Church draws those in recovery

Robert Friel likes to joke that anybody with a tattoo is automatically a member of his church. He and his wife, Marlene, started The Dalles Vineyard Christian Fellowship out of their home in September 2010. Their ministry is aimed at those who are unchurched, and, without trying, they seem to draw people who are in recovery from addiction.

Fit it for HIM

For over three years now, volunteers at Calvary Baptist Church have done projects for those in need, under a ministry called “Fix it for HIM.” Bill Hamilton retired from Farmers Insurance and then as a private investigator on insurance matters, he wanted a way to serve the community and serve the Lord. After his second retirement, he wanted a way to serve the community and serve the Lord. He made a pitch to his church for doing projects, and initially got 15 people lined up to help out. Today, he has 85 people on his e-mail list. Not all can directly help, he said, but they can pray, or help in other ways.
