Local Outreach

Clarendon continues to provide fundraising events to support local ministries.  We sell coffee and pastries in an Election Day coffee bar at our church which is a polling place.  We sell Christmas trees which raised $7000+ in the first year and will have another Tree Lot  this year beginning November 26. Proceed will support the homeless, the marginalized and those with little food.  We built, planted, and cared for a garden supporting AFAC with fresh vegetables.  And finally, we have adopted an Afghan family in the US on a special visa for interpreters who have served with our servicemen in the Middle East.
