Outreach & Response

“With open minds and compassionate hearts, we seek to be God’s loving hands in the world.”  This is our mission as a church, and we try to live it out by reaching beyond our church’s walls to serve those in need.  Below are just some of the ways in which we are seeking to live this out and we welcome all to join us as we try to be God’s hands and feet in the world!
