Mission & Outreach

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me’
-Matthew 25:40

Service to God and to others starts and ends with dedicated hearts to Him. We are committed to reaching out to those in our community and city for Jesus. Our missions and outreach team is equipped to help plug willing hearts into service.
