Serving Our Community

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.

Community Meals

On the 3rd Saturday of each month, we host a free community meal for all from 11:30-12:30pm.

Food Shelf

In partnership with ICA Food Shelf, we offer a food shelf at our church twice a month.

Little Free Pantry

On the driveway outside our church is a Little Free Pantry. Everyone is invited to take what they need or leave what they want to share. Non-perishables and snacks are best.

Simpson Shelter

Once a month, our church serves a hot meal at the men's shelter. This program resumes in September 2021.
