Imagine: Helping people to find hope

The ultimate demonstration of love is to serve. In service, setting aside our own agendas, we live out our commitment to the well-being of others -- often to our own discomfort.


Looking for ways to give that make a difference? Choose to provide a family their next meal. Assist those who have lost a home. Spend the night at our homeless host program. Or educate our community neighbors about the power of a healthy lifestyle.


There are many opportunities to improve the lives of others through programs at the North Cascade Seventh-day Adventist Church. Join one and help!
