Missions

Mission is why we are here

Going into the world near and far to serve others is fundamental to our belief as a Christian community.  Personal faith development often progresses the most while selflessly giving to others.  Find your journey in service to others through participation in one of our mission events or trips.  Join us as we become the hands and feet of Christ.

Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you - John 20:21
