Make a Difference by Serving in Your Community
God calls us to serve those in need—and while for some that means traveling across the globe, for most of us it simply means serving God and others in our homes, workplaces, neighborhoods, and cities. As a church we want to be part of the movement of compassion that transforms our communities by matching our gifts, passions, and abilities to the needs of those around us.
Below are some organizations that share our mission of reaching people for Christ, while providing relief and restoration to people in need. So, find a date and time that works for you to serve, and get started—you can even make it a small group event or family activity!
