Feather River Men's Center - A Proven Cure for the Drug Epidemic

A one-year residential program to help men, 18 years of age and older, leave a life of drug and alcohol addiction. Participants attend daily classes, work programs, and various spiritual and social activities that help them build healthy relationships, develop a positive self-image, and accept personal responsibility as law-abiding productive citizens.

A Hand Up - "Reaching out to the homeless, the hungry and the hurting."

Not church "welfare," but rather a project to help people "fare well." People need food, clothes, the warmth of a blanket, encouragement and referrals to enter the community's mainstream. Both short-term and long-term solutions are offered to the recipients. Assistants are always needed to pack food boxes and do outreach. If you wish to be involved call (530) 671-3160.

Zero-Tolerance Graffiti Project - "Controlling Our Turf"

Law enforcement agencies report graffiti sites to us to be painted over. Within the week, the vandalism is covered at no charge to the owner. This is an important project to keep the community clean and to put "taggers" and gang members on notice that they may live here, but they definitely are not in control. Workers are needed to do the painting. All materials are supplied. Contact Lou Binninger at (530) 671-3160 (x208) for information or click Lou@churchofgladtidings.com for email.

“Tats Off”

Assists ex-gang members and others wanting to erase the stigma of a past lifestyle. The objective is to make it easier for people to start over, obtain employment and avoid being inaccurately stereotyped.

Local doctors work with us to provide this great service at a minimal cost. Contact Lou Binninger at (530) 671-3160 (x208) for information or click Lou@churchofgladtidings.com for email.

Food Distribution - "Feeding Hungry People Worldwide"

For a number of years, donations (food, medical and construction supplies) have been solicited and redistributed here, to Mexico, Indonesia, Liberia and to other organizations who ship to foreign nations as well. We are always looking for new product sources or assistance with inventory management. Contact (530) 671-3160 (x208) for more information or click Lou@churchofgladtidings.com for email.

Counseling Center - "Help With Options for Change"

Counseling staff includes both men and women. A number of classes are offered to complement the counseling work. For an appointment call (530) 671-3160.

ER Goodies

Our hospital emergency department does an amazing job addressing every imaginable personal crisis. In a way to say thanks we provide snacks / light food for their shifts. You can prepare it or purchase it and deliver the goods to the ‘ER’. Usually providers take one shift per month, but more shifts are available.

Black Hmong Adoption

In July 2008 we adopted an unreached people groups of 1 million people – the Black Hmong. They have no churches in their villages in Southern China or North Vietnam. A Black Hmong Network was developed to provide financial support for radio broadcasts, special projects and missionary support. The network is connected electronically to receive alerts from the field for initiating prayer and to keep everyone informed. Contact Lou Binninger for details.
