Charity is a virtue of the heart, & not of the hands

Each week, people of all walks of life gather together at Downtown Mission Church also known as The Place of Peace to share a community meal, prayers, conversation, and their lives. Our cooks who provide and serve the meal come from all over Stevens Point and Central Wisconsin, and the menu varies widely.
The meal is served every Thursday except Thanksgiving in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Our address is 1948 Church St, (two blocks behind Belt's Ice Cream on the one way). The doors open at 4:00 pm and dinner is served at 5pm. All are welcome; please feel free to join us.



Evergreen Community Initiatives will be once again putting on Movies in the Park at Pfiffner Park. There will be three free movies sponsored by Sentry Insurance with refreshments provided by Holiday Inn and the Point Brewery (NonAlcohol). Please visit our Facebook page for updates - Movies In The Park - Portage, County, WI

Located at the public library in Stevens Point, a colorfully dressed tree stands. Wrapped in scarves of all sizes and colors each has a simple note that states, “I am not lost. If you are cold, please take me to keep warm.”

One of our co-chairs, Tiffani, is a mother of two small children, an older daughter, as well as a foster parent for our local community. During a Place of Peace meal she was noticing children attending in clothing that was either torn, tattered, or just didn't fit.

We all end up needing assistance at one point or another.

It's true; everyone at some point in their life needs help. There is no denying or avoiding it. It happens. What makes us become the phoenix that rises out of the ashes of despair is the willingness to humbly accept the help, and then in time pay it forward. That is the what the backbone of our programs are about. It would be great if people didn't need help and just got along natrually. It would be great if everyone had a house to turn into a home and endless food on the table. Unfortunately, things don't work that way. Which is why we are here. We are here to help.

However, we also want you to help yourself. So why not scoop popcorn at Movies In The Park or serve food at the Place of Peace? Without our volunteers and donations this group wouldn't exist. So please, lend a hand, help a fellow human through their trials, and pay it forward (even if you are in the midst of receving it).

1 Peter 4:10 – As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.
