As a church FOR the community, we are committed to serving our community. We believe that God has geographically placed us where He wants us to serve. We are continually looking for ways to enhance and serve the needs of our community. Our desire is to serve in such a way that true appreciation is given to God through what we do: “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
Further, we desire to show the love of Jesus Christ to all people. A few of the community organizations we support and serve are listed below. If you would like more information on how to serve in one of these areas, please contact the person associated with each organization or ministry:
