Firewood Ministry

Central Oregon


Providing wood for SCC families as well as people in the community in need.   Grab an axe and chainsaw and let's get cutting! Our mission is to stockpile wood to provide to families in need during our coldest months to keep them warm! If you would like to help cut, split, stack, pick up and deliver the wood, contact Willie Funk (541) 633-9896. If you are in need of firewood please contact the church office,

Pickleball Outreach


Winter brings the cold and snow to outdoor enthusiasts, while racquets, paddles, and golf clubs are often put away until Spring. Since Sisters has no public indoor court facilities, SCC has opened the Sisters Academy gymnasium and developed three pickleball courts for indoor play.  The facility is open Tuesday and Thursday, 3:30 to 5:30 pm for open play. No registration required.  This community outreach attracts 24-30 pickleball players each day.

Pacific Crest Trail Angels

This summer SCC Trail Angels are giving rides to and from Mckenzie and Santiam Passes to Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) section and through hikers.  Mid to late August is the peak time for hikers to cross our nearby passes on their way from the Mexican border to the Canadian border (or vice versa). Many are looking for a hotel and shower for the night and others are picking up re-supply goods at the Post Office or local stores, or are looking for transportation to Bend. 


There are 13 SCC members signed up to shuttle hikers to/from town and to help with connections once here. We even do a little 'Trail Magic' now and then in the form of breakfast burritos or root beer floats for hikers at Santiam Pass.

For more information, to volunteer, or for rides contact:
