If you’d like to help make pizza...
We provide "on the job training" and have a great time working together.  We start at 8:30 AM on Saturday and finish up around 11:00AM with a pizza buffet for all helpers.  Your help is needed and appreciated... hope to see you there!

Online giving now available!

Members and friends of Countryside can now make one-time or recurring gifts directly on our church website. Stop worrying about weekly envelopes or mailing in special donations! Instead, give a gift at any time (from any device that connects to the internet) using a current email and checking account/credit card. It’s simple and secure. You can even turn your tithe into an automatic gift that gives when and how often you’d like with your own online donor account.

Lenten Pantry Fast Challenge

The Mission Team invites you to participate in our annual “Lenten Pantry Fast Challenge”. Can you set aside or purchase one nonperishable item from your pantry or cupboard for each day of Lent, beginning on Ash Wednesday? Imagine what we can do if 10 people give 40 items... if 20 or more give the same number! All donations will be counted and distributed to the shelters and food pantries which we support. Let’s all take the challenge and see what good we can do!! (Please bring whatever you can, even if it’s not 40!) For canned items, pop-tops are preferred, as the recipients may not have access to a can opener. Also, please check the expiration dates on all food items - expired food cannot be distributed.
