Outreach

Outreach

 
Throughout the year, our church works together to reach out to our community. Each follower of Jesus has the opportunity to naturally connect with neighbors, coworkers, and friends to display the love of Christ in practical ways. Other outreach programs are naturally driven by individual church members and have an impact within their circle of influence. There are many opportunities also available through our local Outreach Partners.

Outreach Resources

 
As Christians, we are instructed to be salt and light in our world, yet sometimes we do not feel adequately equipped carry out this mandate. Our prayer is that these resources can help you be intentional with your life, work, and family so that others may come to Christ because of your willingness to reach out to them.
