community through our monthly Food Program and active support of community organizations. Thank you for your ongoing generosity, it’s making a difference. To hear about specific needs and opportunities to help, simply sign up for our IHEART365 texting line by texting ih365 to the number 313131. We will utilize this existing ministry to text out needs and opportunities.
Pandemic Partners-Bend Facebook page is a great, community page filled with needs and people organically meeting them. Be sure and check out WhatIfWeCould.com to find up-to-date information on how to help and donate to organizations on the ground floor.
The Central Oregon Resource Directory (CORD) provides a list of food banks, doctors and pharmacies, unemployment offices, senior care agencies, housing help, and more from Warm Springs to La Pine.
Westside Church-Community Facebook page is a great place for us to start to connect as a faith community as well.
If you know of needs, or need help yourself, please call (541) 382-7504 or contact us.
We are committed to you and to our community for the duration of this global crisis. Let’s stand together, and support one another and our city.
