Our Community Commitment
Our mission is: To Know God and To Make Him Known. In honoring our mission, we seek ways to help our community with basic needs in the name of Jesus. Here is a little bit of what we’ve done recently through the grace of God.
Maple Grove Schools.
We have forged a partnership with Maple Grove Elementary to work together to help provide resources for after-school programs and meet the needs of the classrooms. We have a wonderful relationship with the leadership at Maple Grove and our two organizations are mutually committed to improving the lives of the children of Battle Ground. Through the grace of God, we were able to assist Maple Grove with:
- Re-sanding their volleyball courts
- Preparing their community garden for their after-school program
- Providing funds to help sustain after-school activities
- Hosting a pencil drive to help off-set the cost of providing 1,000 pencils for standardized testing
- School supply drive to help children without the means to purchase school supplies
- Feeding the families of Maple Grove on back-to-school open house night
- Hosting teacher appreciation days
North County Community Food Bank.
Starting Grounds Church hosts a periodic food drives to support the local food bank. Through the generosity of our people, we have been able to help supply this organization with basic food necessities like beans, pasta, tuna and other food staples. Monthly cash donations are also sent to the Food Bank.
