As a community of faith, we give. We give of our time, our resources, our abilities, and our hearts. As we do, we witness to the ultimate gift of life given to us in Christ Jesus. Throughout the year, there are numerous opportunities to give to and through the church, whether financially or via acts of service in the community.
Our Deacons encourage the support of Family Promise, a local organization who works to help families experiencing homelessness, and helps low-income families achieve sustainable independence through community-based response. Visit their website to learn more: Family Promise.
