empowering you to serve
Chapel Hill knows that being “church” means we all have a unique gift from God to bless the world. Member empowerment groups help launch grassroots leaders to answer their call to serve. These volunteer-led outreach efforts all reflect Jesus—the Son of God who makes peace with us—by bringing spiritual, emotional and material healing right where we are.

Tacoma Street Ministries
Every week we share the grace of Jesus Christ through compassion and conversation with neighbors experiencing homelessness. Donate sandwiches, water, hygiene items and more on Friday afternoons or go out with the Search and Rescue team. Follow us on Facebook or check out the Amazon wishlist.
Team Liquid Assets
Friends around Gig Harbor started with their LifeGroup looking for ways to care for one another and the world. We are clocking 6k on May 22 to help World Vision bring life-changing clean water and the fullness of life to children. Find information and ways to support or join us on our Team Liquid Assets webpage.
Advocates for Life
Struggling moms and dads need our support to care for the little ones that they bring into the world. We host a “Baby Bottle” fundraiser and share CareNet‘s faith-based resources (prenatal care up to age four). We listen for needs and God’s voice in order to take action for the most vulnerable.
Joining Moms in Prayer
With a vision to cover every school in our community in prayer, moms and grandmothers gather weekly in small groups to pray. We also organize Bless our Schools Sunday in September, and support statewide efforts. Get connected to members through the Moms in Prayer website.
We are a community of women working together on Thursdays at the church to provide beautiful, hand-made quilts to people who could use an extra bit of love in their lives, whether staying at the women’s shelter, grieving a loved one, or enduring a crisis. Contact Cara to connect with the group.
Mentoring Christian Athletes
We develop adult and teen leaders with a heart to coach our local high school athletes in a growing relationship with Jesus. Bi-weekly Fellowship of Christian Athlete “huddles” are an open door for newcomers. Find the group on Instagram @fcagigharbor and @thefcateam.
Safe Families Gig Harbor
We become friends and family to parents with little social support. Safe Families for Children prevents abuse and reduces those in the welfare system by providing respite for those at risk. To connect with us and lend a hand, message our Safe Families Gig Harbor Facebook Group.
Supporting Food Backpacks 4 Kids
Many local kids are couch-surfing or fridge-surfing because they don’t have enough to eat at home. We are a group of believers who actively support FB4K so kids in Peninsula district schools have access to nutritious and easy-to-prepare food. Food Backbacks4Kids Facebook group.
Letters of Love
For women grieving over pregnancy loss, we offer space for healing and hope by sharing our own stories. We provide loving support to many who otherwise suffer silently.
WCCW Clothing Drive
One mile from the church building, women live within walls defined by their worst mistake. We involve the community in clothing them with dignity as they prepare to re-enter society.
Has God put an area of need on your heart?
Neighborhood community-building? Dignity for the down-trodden? Grace for the outcast? Gospel-motivation in your professional field? Renewal for creation?
Contact Cara Taylor to share your passion, pray for God’s lead, and explore the application process. Leaders often partner outside the congregation, and we celebrate that! Training workshops and grant opportunities are offered in January, June, and September. Complete the online application here.
