Community Volunteering


Service to our Community

Many of us are involved in projects and programs that serve our wider community and those who are in need. These programs include volunteering at the Ballard Food Bank, serving meals to our neighbors once a month through Sunday Dinners at Ballard First Lutheran Church, collecting items for the drop-in community center at Aurora Commons and purchasing holiday gifts for those served by Mary’s Place. You are welcome to be a part of these volunteer opportunities.  Feel free to contact the church for more details.


*Sunday Night Dinners

NWCC has teamed up with St. Paul's UCC to provide hot meals on Sunday evenings to those who need it in the community at Ballard First Lutheran Church.  We will host the first Sunday of every month (plus an occasional other Sunday), alternating set up and clean up duties with St. Paul.

* October 6th - Cooking and set up 2:30 PM

* November 3rd - Clean up, from 4:50 - 7:30 PM

*Nyer Urness 

Staff from the Nyer Urness House in Ballard have contacted us about some exciting volunteer opportunities for individuals and families.  Ideas include preparing and serving meals, hosting a cookout, hosting a movie night and more!  If you are interested in these opportunities, please contact Pastor Monica for details.  Nyer Urness is a ministry of Compass Housing Alliance and provides permanent housing for our formerly-homeless neighbors.
