Our Mission

Cottonwood’s outreach teams gather regularly to love and serve our local communities.
Each team goes out to bring Jesus to those with the greatest needs outside the four walls of the church.
By serving on an outreach team, you can make spiritual friendships and grow your faith.
Below you will find information about various opportunities and how you can join us in bringing a living Jesus to a dying world by meeting practical needs.
The Outreach Community would like to invite you

Ready to serve?


What do I bring:

We are asking for donations of new socks only. The sizes, colors, and types can vary (children, youth and adult sizes are all welcome), but we are asking that all socks be in packages to make the distribution more efficient. For those of you out of town or watching online, you can participate through this giving link

Who can participate:

Everyone is invited to participate. Individuals and families can participate. Kids and Youth will have collection bins in their lobbies so they can bring socks to their respective services. There will be Love to Others collection bins around campus for easy drop-off.

When do I bring my donations:

Collection days will be December 4, 7, & 11. We will keep a few containers through the end of December. Online giving will close at the end of the year.

How will this campaign serve our community:

The sock donations will go to a variety of partners we work with throughout the year. We will be distributing to children and youth in foster care, the elderly living at long-term care facilities, homeless individuals, unaccompanied minors living in group homes, individuals in rehab, and families in crisis.
