Love INC bridges the gap, connecting those in need to the local resources available. For the past 28 years we have had the joy of partnering with area Christian churches and volunteers, bringing holistic help to the needy. Love INC provides opportunities for individuals to help others, offering their resources in service in ways that are legitimate, meaningful and manageable. When calling Love INC, discouraged people of all faiths and lifestyles are welcomed warmly and treated with dignity; those feeling helpless are empowered to be part of their own solutions. Our clients may receive transportation assistance, financial coaching, household repairs, assistance with work-related needs, and referrals to many kinds of resources.
The goal of this auction is to raise sufficient funds to continue in our vision of uniting Christian churches in living out their faith by serving people in need in their communities. The theme this year is “Uniting Hearts in Harvest.” When you partner with Love INC you are joining together with other community members to serve our neighbors in need. We each can make a difference in the lives of others, but we can make a greater impact united rather than divided. We need your help! Come be a part of the harvest!
Please join us Friday evening, October 13, 2017, from 6-8 pm at Bellingham Covenant Church. Contact Shannon Williamson with interest in reserving a spot. Contact by email: Shannon@whatcomloveinc.org or call 360-715-1175.

COMPASSION MINISTRY NETWORK
Seeking to connect those working locally in church compassion and benevolence ministry.
SAVE THE DATE: Tuesday, January 24th, 2017, 8AM. Location Trinity Lutheran Grace Center, 2408 Cornwall Ave. RSVP to Shannon@whatcomloveinc.org.
The Call from Christ is to be responsive and compassionate to our neighbor in need.
The challenge: Every day churches are seeing the same need and responding to the same need without learning what is already being done. How can local churches get informed on what compassion efforts are already being made by other churches?
The Solution: Love INC is hosting a Compassion Ministry Network to facilitate communication among local churches in the area of our compassion efforts.
A few benefits for engaging with this:
- Get informed on what other church compassion efforts exist
- Reduce the reduplication of effort
- Identify areas of need that are untouched
- Together as the Church in the city, we can be better stewards of our resources
- Have conversations with the benevolence care coordinators of other churches
- Unity among the church as we serve.
On Friday evening, October 21st, 2016 at 6pm, we will be having our 6th annual Fundraiser Event to benefit Whatcom Love INC hosted at Bellingham Covenant Church. We’d love to have you join us for delicious appetizers and dessert, silent auction, paddle raise, program & entertainment.
Please mark your calendars and join us in prayer for God’s blessing on this event.
This years theme is Offer the Corner of Your Field, inspired by Leviticus 19:9-10, which reads, “When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field right up to its edge, neither shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest. …You shall leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am the Lord your God.”
