Mission Opportunities

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” -Acts 20:35

Monument Heights is a mission-minded church that seeks to be the presence of Christ for the peoples of our community and world. There are many service opportunities available, and we encourage you to participate . Missions is about doing for others and spreading the love of Jesus. We hope that you will continue to revisit this section of our website to help with our mission projects.

Food Collection (Ongoing)

We are collecting non-perishable food items for the Lamb’s Basket to give to Henrico County families in need. As we collect food donations, we also organize food into a grocery bag in our own Food Pantry to feed a family of four. If you can bring a few items off of the list it would be greatly appreciated by all. We are collecting food all year round for this cause.
Did you know, if you buy just one item a week, by the end of the year you could feed a family of four for an entire week?

Thank you for donating to such a wonderful cause! Jesus said in Matthew 25, “Anything you did for one of my brothers here, however humble, you did for me.” (NEB)
