Outreach & Missions

We are called to share the gospel of Jesus Christ as individual believers and as a church in word and deed. This means we will go into the world and evangelize as we go and we will be a community that shows the life-changing power of the gospel in our loving unity. Through traditional as well as innovative means, members will use their gifts and talents to create opportunities to lead others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Special Projects

SEND Relief backpacks – we plan to distribute 150 backpacks containing school supplies and toiletries to local public schools in the first week of October 2021. The first 75 backpacks are on their way to us now. We’ll post an update when they arrive. We are asking that individuals pick up the empty backpacks from the church and pack them with school supplies. A suggested list of supplies is posted below so you can start purchasing them on sale.

Monetary donations are also welcome. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please make a donation to the Missions/Ministry Fund with note that your donation is for SEND backpacks. <<click here to make an online donation>>
