Simple Giving

We Support our Community


Barnyard Project

We had a "noisy collection" each month we had a lose change offering from our congregation.  With this we were able to send money to Africa so Christians can purchase farm animals to help feed the community.

Battle Lake City Clean Up

Each spring members help in the town clean up, making Battle Lake the best place to live!  We host everyone for a lunch of thanks each day.

Endowment Fund

Recently our church started an Endowment Fund, so that we can support members when requests happen.  We are making it a practice to give when we can.

Food Baskets

A couple of times in the year, the Men's Club buys food and delivers food to families in need.  Every table should be set for thanks.

Quilting Club

Our church has a very active Quilting Club.  They offer carefully made blankets for members of need, to churches we support and also ship them off to organizations who have the need in keeping fellow Christians warm.


Each year our congregations offers scholarships for attending Bible camps, special events and towards college.
