Community Outreach

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. Throughout the year, our church works together to reach out to our community. 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.
