PROVIDING ADVOCACY, DIGNITY, AND SHELTER - PADS
PADS Lake County is a community-based organization that provides trauma-informed support, resources, and shelter to individuals and families experiencing a housing crisis where they vision a community in which homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring; one in which anyone who may experience a housing crisis has timely access to the proper resources and services based on their individual needs. The PADS organization helps individuals and families reach their full potential by providing a comprehensive approach to reducing homelessness. This holistic approach seeks to help neighbors create sturdy foundations in stable homes where they can build brighter futures for themselves and contribute to our community.

Trunk Or treat
The last Saturday weekend of October, Beautiful Savior sponsors for the community an opportunity for children and adults alike to dress up in their favorite not-at-all-scary animation and enjoy Christian music and special treats from trunks in the parking lot. This is a free and wonderful way to be safe at this time of the year keeping the focus of our children on the celebration of freedom that we have in Jesus Christ. Hot & Cold refreshments are always available with picnic foods and snacks for all. Just show up with your entire family and you will be welcomed, but if you have questions for us, you can contact Suzie Hendrixson.

On the third Friday of each month at 6:30pm during the cooler months of October through April, Beautiful Savior hosts families from the congregation and the community to enjoy a casual dinner, play games with the kids, and share in snacks of all kinds. This is a fun evening for everybody and one that you do not want to miss. Just show up and you will be welcomed, but if you have questions for us, be sure to Contact Us.
Starting again on June 25, but most frequently the third Friday of each month at 6:30pm in the warmer months of May through September, Beautiful Savior hosts families from the congregation and the community to enjoy grilling out, games in the yard, and a spectacular bonfire for marshmallows and smores.
