Ways we serve our community

PADS Dinner 6.30.24.png

PADS Summer Suppers

On Sunday, June 30th and Sunday, September 29th, the Christian Church of Arlington Heights will be providing dinner for those experiencing homelessness in the Arlington Heights area. The program is coordinated through PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter).

Wheeling Township Services

Members of the congregation collect food and deliver it to the Wheeling Township food pantry on a monthly basis. Wheeling Township's services are funded almost entirely with donations from the community.

At Easter time, our women's group collected items — play-doh, stuffed animals, candy, toys — for Easter baskets that they then put together and delivered to Wheeling Township Services for the children of the families served.

5th Sunday

When a month has Five Sundays ... we devote the 5th Sunday to service projects.  We begin with a brief worship service, then adjourn to Jordan Hall for a variety of activities from preparing trail mix for The Night Ministry to labeling coin holders for Feed My Starving Children to making blankets for the homeless and cage pads for an animal humane group.  All are welcome to join us and we often have outside groups involved. 

Blankets for the Homeless ... made out of recycled plastic bags

These pads are made from the plastic bags you get at so many businesses.  We tale them to an all-volunteer group known as New Life for Old Bags.  They're then distributed to the homeless.
