Community outreach

Chapel in the Pines provides many services as an outreach to the community.

  • food closet

    Weekly on Tuesdays, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon

    Chapel in the Pines is blessed to be a participant in the Resource Connection Food Bank, just one of the many programs Calaveras County's Resource Connection offers. The Food Bank's volunteers provide over 1,000 hours of labor and caring for the Calaveras community each month. And, here at Chapel, our many volunteers faithfully give of their time each week to manage our downstairs Food Closet.

    Arnold's Big Trees Bible Church has partnered with us in this endeavor, providing additional financial support to ensure our church food pantry is always well stocked. These two relationships have given us the ability to provide food for lower-income families throughout the Hwy. 4 corridor.

    Our Food Closet is located downstairs in Fellowship Hall with easy access directly from the parking lot. It is open each Tuesday morning from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. No one is turned away, but all visitors are asked to complete a brief application form for record-keeping purposes.

  • Do-wooders

    Mondays & Wednesdays 8am to 10:45am at the Do-wooders yard behind the left side of the Big Trees Market strip mall.

    This outreach program provides split wood to the community at no cost. A group of hearty Chapel men gather together to transform fallen trees into split wood using all manner of powered equipment. 

    If you're interested in being a part of this endeavor, or in a load of wood, contact the chapel office.
