Outreach

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

Matthew 25:35-36

We love our city and we believe that we are called to serve those within our community. We achieve this through partnerships with local organizations already making an impact. Our three areas of focus are: children in need, marriages and families, and homelessness and food insecurities. These partnerships allow us to maximize the impact of our efforts and financial gifts. We’d like to challenge you to get involved by serving 5 times a year. Learn how you can get involved today.

Homelessness & Food Insecurities
