Changing lives begins with you!
The Richland Church Community Service Team is committed to meeting the basic needs of those in our community one person at a time.

We meet EVERY Wednesday from 9:30 - 11:30 am in the Community Services room.

Tri-Cities Diaper Bank
Formed in January 2011, the Tri-Cities Diaper Bank is the newest face of Adventist Community Services here in Washington. Our organization came about as a direct response to a basic Matthew 25 need; "For I was naked and you clothed me." We are the first agency of this kind in the Tri-Cities area and enthusiasm for this faith-based ministry is spreading throughout the community. The Diaper Bank is staffed entirely by volunteers from the Richland & Pasco Seventh-day Adventist churches and we have distribution centers located at both churches. As of January, 2016 the Tri-Cities Diaper Bank has distributed well over 1.5 MILLION diapers to more than 1,800 of the neediest children living in poverty here in our community. Visit the link above or contact the Church Office at 946-8807 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about this ministy or to get involved.
Jason Lee Ministries
The Richland church sponsors a number of outreach programs for Jason Lee Elementary School. For students & families in need at Jason Lee Elementary School, we provide Morning Reading Club, Friday Food Boxes, Thanksgiving & Christmas Baskets and a very special Christmas Party. Friends of Jason Lee also allows our church to provide some essential clothing items to Jason Lee students who are in need. However this ministry provides much more than a box of food, an item of clothing, or a Holiday basket, for a child or family in need. This is an opportunity for church members to get to know these families & journey with them, interact with them, listen to them and develop loving, supportive, friendships with them. We see this as a way for us to reach out and share Jesus with them. For questions or to get involved contact Nadine Willis at 308-8417 or the Church Office at 946-8807.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Caring hearts and a love of knitting or crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry that will reaches out to those in need of comfort and peace.Prayer Shawl Ministry meets every Wednesday from 6:30-8:00 pm in the first classroom at the Richland Church. Looms are available for those who don't crochet or knit and weavers and quilters are also welcome to join us! Or simply come and pray! For questions please contact the Church Office - 509-946-8807.
