Life Pax

Takes its name from the products it produces- inexpensive, nutritionally sound, packed meals that are easily stored and readily consumed anytime, anywhere.  Life Pax’ greater value reaches far beyond the packaging. It touches countless individuals; the hungry-needy, the giver (including every person who distributes meals), and groups in our community who gather to assemble Life Pax: churches, neighborhood associations, police departments, social agencies, and other charitable organizations.

Love INC of Clackamas County


"To help churches help people by mobilizing local churches to transform lives and communities In the Name of Christ" by:

-Helping churches inventory their “people potential” and other assets.

-Match willing volunteers and resources to corresponding people with needs.

-Maintain a high level of success by creating a central clearinghouse to screen requests, eliminate duplicate services between community agencies and churches, and facilitate collaboration and shared resources among those in the Love INC network.

As churches show Christ's love to their neighbors, communities see exciting results:

-Families in need receive immediate and long-term help.

-Church members use their gifts and talents in hands-on ministry.
-Local churches come together, modeling the unity of the Body of Christ.
-Communities are transformed.
