Mission and Outreach

Mission offerings: On the last Sunday of every month, our church collects a second offering to support a variety of missions. At the beginning of each month we will be providing information on the mission.

Outreach: Through the year our church does special outreach projects in the community. We will provide information on these efforts as they occur.

October 2016 – Samaritan’s Purse (Christmas Child Shoe boxes)

Update: Thank you to all who donated and participated in the packing. We had a goal of packing 30 shoe boxes for this year. On Sunday November 13th we packed 40 shoe boxes. When we started doing this project a few years ago it was mainly youth doing the packing. It is exciting to see more adults involved each year.

We will have a box for collecting gift items as well as an offering on October 30th.
