Outreach

We want to be a community whose purpose is to serve one another and the larger community to make a real difference in our world.

We can't just go to church; we must be the church. We want to encourage and invite you to receive and share the Gospel.

Keep the orange bags and buckets full!

So many of our neighbors are facing economic hardships during this time. We would like to give food out in unprecedented numbers to help more families stay in their homes by paying rent or utilities while they are unable to work due to closure or illness.

In fact, we want to double our weekly goals to 1000 lbs. of food and $8000 in the orange buckets. But we can't do it without you.

    • While our formalized Serve Day won’t happen this Sunday, the heart and the opportunity are still very much alive, maybe even more so. We hope you’ll have a chance to do your own Serve Day at home, with your family, in your neighborhoods. Here’s a little list of ideas that might help.
