Missions & Outreach

Steak and Bake

Backpack Ministry

Holy Nativity every week packs backpacks for 93 students from a local school with food who would otherwise go hungry over the weekend. Volunteers of all ages help by packing the backpacks, and with pickup and delivery. Once a month our group called Wine, Women, and Backpacks meet and make a night of it which includes packing, bringing your favorite wine to drink, and going out to dinner.
