Church is so much more than weekly meetings! Church is worshiping God through music, liturgy, Bible study, prayer and also PUTTING OUR FAITH IN TO ACTION by applying what we know to the world outside of the church building. We are heavily involved in being as active in the community and throughout the world as we possibly can be. No, we don't toot our horn and announce to the world when we do things, but below you will find a list of mission opportunities that we are currently involved in. The purpose for listing these is so that perhaps you may find your own ministry opportunity and come get plugged in and help bring the hope, love, and grace of God to the rest of the community and the world.
