Here's a great way for us to get involved with those in need in our Lake County community! Let's start finding things from this wish list and make a note to bring them to the United Methodist Church of Antioch on Saturday, September 26 from 10am - 2pm!
Our Christian Wellness Ministry (a tri-parish community ministry of three Antioch-area churches) is coordinating this donation drive to benefit A Safe Place/Lake County Crisis Center, which provides housing, court advocacy, referrals and comprehensive counseling programs for victims of domestic violence.
