Serve the Community

Inspired by Christ's call to love one another, we are moved to serve, encourage, and help our friends and neighbors. Through the years, our community has inspired, motivated and equipped volunteers according to their interests and talents. We invite you to explore the wealth of opportunities for people of all ages to make a difference in the mission of the church. 

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." ~  Matthew 5:16
