Stw// Local Ministries

Together We Serve our Local Community!

Over the years many incredible local ministries have been birthed out of Overlake and partnerships established in our local area. Below are some ways that you can get involved in making a difference here in our local community.   

Safe Parking

OCC has a Safe Parking ministry to provide a temporary and safe place for up to 15 single men and couples with no place to stay. These guests are living in their cars in the Overlake back parking lot while we work together toward securing permanent housing and other resources.

  • Prepare & Serve a Meal: Every Monday & Saturday, Overlake hosts a meal for our safe parking guests. Individuals and/or families can help by providing and serving a meal.

  • Shower Ministry: Overlake provides showers for anyone that needs them, weekly Mon-Saturday 9am-1pm. We need folks to help check in people, provide towels and any instructions.
