We love our neighbors.
We strive to show it through a variety of relationships and ministries.
Our Outreach Ministry Team seeks to listen to the needs of our community
so that we can work together with love and compassion to meet them.
Whether you are hungry for food, connection, support, or purpose, we are here for you.
Whatever your passion is, we have a place for you to serve.
