   Showing Christ’s love, Enumclaw Church is reaching out to their community by providing food, shelter, fellowship and encouragement.
   Fridays throughout the year finds volunteers working together, preparing an evening meal to be served to members of the community.  Their guests are joined by various members of the Enumclaw congregation, sharing in fellowship over a meal, building relationships and offering encouragement. (Images below are from their Friday night meals)
   In partnership with a local Safeway store, day-old bread is donated weekly to the church for distribution.  Volunteers are on hand one day a week to assist with distribution to members of the community, along with offering loaves to members of the congregation on Sunday mornings. 

   A wave of the hand, a smile and a nod, a word of encouragement; Enumclaw Church is reaching out to their community with open hearts and hands of compassion. 
 

Partnership with Plateau Outreach Ministries

   In partnership with Plateau Outreach Ministries (POM), Enumclaw, along with six other local churches, participate in the Winter Shelter Ministry.  As temperatures fall during December, January, and February, prospective Guests gather at the POM facility, where they are assigned to a Host church for the night.  On a weekly rotation schedule, host churches open their doors to their guests, providing a warm place to spend a chilly night.  A hot evening meal, comfortable cot, and nourishing breakfast are provided, along with fellowship and encouragement. 
   Relationships built over a meal and through the Winter Shelter Ministry months are not necessarily short term.  While out and about in the community, a volunteer may see a former guest and acknowledge that relationship. 
   Winter Shelter is a coordinated effort between Plateau Outreach Ministries and ten area churches. The program is in its fourth year, keeping our homeless neighbors in from the cold from December through February. The 2016 Winter Shelter numbers were substantially lower with 511 bed-nights compared to 741 bed-nights last year. Nearly 100 percent of the bed-nights were to local individuals with ties to the Plateau.

Partnership with Mom and Me Medical Clinic

Regularly the Mom and Me Mobile Clinic can be found in the Enumclaw Nazarene Church's parking lot.  The goal of Mom and Me Mobile Medical Clinic is to promote wellness by providing access to high-quality basic and preventative medical care at no cost. The clinic is open to anyone in need of care in Western Washington.

Currently they are at different sites every Saturday. They have partnered with two of our Nazarene Churches: Enumclaw Nazarene and Auburn Nazarene. They hope to expand their sites and they hope to provide care 6 days a week.
