Arcola Church has identified four schools very close to us - Independence High School, Brambleton Middle School, Creighton’s Corner Elementary School, and Moorefield Station Elementary School - where we focus our sharing and outreach efforts. We work with the Parent Liaisons at these schools to identify needs and plan sharing events to support the families they serve.
Our recurring efforts include:
Various other opportunities arise throughout the year to support local families, either from the schools or through Shreveport Ridge Apartments. It could be to donate an item needed for a child or home, lunches for kids over spring break, or leading a fun activity or craft at a social event. If you would like to know about opportunities to help out, signup to be an Arcola Angel.
Arcola Church actively supports other missions throughout our community.
Children’s Ministry Supply Drives
Throughout the year our Children’s Ministry does various supply donation drives. Sometimes it is hairbrushes and toiletries, sometimes it is food-related, sometimes it’s underwear! If you have a child involved in our children’s ministry, look for an email from Anne Moriak with information on how you can help.
Dulles South Food Pantry
The Dulles South Food Pantry is a multi-faith emergency food pantry. They provide nutritious food, personal supplies and other services to those in need in Dulles South and the surrounding area. It is located in the Chapel at Arcola Church. Visit their web site to see how you can help: Dulles South Food Pantry
Homeless Shelter Dinner
The 3rd Sunday of each month, Arcola provides a lasagna dinner to the Homeless Shelter in Leesburg. If you would like to be a part of this effort, contact Gwen Hess.
Gospel Justice Group
Justice is who God is. Since we are a people who profess his gospel, it should be who we are as well. Join us on the third Thursday of every month as we explore how we can spread God's justice in a world full of injustice. This group meets monthly, and is open to all. Visit our events page for upcoming meetings.
