Serving our world.
Jesus commands us to "go." We make it our mission to love God, love others, and serve our world which can look different from person to person and community and community.
Check out the ways we're serving our world right now:
Generous Giving Fund
As a church, we provided over $24,200 of financial assistance in 2018 to people in our community. In 2019 we continue to help meet the needs of our church family and community to ensure that there is "no fear" in our church. We use the funds from our "Generous Giving Fund" to support all of our benevolence. You can choose to give directly to this fund in your giving.
We are excited to announce this year that we are raising $40,000 to support community ministries and outreach for 2020. Your end of the year giving isn't just a great tax benefit - it's a great benefit to our community and church family that is already changing lives, bring hope, and casting out fear.

We're serving along side Single Parent Provision again this year at the 2019 Single Moms Christmas Dinner. It takes over 500 volunteers to help make this amazing night happen and we know that you will be blessed from by this serving opportunity.
