Serving needs in Gresham and greater East County
Benevolence: Assistance is available for needy individuals or families in the East Central Gresham area. (Based on an application and interview process.)
Common Threads Quilt Ministry: Talented ladies meet once a month to create beautiful quilts. Quilts are given to member families going through difficult health treatments or who have just had a new baby. Others are given to the Pregnancy Resource Center and Legacy Mt. Hood Hospital. Much of their handiwork is sent to Missions of Hope in Nairobi, Kenya.

Classroom and Grounds prep - Prior to the first day of each school year, Mountainview members help with clean-up on Community Care Day.
School Fundraisers and Special Events - Extra bodies are always needed for these.

much-needed personal items for the homeless and impoverished in Gresham.
